Ever been on the highway? I thought so! Well then I am sure you have merged a time or two. There are no laws as to how and when to merge but there are some unsaid rules. The unsaid rules are about to be said, yeah… That’s right, I said it!
Getting on the highway really isn’t that hard, but alas, some people really do make it that way, hard. I think it’s fun to watch people enter, especially the ones who are mad. They are not mad for any certain reason they just ooze anger. How do I know? Because they are usually yelling at their windsheild, or giving their steering wheel a severe tongue lashing. This lashing happens before they even get into merge position. Laughable I tell ya, laughable!!
So you want to know the untold secrets? The unsaid rules of the road as it pertains to merging? Well, let me tell you what merging doesn’t involve.
