Some work is being done where Nevada intersects with Hwy 2. This is the view on my commute home.The traffic barrels on the left are blocking my path. I surveyed this when I stopped at the red light on Thursday evening and decided I could cut through the construction area since it was clear and there was no right-turning traffic coming from Nevada. As I was thinking this over, the driver in the truck next to me spoke up.
Him: "What do you want to do about the barrels?"
Me: "I don't see anything in my way on the right so I'll go that way."
Him: "Okay, but if you want to go left, I can hold off and let you go first."
Me: "That's very nice. Thank you very much."
In my experience, any interaction with a vehicle driver is usually unpleasant. Here's a driver I'm going to remember in a good way, unlike that one guy.
