The demoralizing effects of on-ramp stoplights

Is it just me, or do the stop lights at the on-ramps of freeways bring out the worst in humanity? The simple law abiders stay in the left lane, the natural lane to be in, while the opportunists swerve into the right lane, because the right lane always goes faster. The opportunists soon butt ahead those who have been patiently waiting in line, like rabbits speeding past the finish line while the turtles cough in their dust, doubting the doctrine of persistence and patience. These heartless on-ramps are like microcosms of everything unfair in the world, Worst of all, as long as they exist, I’m going to be in the right lane, hating the monster society has crafted me into.
