The assholes are all going slower than me and the maniacs are all going faster.

If a driver is able to get away with this manuever, what's happened is that he's identified you as a passive, simpering, frightened fawn of a motorist and is simply exploiting your weakness. No driver worth the space he occupies on the road allows this to happen -- alpha drivers ensure that any such attempt merely ends with the cutter being stuck in the left-hand lane, impotent, weak, defeated.

tripleseven: Abox: I've never been bothered by this.  Sometimes when you get to your exit lane, NOBODY will leave a gap so you drive up until you find one.  Since I can't always tell the dif between those folks and the ones just trying to cut the line, I reserve my rage for bigger battles.

I cut people in line and think it's OK
.

I drive in a constant state of rage, treating every perceived infraction as a deliberate affront to my manhood.



Fixed that for you.

PainInTheASP: Now if they would only start ticketing the assholes who ignore miles of "Lane Closed" signs and force their way into the proper lane at the last second.

I'm looking at you, dickhead beamer with the "Baby on Board" sticker.  You know who you are.  You suck.


When you see a left lane closed ahead sign and you immediately get in the right lane, you are being a lemming. The closure is not 5 miles behind the merge area. You should fill both lanes leading to a merge area, not become single file miles before the merge. A few years ago a local work area had the left lane closed, and leading up to it had a sign saying "USE BOTH LANES TO MERGE POINT" the lemmings got in the right lane for 2 miles through 2 traffic lights. There was never a sign saying which lane was closed ahead. Then the left lane became the open lane a few months later and all the lemmings still hung out in the right lane. I've never laughed so hard in my life when I drove down the empty left lane and came to the merge seeing the right lane was the one closed.

What bugs me is people who aren't paying attention to their driving, they're doing other things like talking on their phone, playing with the radio or DOING NEWS REPORTS.

...oh, and none of this really addresses the question, what do you do if there's already a long tailback caused by people who merge early?  Because if you skip the line, especially if there's no exits or stoplights that might be disrupted by a longer tailback, people are going to think you're an asshole and feel entirely justified refusing to let you in, and no amount of crying 'fluid dynamics, you lemmings!' is going to change their minds.

phamwaa: Super Chronic: Sorry to hear that. Allstate has been really good to me over the years, though. (On my homeowners policy, anyway.) Probably a lot depends on who you deal with, unfortunately, and that goes for every company.

Agreed that some pricks cause problems because they're simply pricks, but it still reflects on the company as a whole.

<Not so csb>
We decided to switch from Allstate to a more reasonably-priced insurer, since Allstate had been steadily jacking our premium beyond all reason. We had paid for the homeowner insurance and were two months into the term when we switched. The sweetheart agent at Allstate immediately informed the mortgage company that our policy had lapsed, and the mortgage company slapped on their own policy and placed it in escrow.

After two further months of fighting this, we said "screw it" and paid off the mortgage. So, no more interest for you, Suntrust.

We received a check for the overpaid mortgage balance: $0.01. I framed it and I hope it farks over their accounting.
</Not so csb>


Was not the agent. The cancel notice is demanded by law and automatic.
Have you not learned that the mortgagor owns the house?

Ah, you mean folks who understand fluid mechanics and what the term "zipper merge" means? Those folks?


Yeah. Those jerks.  They suck.
