Cease doing the Jersey Slide earlier than you kill someone

What a detailed name. I used to be on 22 West with my little boys within the backseat over the weekend with site visitors surrounding me doing simply 60 mph. I used to be within the middle lane only a bit earlier than the 202/206 interchange.

I noticed a blur of silver arising quick in my passenger facet mirror and I simply knew it was coming. The Jersey slide.

This one you could possibly name the Reverse Jersey Slide, going from the proper lane to the far left, as a result of this stretch of twenty-two has companies proper in its extensive medium. I may simply inform the dope was going to do one thing silly.

I watched him velocity by me on my proper solely to dart in entrance of me whereas hitting his brakes making me hit my very own. However that wasn’t the shut name. That was the poor man within the left lane as a result of silver automotive moron in a single fell swoop lower proper in entrance of him and jammed these brakes on a lot tougher. He introduced that automotive within the left lane to a loud cease, rubber burning into the highway and brakes and tires screaming mightily as he tried to not collide.

All of this as a result of the man in that silver automotive realized he needed to enter the driveway for the Buffalo Wild Wings that sat within the median.

I used to be tremendous, I noticed it coming and it wasn’t that shut. However this poor man within the left lane, man, he virtually bit it. Simply because this loser didn’t need to go as much as that 202/206 interchange and take the cloverleaf to show round since he wasn’t in correct place.

Lanes exist for a cause. 22 West just isn’t the goddamn Pocono Raceway and your want for a beer and an appetizer doesn’t outweigh the opposite driver’s want to reside and see his youngsters develop up.

As a substitute, we’ll simply sit again and snort while you wrap your self round that inevitable utility pole. It truthfully can’t occur quickly sufficient.
