    Time to take the Pontiac and go cruise Woodward avenue it’s 80 degrees and feels like summer. The merc now has a headliner interior guy should finish the seats next week. Feeling good to not truck a couple of days.

    Especially on highway 491 so many dips that sometimes I think my trailer will snap in half.

    As a young early 20s trucker, when almost none were younger than 45, my favourite ## was I own this, do you own yours.....

    Silence was always deafening

    Ok, I need to know if I was the Richard today, or if I was just dealing with a bunch of Karens. Driving East on I-40 in AR. Construction ahead. Signs saying a merge in 3 miles. Everyone is in the left lane. THREE miles back from the actual merge. Right lane is clear. So I keep tooling along. Another trucker pulls out of the left lane to block my forward progress and keep his spot with the left lane. Still over a mile to the merge. I asked him to move or get back over. He got pissy. I lost my composure and did something dumb and not to be mentioned. The whole time this driver and several others are saying I am in the wrong.

    My viewpoint. The merge ahead signs are warning signs. Just like Stop ahead, or traffic light ahead. They are telling you that you need to be cautious and prepared to take action. Till you get to the actual merge sign, stop sign, or traffic light. Same as a "reduced speed ahead" sign. It's telling you to be ready to slow down by the time you get to that sign. Traffic was backed up way farther than it needed to be due to these morons. Was I in the wrong? Or were they just whining Karens?
