I was driving home on the highway this afternoon. It was a busy time on the roads, but not quite rush hour. This particular exit usually has two lanes exiting, but one was closed due to construction. This meant a change in traffic pattern. It was confusing. Actually, it was hairy as far as traffic goes...
An SUV was trying to move into the exit lane and another large pickup truck refused to let the person in. The person in the SUV was not being rude or anything.
He had his turn signal on.
He slowed down to try to get to the ramp. He actually looked pretty desperate...
He signaled to please let him in...
That pickup truck driver was simply nasty!
He refused to give an inch.
He even sped up so the SUV just couldn't get in.
What? Is this a race?
The next exit is 8 - yes, 8 miles up the road.
The SUV ended up going to the next exit to turn around - 16 extra miles all because someone wouldn't be nice.
This little incident happened right in front of me.
Yes, my knickers are in a twist...
I try to be a considerate driver.
I've been lost.
I've been confused in a new traffic pattern.
I've been there - and so has everybody else.
So -- if someone wants to get off the highway, please... be nice and let them off.
