A traffic observation

Why is it that when you're in traffic in your car, trying to make a left-hand turn, no one will give you an opening except the very last car in line, who somehow hasn't looked in his rearview mirror to realize you can take that turn as soon as he goes by? Of course you have to be grateful, but it seems such a wasted gesture.

Conversely, why is it that when you're the last car in line, with clear sailing behind you, some idiot is going to cut in right in front of you, causing you to slam on your brakes? And he seems to have no idea of what he's done, mind a million miles away, hurrying and getting one whole car length ahead of you?
