Knowing how to merge is part of driving

What is wrong with you assholes in Halifax ?

I had the misfortune to have to go to the peninsula today ( I know, feel sorry for me, I deserve some sympathy)... I came in around the basin & when you top the hill on the 102 & can see Halifax there are several short on ramps. THEY HAVE YIELD SIGNS & THEY"RE NOT FOR THE PEOPLE ON THE HIGHWAY! What do you think your bloody well doing ? I do not have to pull over to the outside lane to let you in, I do not have to slow down or stop either, YOU HAVE TO YIELD TO MY RIGHT OF WAY !

To the idiot coming down the ramp by Scotia Square bridge bound, I am not going to stop & let you on the damn road... that little triangular sign is for you to obey, not me.

YOU HAVE TO Y I E L D!!! IF I had of moved into the outside lane, I would have creamed the guy on the motorcycle right beside me. Finally to the idiot in Dartmouth coming down the Portland street ramp onto the Circ, I am not going to stop for you, blowing your horn trying to push my truck out of your way won't work...blowing your horn while screaming at me today changed nothing, I am intelligent enough to realise I cannot move the 18 wheeler in the outside lane out of my way just so you can merge with the highway traffic...if you can't get out, YOU HAVE TO SLOW THE FUCK DOWN OR MAYBE STOP ! ! ! That isn't my fault...its the rules of the DAMN ROAD & you people really need to learn them!

I need a drink & its no where near 5 yet! (& yes i know its 5 o'clock somewhere,it just isn't where I am right now.)—More
