    Don’t you love the people who stay in that lane and then want to push in front of you?

    Morning Crustonians!

    Burl, Inc folks are a pet peeve of mine. I try to not let them in as well, and I’d really like to toss ‘em a hand grenade while they are waiting. But here in TX, they’re all armed and really ready. Don’t look at people and particularly don’t flip ‘em off.
    Burl’s cousin Hurl is the guy who decides to drive on the shoulder to do the same thing.

    It would be a scary Halloween video….

    Being cooped up in a car with those guys, for several hours in almost stopped traffic…..

    A real-life horror film.

    Do you put down the windows and breathe diesel fumes?

    Or…. risk ….
    you know.

    Good morning!

    Ok, why don’t you have your coffee before you start thinking about that, Crustwoodians.

    The freeway exit for a small town a bit north of here has become inadequate.

    Cars leaving the freeway must slow down to about 35mph….
    which at rush hour, backs up the off-bound traffic, and thus the whole northbound lane, behind them.

    The unofficial solution has been that when it’s busy, cars start driving on the shoulder for a mile or two before the exit.

    Several times, before I realised that,
    I tried to turn onto the actual offramp….
    but some of the cars coming off the shoulder, especially if driven by Burl’s ilk,
    zoom to cut you off,
    making you slam on the brakes and possibly get rear-ended.

    And I could see a couple of those jerks laughing about it.

    We don’t let them in either. They are warned in plenty of time so no reason to try to get ahead.
    Sometimes the police are there to get them in but most times someone else does We try to stay as close to the car in front. I hate traffic anyway and avoid it when I can.
    There are a lot of Burls and Jerry’s out there anyway…

    I agree, but then there are the fools here that ramp you on the right and cut you off. Almost got into a wreck the other day with a fool KID that passed me on the RIGHT as I was exiting the freeway and cut me off. I usually try to not let the butt heads that stay in the lane that is closing, back into traffic but there is always some bleeding heart up there that will do it.

    I’m practically hugging the bumper of the car in front of me and hope the car behind me is doing the same. What makes them think they’re so special?

    I do have to say they’re doing one thing right. There are at least three air fresheners hanging from the mirror. Not enough, but it’s a start.

    Well, perhaps it could be their 4-door F150 diesel duallie. Or the one that won’t look at you. They know you’re there. You know they know it. They know you know but they’re going to pretend. It becomes a game of “This car is stolen, is yours?”

    “Those” drivers should all be infested with fleas. I’ll block the left lane so they can’t do that. It’s great when trucks cut a whole group of those idiots off also!
    Bravo on this one and why am I not surprised Burl is one of “them”?

    I agree with all that Burl is a selfish jerk. In the past I would have made all effort to keep him from merging. That is until a nice police officer educated me about the zipper merge. Two lanes meet at the merge point and alternate turns to merge. Just like the teeth in a zipper. It is the law in some states.
