People Are So Rude
June 30, 2020 9:26am CST
We went down to the cottage yesterday, I had to be there so that they could connect the Internet and cable, I needed new boxes since we had to actually be there. It was a pretty exciting ride on the way there with hail and very heavy rain. Anyway, the cable man arrived this morning and all went well. On the ride home when we got to the Hudson river the toll booth was really a mess. For some reason, three lines were stopped dead. I was very patient I waited in my line for at least 10 minutes and finally, I signaled and made an attempt to move into the lane on my left. A car was along side me so I waited and then the man in the second car looked at me and shook his head NO, evidently, he wasn't going to let me in, The car behind him did let me in, What really miffed me was he had a God Bless America License plate surround. I resisted the urge to flip him the bird but did think to myself, God is not really too pleased with you right now young man. I realize he didn't have to let me merge in but I have never had anyone look and me and shake their head at me. It is a crazy time for sure.

@BelleStarr I find that when they make the mistakes, they don't do the apologetic wave either . . . they flip the bird . Why can't people just be nice on the road . . . everyone is wearing their seat belts too tight or something .

@DianneN I wondered about that but no, Kasey isn't sending Jack to day camp either, just not safe. I think somehow the sensors weren't working right cause it is hard to imagine that 3 people at three booths had problems with their easy pass at the same time !! At least you will get to see them and have grandma time, which we all know is the best time of all!!

The only time I won't let someone in is if they do something rude. For example, if there are two lanes of traffic on a road heading in the same direction, and you pass a sign that says "right lane closed ahead," most people will immediately merge over into the left lane, because they know the right lane is closed ahead. But there's always some wise guy who will stay in the right lane, drive all the way up to the point where the lane is closes/blocked, and then EXPECT people to just let him merge into the left lane. Meanwhile, the hundred cars in the left lane who all did the right thing and merged back when they saw the sign, are all upset because one joker decided to not follow proper traffic etiquette. That's the clown I won't let merge in. But otherwise, I place nice with everyone else.
People are so crazy and this kind of people who not respect others also face though time as they like everything go as they want but when it not happened then they become burn from inside. Its good to not waste time behind this kind of people.

Yeah, people can be rude. Last week I was at the gas station that was crowded, and one truck, I couldn't figure out if they were lining up to get gas, or pulling out of the way..anyway,,,the guy in another vehicle started pointing, making impatient gestures and shaking his head at me that a pump was available. So. I pulled into one, and he pulled in the way down below..I said "You don't have to be rude." We all want to get home. "I wasn't sure what they were trying to do." He didn't respond.
@BelleStarr That must have been hard to drive in hail and heavy rain. I agree it is nice when someone will not let you in to a different lane. That is so sad that people have something on their car and does not apply to their behavior. People are really showing their true colors during this virus.
