When it’s not fair


I was driving home and was at a point where two lanes merged into one shortly after an intersection. The cars ahead of me nicely merged together like a zipper, well before the lane ended. I left space to allow the car slightly ahead of me in the other lane to merge into. That’s what you do, right? Well, he didn’t merge.

And my reviews are below. I’d love to know 2 things in the comments: Have you read these books? What did you think? What should I read next month?
