Rules of the road

When you are driving along a 2-lane road (both lanes going the same direction) and the lane next to you is coming to an end, do you find that the driver whose lane is ending seems to think YOU are the one who is supposed to merge? Even when they have a sign telling THEM to merge! A guy nearly took off my rear-end today because his lane was ending and he wanted to be where I was. I was the one in front, yet he felt the need to flip me off from behind. Does this ever happen to you?

  • When my DH is driving, I always have to remind him that he's in the ending lane and needs to get over way before he doesn't have a chance! I can't stand people that do that!

  • LOL! If the person is ahead of me, I'm kind enough to let them merge in, no problem. But, if the person is along the back part of me, I don't budge!
