To add to my list of "dislikes"....

This drives me absolutely crazy!...

The other day, I was driving along....needed to get onto the 60. So I stop, wait in line for the arrow to turn green, all patient like, but ready to be zoomin down the freeway... Then the light changes so I'm makin my little turn, gettin all ready to speed up so I can make my way into the flow of traffic....when this BOZO in front of me is doin like....30? Maybe? He's also about to "attempt" to merge into this traffic and I'm like..."WHAT THE POO?!?!?" If you expect to do this and live, you better pick up the pace a bit!! So, fortunately there were 2 lanes on the on-ramp, so I left him in my dust, cuz "GAH!" already, right?! Anyone who's getting on the freeway better know in advance that the speedlimit is gonna be 65 right away, and to me, the smart thing to do would be, get as close to that along that ramp as you can before you attempt to merge. Am I completely out of line here?

No ma'am. You are completely correct. And think, it's only going to get worse in a few weeks when the snowbirds get here.

Colorado is flooded with ex-Californians these days, and you could guess which were which by the way they handled merging. Pick-up, "NATIVE" bumper sticker, Broncos window stickers ... they're going to stop and wait for the road to clear and then make their little awkward move. I used to sit behind them shouting, "Merge! MERGE!!! Please, for the love of God, MERGE!!!!!" (And I'd usually hear Josiah's voice when I said that, btw.)

But -- you're right. And the Snowbirds are a'comin'! Heh heh heh!

Sarah - you make me laugh. the biggest highway regularly travelled here in Idaho Falls is two lanes not 8 like the 60! I miss those days of cursing at inept highway drivers! One more reason for me to come visit soon
:-) But if I drive too slow people will think I am the snowbird and flip me off or something (the potato on our plate will convict me). Gotta love AZ.
