I can be guilty of the left lane thing. I don't like to go too far over the speed limit but I sure don't want to stay in the right lane doing 5 or 10 under either. So I'll cruise along in the left lane as long as I'm passing people, or am about to pass them. But I DO get itchy when I've been next to someone for more than a few minutes, and I'll accelerate to get past them. THEN it's time to pull into the right lane.
It was you! Ok in nice guy argument fashion, if everyone were to only use the left lane for passing the guys who want to go faster would not be jerky and frustrated (road rage) they would just be able to sail on through (and maybe get pulled over) you see by staying in the left lane while not passing you are impeding the flow of traffic. Doesn't sound like it is a big deal in your case but when old man Smithers, goes 50 next to a semi for a half an hour that can really mess up your 3 hour drive!
Totally agree on being on time. If I am not 30 mins early I feel like I am late. I have always been the one who gets up 3 hours before I need to be at work and arrives 45 minutes early and then forgets to punch in cause you aren't allowed to punch in early or something...
What bushes my go-press? It's the idiot that hung the sign on my truck that says "cut in front of me and slow down!" I can't find it myself, but it has to be there, cause I can't take a trip without some idiot sliding over and just missing my bumper, then slowing down.
