>The other day I went down to the Bay Area to visit some friends. It served to remind me why I live in Sacramento. The traffic here is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING like the traffic in the Bay Area.
For whatever reason, the human race can figure out how to put men on the moon, but the concept of merging lanes on the freeway is baffling to this same species. It’s really not that difficult. Just take turns like you learned in kindergarten. Also, the fast lane doesn’t need to slow down just because the slow lane has a merge situation. Just freaking GO!
If I had to face traffic challenges with a companion, at least I would be entertained or distracted by a conversation. Creeping along the interstate alone in the car is one of my own person hells. You would think after facing crap alone for most of my life I would get used to it. Well, I might be used to it, but I certainly don’t like it.
