Selfish driving

I've come to the conclusion that I quit BEDA, because it's not for me. I tried, I get props for that, right?
I've also come to the conclusion that I dislike selfish drivers. That's what I've decided to term them: selfish drivers. Those who drive with no thought for other drivers, only with their own destination and timeline in consideration, are selfish drivers. Those who cut in and out of traffic, those who whip around people with no thought, they bother me. What really bothers me is when a third lane is open just for the intersection, it widens just before, and then narrows right after, and people sit there, not caring about the people behind who are in the lane because they want to turn, they only care about getting a few cars ahead. Is it really worth it to get two cars ahead? I just don't understand, and in my mind, it's selfish.
Now that I've gotten that rant out of the way, this week has been pretty crazy. Today has been nice though, we had an institute fireside type thing (called friday forum) and a member of the quorum of the seventy came and spoke, it was really amazing.
That's all for now, thanks for reading!

ooo yes, I know what turn you're talking about. We have one here that is sort of like that, only there aren't lines to specifically tell people. It is just understood that the ppl all the way on the right are turning. In fact, if you tried to drive straight you'd hit a fence, so... common sense... but people still get in there and sit there making it so everyone behind them can't turn. Then when it is time for them to go straight they panic and swerve over to the right lane cutting the other lane off and being super safe like that.
