Truth Before Dishonor

I would rather be right than popular

Common courtesy

Posted by Dana Pico on 2011/12/06

When I lived in the South, in Kentucky and later, Virginia, when someone was trying to merge onto a limited access highway, people driving in the right hand lane would move over to the left, to let the merging driver enter, as long as there wasn’t someone in the left lane which would make such a courtesy unsafe.

Now that I’m living in Pennsylvania with the damned Yankees, if I’m trying to merge onto the highway, and there’s only one car, just one car! in the right hand lane, and nothing in the left but dust, do you think that the driver would move over to the left lane, to let me on?

Not no, but Hell no! And if I ever do experience it, I check the license plate of the car of the courteous driver, ‘cause I figure he’ll be from the South.
