Jake over at the School of Rhodes has an open letter about line jumping (that is people who zoom up to take advantage of construction merges). Read the letter I think he has a point but it reminded of a story.

Years ago before the kids joined the firm and Mrs. OneMan used to work weekends, OneMan used to crew on a racing sailboat. One Saturday morning I am driving downtown and hit the old Hillside Strangler and a car with about 5 young women in their early twenties (same age as I was at the time) zoom by on the left shoulder (because waiting is obviously for un-cute chumps like me). Oh well, I get further up and what do I see, they are pulled over by a member of the Illinois State Police on the shoulder further up the merge.

So what do I do, start laughing my head off, as I go by at 3 miles an hour. The driver see this and I am not sure because the window was up in her car, says 'Funny You' about three times. This causing me to laugh harder.

Have to say it made my whole day.
