Okay here's a question. I was driving home today when I suddenly found myself alongside a funeral procession. They were in the left lane, I was in the right. It was not a split second deal, we were beside each other for a good five or six miles. I know that funeral processions get the right of way with regards to red lights, turns, etc. but what is the protocol for passing one? Do you pass? Or do you hang back behind/beside them? I was going slowly, though a little bit faster than them and when I suddenly was right next to the hearse I found that to be a bit uncomfortable and had to slow down again. What's the etiquette? In almost 14 years of driving, I don't think I've ever had this come up for me and I don't remember driver's ed going over this particular scenario.

i believe you're supposed to pull over and let them pass then continue...but not sure on a multi lane road if its the same or not

Yeah, that was the problem, pulling over to let them pass wasn't going to work because the minute you got back out on the road you were going to catch up to them again. So then you'd have to do it all over again.

It is awesome to read your posts in Google translator. I do not need it but sometimes I do it.

The proper etiquette would be to go slower than the hearse. You don't pass a funeral procession ever.

I'm curious what kind of company E-Mails you your store-located results in the year 2010.

Makes me want to go back to AOL 3.4, for old times sake

AOL is for losers, n00bs, and fools. CompuServe was where it was at.

Shouldn't Faygo be available in every dollar store in the land?

Was that before or after AOL bought CompuServe?
I was on AOL at 1200 bauds when it was a DOS program.
The real fools were the people who ran CompuServe into irrelevancy, otherwise, Cbus would have been the center of the internet universe.

I did technical support at Compuserve in 96-97, nothing like having 2 free accounts in the pay per minute years! I still hear modem tones and have modem init strings burned into memory

I still have AOL install disks -- floppies. 'Cause you never know.

Gaming in the '90s and being charged by the hour was exciting. But, no matter how high the bill got, I could always point at my older brother as an example of how bad things could really get. You're lucky, BJN. I was in heaven when AOL offered a monthly/yearly fee.

I actually miss dial-up because it was more impressive to hear it connecting. On the other hand, since I basically spent all night online, the inevitable disconnects resulted in very noisy reconnects. I always tried to smother the sound somehow. It never worked.

I think I dropped AOL for good around 2001, and never looked back. I sometimes depress myself by reading comments on their news sites. "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." Alas, I think AOL's community is probably pretty representative of actual society.

Meemoooriiiieees.

Is there any way...at all...to smack some sense into a friend's head that the person she's dating is full of it & she's only torturing herself?

This has been going on for almost a year now & she came to me for advice from a guy's point of view when things started getting iffy. I've given her my advice, especially seeing that, watching from afar, he's making it brutally obvious that he either has no idea what he wants or is playing her (case in point, a "meeting with an old professor" at 9pm on a Friday night instead of going out with her). It seems like she's whipped as hell & it's gone in one ear and out the other. I thought this was over with seeing as she hadn't mentioned it since May...that is, until last night.

The things we do for friends...

Quick answer: no.

She asked for your advice, you gave it, she either takes it or she doesn't. All you can do now is be happy for her if it works out or be supportive if it doesn't.

Take it from someone in a similar age range: Whatever you do, don't say anything too critical.

99% of the time people ask you for advice, they've already got their mind made up and are only looking for you to validate their opinion. This is especially true of these situations. As good of a friend as she may be, she's prob. not going to listen to you.

Best to not emotionally invest yourself in the situation.
