I’ve been seeing this more and more over the last few years and I just don’t get it.
I’ll come up to a stoplight. Someone who’s already sitting at the light and up front will be in the left lane. I’ll pull up next to them in the right lane. When the light changes they take off, pull over into my lane and then turn right into the shopping center, gas station, whatever. I don’t get this, why, if you were at the light first, before anyone, didn’t they get into the lane they wanted? I can see if there’s a lot of people in the lane you want and no one in the other lane, but it’s always when very few people are around and they always want over a few feet away.
I see this almost everyday, from two lanes going straight, or two lanes making both right and left turns. Yesterday some guy was yelling at me, though I didn’t know because I thought he was on a cell phone and I couldn’t understand him very well, asking me if he could get over. You were there first buddy, you could have gotten in this lane a mile ago. I would have let him over had I known he was talking to me, but having a phone up to your ear and I’ll ignore you.
So what gives, is there something in the new books that tells people to do this? Are people that stupid thay don’t know where they want to go? Do people just want to try and race? I really don’t get it.
