    The ones I see almost every day are the guys that switch into the merging lane, speed up to the front, and merge back into traffic. Usually see it on Deerfoot north at 32nd. People in the far right lane "merge" into the turn lane and try and get to the front, then merge back. I never let them back in, at least I try.

    Regardless of how you feel about this form of zipper merging, their behaviour is not illegal however, what you describe as "never letting them back in" and trying to prevent a merge is actually illegal in Alberta:

    A person driving a vehicle on a highway where the highway is
    marked by a “merging traffic” sign near the intersection of another
    highway marked by a “merge” sign shall take all reasonable
    precautions to allow a merging vehicle to enter in safety onto the
    highway on which the merging is to take place.


    Regardless of merge sign:

    a person driving a vehicle that is being overtaken by another vehicle
    (a) shall give way to the right in favour of the overtaking
    vehicle, and
    (b) shall not increase the speed of the overtaken vehicle until
    the overtaken vehicle is completely passed by the
    overtaking vehicle.

    I have no problem with zipper merging. What my beef is is the guys turning from the regular deerfoot lane into the merge lane and then moving to the front and then merging back onto deerfoot.

    My gripe is with people that get into the exit lane for Mcknight, and then stop to get back into traffic, while I'm stuck behind them trying to exit onto Mcknight.

    That's why I just say I have a 4" dick and lift weights to make up for it.

    Someone dig up the thread with the member who didn't let a guy in and then a road rage related rear ender followed.
    He tried to claim it was a "brake check" but we had to check him.

    Yea there's probably 50 of those vs 1 person who actually started in that lane and planned their merge poorly (i.e. 50 year old Chinese woman going 10 trying to merge into 50kph traffic in her champagne coloured Camry/RX350)

    Online chat support where the rep is helping a few people at a time so it's 3-5 minutes between each response.
    Spend 5 minutes waiting for a response and the instant I get called away or someone walks into my office, they finally reply then close the chat after 3 minutes due to inactivity.

    Fraction measurements. Like fuck, I don't want to hear about a tool that "six and one eighth of an inch outside diameter." Give me 6.125" OD all day baby.

    Imperial Measurements. Hard to have a high horse about standards when you quote inches and feet.

    I think my customers in Oklahoma would literally catch fire if I quoted in millimeters.

    The Today() macro feature in Excel. Fuck off. Now every time I open it the file gets modified needlessly and the day entering the date into an electronic file I'm working on is a big enough problem that I need a macro for it means I'm about to be replaced and better go start lifting heavy boxes, again.
