So, coming out of Redstone there's a big 4-way stop to turn on to a two lane road. The Redstone side (where we usually come out of) turns right on to the road, while the Skyview side turns left.

My understanding of the rules of the road is that we should turn into the right lane (duh) and that the Skyview people should turn into the left lane. Unless it was a bus, which was legally allowed to turn into the right lane on the left turn. This way, since it is a congested 4-way, both sides making turns can basically be going at the same time (if there is no one else coming in any other direction we need to wait for). This is correct, right? If someone turning left turned into the right far lane, that is illegal, right?

Correct. You have to turn into the lane closest to the curb.

Yup, you are correct. Anyone that turns into the far lane is an a-hole

Okay, good. Just wanted to validate my gear grinder after some recent obvious misfires in this thread. Because tons of people turn into the far lane there and it grinds my gears!

RGMG too! And a related one, if I need to make a right turn immediately after a left turn, like to enter a parking lot or something, I still turn into the close lane, then make a lane change, then make my turn into the parking lot. If someone behind me needs to get into the same parking lot, but turns into the far lane then speeds up a bit, that person can eat a buffet of dicks.

This jerkface holding up the line whilst I'm trying to get poke for dinner. C'mon buddy, order your food and move it. These aren't life or death decisions, just fish and toppings.

I hope he gets a tapeworm.

Pulled up to a 4 way stop sign standoff between two goofballs who couldn't decide who stopped first. As I pulled up they had already been stopped for a good 5 seconds each and the one goofball starts flailing his hands for me to go...

Holy crap people it's not rocket science. Just go if you get their first and definitely don't wave someone through trying to be nice if they get there after you by a good 5 seconds.

So I'm in Europe and was heading to Berlin today from Katowice, Poland. We were at the bus stop 30 mins before it was due to depart, and it never showed up! Thought we might have had the wrong bus address, but other drivers and the info desk confirmed it was the right stop. Unfortunately I know like 4 polish words so getting a clear explanation didn't happen. That RGMG we missed the 6 hour bus trip and had to end up paying for and taking a 9 hrs train ride.

Only to have this happen!!

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/390568...uation-latest/

As we were travelling through a small town, they suddenly stopped the train, told us to leave all our belonging behind, and get behind a big school across the street.

Lets just say it took about a hundred cops and almost 7 hours to search each and every piece of luggage by dog on the train before they finally let us back on.

As I type this, its about 4am. Almost every single hotel in Berlin is sold out. I managed to find a place that will let us check in whenever we get there in exchange for 2 nights pay (

What a day. And all because the stupid polskibus never showed up. Damn you polskibus. Damn you to hell
