is when there are two lanes of traffic that move down to one. everyone has ample warning, there are signs and everything. we all move over, but some jerkface in a luxury sedan or some soccer mom in a high dollar SUV just stays in the closing lane and then expects everyone to let them in at the last possible second. HELLO MORON, THAT’S THE REASON TRAFFIC IS SLOWING DOWN! IF YOU WOULD MOVE OVER WHEN YOU SAW THE SIGN, WE COULD ALL KEEP THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC GOING, BUT SINCE YOU ARE “BETTER THAN ALL OF US” I GUESS WE HAVE TO LET YOU IN!
i’m serious. it makes me road rage/red faced angry. it makes me want to say wirty dords. and that is the case. they cut because they feel they are, or where they have to be is more important than everyone else. we really don’t have traffic problems in Lufkin (only around the middle school), but just today i was leaving a space for another car in the oncoming lane to turn, and an Escalade went around me and filled the space. i was like you are kidding me. if my kids hadn’t been with me, i may have been tempted to show them the middle finger of fellowship, but i didn’t.
and we wonder why kids push each other for places in line. you only have to watch the car pick up line after school. our children come by the me first mentality honestly because they see it every day. entitlement and selfishness are learned traits.
now the real question, does it tick me off because i’m righteously indignant, i hate what i see in myself, or i’m jealous that they keep cutting and we keep letting them?
