I especially love the people that block you from being able to go, then stare straight ahead like your on a different asteral plane and not really there. We're all human, people. If you made the mistake and blocked the road say," sorry". Then don't do it next time. Learn from it. You expect your kids to learn shit.
There are several degrees of intersection blocking:
Involuntary: you pulled up over the line so the asshole behind you wouldn't hit you in the rear 'cause he wasn't paying attention. This person usually tries to let you squeeze by, and might even back up.
Second degree: Your paying too much attention to your illegally used iPod, magazine, or poor judgement using your cell phone, GPS, or McSandwich. This causes you to make me late, but also makes me will you to drop your electronics in a puddle, or spill your food on your lap.
First Degree: This is the "I am more important than you, I can't see you" dickhead. This person follows the last car at the yellow light trying to squeeze through, or doesn't let a person pull into line from a side street, even though they are pulling up to a red light. Like pulling into the intersection is going to get you there any faster. It's called gridlock, asshole. All you've accomplished is the potential of someone getting road rage, and most people in line not giving a shit if you get beaten. It's a major domino effect. You have just caused a number of people to be late besides you and have added to the problem. People would stand in line to vote in overpaid cop details if they would just drop a ticket on these people.
First Degree with no remorse: This is the worst ever. Those who believe in hell feel there is a special place for these people where they wait thousand of years to get to the front of a parking lot line only to be told, "Sorry, we just filled the last spot."
This mega asshole, is the person who tries to create a second or extra lane in a road. I've even seen them go part up on curbs. They are the person who travels in the breakdown lane, or even where it is allowed, past that point. How does this block traffic? Somewhere up ahead there is still a red light or blockage dick! What goes through these peoples minds? "Hey look at all these jerks sitting stopped here, there must be 100 people having strokes all at once. I guess I am lucky I was not afflicted. I better just swing around all these people." (see my blog on blocking emergency vehicles for some of the same rant)
So here's How to Fucking ... Not Block an Intersection, and make the world a better place.
Step 1: Look to see if you are coming up to a yellow light and be ready to stop before the line
Step 2: Pay attention to what's around you, including the cross streets.
Step 3: If the light is red as you are approaching, let one person trying to merge in. I call it the zipper effect.
Step 4: It is physically impossible to make a 2 ton hunk of metal shrink on command. Stop making another lane.
In every area there is one of these spots where people ride down the lane past a bunch of other people that are waiting to go, and try to squeeze in at the front of the line
In our area it is Route 2 at Alewife ... You locals know it!
I think it would be awesome if people had little signs in their car that said, "Nice try fucker, I ain't letting you in!"
