on a related note, a corolla was switching lanes back and forth on a big local street leading to the freeway but wasn't getting any farther ahead of me. he ended up being right behind me going onto the freeway. on the onramp, i smashed the gas and left him in teh dust.
once at freeway speed, i slowed down. but i think i pissed him off, as he decided to cut me off while passing me on the freeway only to have to slow down and move back to the right lane again to take a freeway interchange.
