    Don’t know if it’s exactly what you’re talking about but it seems like it’s in the same vein…

    One time I pulled up to an intersection in the middle lane of a three-lane road. My lane goes straight only; the left lane turns left and the right lane goes straight or right. I want to go straight and there’s nobody in the right lane, but I figure somebody might want to turn right on red so I stick to the middle lane (where there are several cars). Right after I come to a stop, a guy with a Mensa sticker on his car zooms up in the right lane with no turn signal on; sure enough, several cars with their right turn signals on follow him. They can’t turn right on red because Mensa’s not only going straight but wants to zoom ahead of everybody in my lane, which, of course, he does. I remember thinking, “that guy thinks he’s smarter than everyone else, but really, he’s just an asshole.”

  2. So I fly alot now for my job, and I pretty much skip the “expert” lane. Invariably, there will be people in that line, that despite not flying since 1973, feel they are experts in current procedures. Yes you cannot take weapons. You have to put your fluids in a bag.

    These are the people that cause airlines to still announce that smoking isn’t allowed on airplanes 20 years after it was banned.

    The TSA aren’t angels, but I totally agree with you that in this case they are justified.

    This is exactly the type of thing I am talking about. I thought I was the only one who avoided the right lane when I wasn’t turning right. Glad to hear others do too! (I love th fact that he hada Mensa sticker on his car!)
