You Have a Lane - Please Stay In It

Posted on Mon, Nov 14, 2011 at 10:22 AM

Folks, when you come up behind a pulled-over bus, and there is clearly time to pass it (let's say it just stopped and you can see a crowd of people waiting to get on it), there's just one other teensy-weensy thing that maybe you could take into account - if there is oncoming traffic in the other lane, you have exactly zero fucking right to obstruct it.

I see way too many times that I can't proceed past a stopped bus in the other lane, precisely because of all the folks who are passing the bus and coming into my lane to do it. And I wish I could say that I'm sorry for giving some of those drivers heart-attacks for playing chicken and not actually letting them be assholes... but I'm not.

And for those timid drivers who actually stop, and let other drivers be assholes even though they don't have any right of way, kindly grow some balls. Thank you. —My Car is 15 Years Old and Can Stand Some Dings
