In our part of the country. ..
the local governments are taking advantage of a stimulus package offered by the federal governement to boost our economy.
So . .
there is road work from here to there. .
I've had plenty of time to think on drivers whilst I wait in the construction zones.
Generally. . .there are signs offering information about lanes being closed up ahead.
First. ..it seems like a . . ."just sayin" sort of thing. .
Then the next sign . .is a "400 meters ahead. . .single lane traffic)
Tell me the truth. . .what kind of a driver are you?
Are you a stay in your lane until you are merged into the other. .
being the last one to merge?
Are you a driver that watches for a possible opening in the traffic to get your spot in the new lane?
Do. . .you pass ten cars and then. . .
begin to merge?
If you are. .
I just want to tell you something. . .
Be nice. . .
merge with the rest of us. .
and wait your turn.
After (doing the math here now. ..wait . . too bad blogger didn't have a little clock that turns around while a person has to think. . .). . .36 years of driving. . .
I'm still always surprised at those that drive to the front of the line. .
pretending they don't see they have to merge.
One of these days. .
one of these days. .
I'm going to do it too. .
I'm just going to pretend I don't see the merge sign. .
and I'm going to zip right past the rest of the line up to the front. .
turn on my blinker. .
and wait for that
(PS. ..I am smiling)
All for now. .
