Soapbox Saturday - To Merge or Not to Merge.....

Okay, I'm a bit stubborn, but I can usually admit when I'm wrong.  Here's the topic....merging.  Tell me if I'm right or wrong.

When you know a lane is going to end, shouldn't you scoot your booty over asap?  One of my biggest pet peaves is when I merge, even when it slows me down, and then I watch a couple of cars floor it until they get to the last possible point to merge.  It's like they are saying, "I'm more important than you and you have to let me in!"  I think to myself, you better have a woman in labor in that car.  Maybe I'm over-reacting, but that's how I feel.

Flashback: I started dating a guy right before I met Mr. Right.  He completely disagreed with me on this topic.  He thought the lane should be used until the very end.  I was floored.  The relationship didn't progress after that.  (Okay, that obviously wasn't the only issue.)

So, what do you think?  Am I a raging pyscho with pent up anger or is it an unspoken rule to merge sooner than later?  Give it to me straight.
