I might be a jerk driver

My comfortable following distance for other cars is a few seconds worth (varies depending on speed, blah blah blah)... but I rarely ever strive for it.

Instead, I strive for being close enough that other cars would be uncomfortable merging in front of me. If they do merge in front of me, they're obviously assholes.

Why would I do this? I do it because I get annoyed easily. If I were following car A comfortably, and car B merged into the nice open area between us, then I have to slow down not just to a comfortable space from car B, but even more so that he can be at his comfort level from car A. And I hate slowing down. It wastes my gas and my time.

Yeah, I'm probably a jerk.
