Why am I surprised???

Ok, I really don't know why I was surprised by this today, but I was. People just never cease to amaze me...

Picture this...You're driving home on a two lane road. You need to make a left hand turn either into a parking lot, a side street, whatever. Now, there isn't one of those handy dandy little 'extend-a-lanes' on your right side, but people don't hesitate to pass you on the right. Here's what kind of surprised on my way home from work, I was stopped in because someone was turning left. I heard a siren coming from behind...well, I couldn't tell at first where it was coming from, but then saw the people heading the opposite direction starting to pull off to the side, then saw the ambulance. So tell me why half the people in my lane didn't even TRY to get over to the right to get out of the way of an ambulance??? Are they in such a hurry that they can't wait to go around you when you're making a TURN, but they can't get the heck out of the way when there's an EMERGENCY???
