Heading home from NAPA this weekend, had to get some coolant for the Chevy, and there’s this red Ford Fusion in front of me. Now we come up on the 4 way intersection, both hanging a left. We’re now between 2 gas stations. The guy in the Fusion hits his left turn signal and begins to turn left.
I do what I’ve done a million times before, start to go around on the right.
Guy in the fusion must have realized fuel at the Valero was $.02 cheaper than Citgo, so without signaling he immediately breaks left, forcing me to punch the gas and go around him partially in the Valero parking lot.
I get past him, and in my rearview I see the dumbass sitting in the lane like a stick in the mud, probably wondering where the hell I came from. Now I realized my mistake, had I been a little more patient I could have avoided the whole mess.
Still doesn’t change the fact the guy was a dumbass though.
