Stopped at a red light with cars behind me, heading to a single-lane on-ramp at the right ~100ft away...
A man in a Toyota Corolla on my left rolled his passenger side window down and asked me, "Is that car of yours fast?"
I smiled and said, "It's okay."
"Well...", he said. "Could you let me cut in front of you 'coz I'm heading for the freeway and I'm sure I won't be able to if I didn't tell you."
Another smile and said, "Sure, no problem."
I thought, it must be the "hood scoop effect" on people.
