Fast lane

The morning commute can be a real drag for some people. I don't mind the drive and I certainly enjoy the ride when the weather is biker friendly. If I had to pick one thing that really cheeses me off it's the passing lane about six miles into my ride.
Why is it that so many people don't know how to act when there is a passing lane?  There's a sign posted that tells you how to proceed but why bother reading it. "SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT".  It's just ridiculous the way some people drive. If you were moving at 53 mpg before entering the passing zone, why the he'll would you speed up to 60+ after moving to the right? Now everyone that wanted to push you out of the way before the passing zone is enjoying a normal flow of traffic until you exit the passing zone and SLOW BACK DOWN TO 53!? What's the freakin problem?

The other annoying driver is the one that stays in the fast lane and just paces the car that moved over. HELLO! OTHERS! You have to know we want to pass. We're all bunched up behind you. Or maybe you don't know because you think mirrors are just for putting on makeup or picking your nose. Ok, its not just rhe guys. Some of the gals are also guilty of not using their mirrors.
And how about the driver that passes at the last minute forcing the passee to ride the gravel, unable to merge. What a dick. Don't be a dick.
