The semi or the cel phone

Ok, the winner last week was Space is deep, you are not.

This week is a little closer to home. Real close actually ...

I am about a mile from home heading to work. Coming up is an exit and a entrance onto the highway. Behind me are several cars a half mile or more back. In front of me is a semi. There are 3 vehicles coming down the entrance ramp, two cars and an SUV in the lead. I back off a little to give the semi some room to move over so he dosn't drive any cars into the ditch, assuming they are not bright enough to slow down some or speed up a lot. The back two cars slow down. The front SUV keeps going. The semi keeps going until finally the SUV runs right onto the shoulder.

Now normally I would feel bad for the driver of the SUV, being driven off the road. But when I came up alongside her I see why she had driven in such a clueless manner. She was chatting away cheerfully on her cel phone.

So, who wins. The semi who wouldn't move, or the dingbat who wouldn't watch what was going on?
