Dear “Lady” who almost broadsided me today.
The signs are there for direction, safety, important things happening right now. They aren’t just to add a splash of color to the roadside.
Yes, please do speed up and merge safely; that’s appreciated.
I know you could see me. I don’t know where you were hurrying to. But I’ll bet it wasn’t worth my life.
Also, I can guarantee you in the battle between metal truck and plastic minivan; I know who would have been coming out to the better.
And for the love of God, don’t sit at a stoplight with traffic blocking you in screaming and cursing at a complete stranger. There’s no strategic advantage. At the best of times, it’s a bad idea. Nowadays, it’s the absolute worse thing to do.
If I were a “bad” guy, I could have done you serious harm. You had no way out of your position.
But I’m not. You’re lucky it was me.
Also, way to speak in front of your two kids in the back.
On the inside of your car, these turn signals usually appear as green arrows facing the direction of the intended turn. On most cars, the turn signal lever is located to the left of the steering wheel. Shifting the lever up indicates a right turn and shifting it down indicates a left turn.
And here’s a neat trick. On the outside of your vehicle, some lights indicate which way you intend to go so that the rest of us won’t be ignorant of your actions and not just ignorant like you.
I’ll let you figure out the speed limit signs. Here’s a hint. They aren’t suggestions.
That’s it. That’s the post.
