    •  Had a similar incident last month crossing (6+ / 0-)

      a major bridge here.

      I'm not one to refuse merging traffic access to the lane in front of me.  What's the point?  So you get home six feet later...  So I let a few cars in ahead of me (to the great consternation of the schmuck behind me).

      When I got to the tollbooth, the guy in it told me the truck in front of me (I can't even remember if I let him in or not) paid for me.  I was so shocked it never occurred to me, but next time I'll hand over my money anyway, and tell the toll-taker it's for the guy behind me... and ask him to suggest they pass it on, too.

      Things like that just leave you smiling for days.  :)

        I'm with you, I let people in when it's merging traffic... life's too
        short and what's the big deal anyway.  And you're right, it
        does leave you smiling for days :)  hugs Yasuragi...
