    I think I need to get to bed soon.
    Or should this be with our sleep discussion?
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    there's one road I used to drive on almost every day and I worked well at one spot where things went down to one lane--and there was a merge lane for people coming in from the right just before that--so it was 3 lanes into one.
    Most days it worked--it slowed down a little--but it moved
    It must have been the slight slow down that bothered some people
    One day I was in the lane people were merging into (I was in it because I made a left turn to get on the road--so I was already in the lane, I didn't have to merge into it--and I had just let someone in--as part of the zipper merge when I looked in the mirror & I saw a guy in a big pickup truck who was in the lane being merged into--he roared out of that lane & drove on the shoulder to try & get ahead 2 or 3 cars.
    When I didn't let him in (By then it was one lane & the flow of traffic didn't allow that to be done safely--so he had to back off) he got in behind me--and after the road went to two lanes I kept an eye on him as he zoomed into the new lane to the right & then cut me off.
    As I was watching for him I was prepared & no harm done--then he went back to the other lane & zoomed off (Most of the cars stayed int he left lane & turned off to the left at the next intersection (Which is what I did)
    Over the next couple of weeks I saw the same truck doing the same thing--always trying to squeeze in.
    But that was the only time he did that where it directly affected me.
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    Don't you wish there was a cop there to nail him?

    Maybe he will be in a video like this someday:

    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    Yes--although I do remember one intersection that had a single lane for turning left, but over a couple of weeks most days I saw he same car treating it as a double turning lane--which in that intersection was dangerous--not enough space for it.
    then one day I saw him do that again--and when I got to the intersection I saw he got pulled over.
    The police watched that intersection for a few days after that--and I saw the car again--but no double turn for him.
    Which is good--some people get ticketed but treat it as a make up for all the times they got away with it--so they don't care & don't learn.
    I suspect that truck driver would be like that.

    Some times you wonder how these people are still alive.
