One thing (ok, one of the MANY things) that really pisses me off is that apparently some dealership somewhere is selling cars where turn signals are an option.
There must be one in every town because I seem to ALWAYS be behind the guy that is too cheap to purchase those pesky optional indicators.
Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing I love more than the thrill of having someone not indicate and cut across 2 lanes of traffic in front of me, sending people veering willy nilly. Who DOESN’T go to work in the morning hoping to have a near death experience? I find it makes the rest of the day seem so calm and uneventful.
What really gets me is that THEY got out of having to indicate which direction they are planning to turn and here I am LIKE A CHUMP, using my hand to flick this little switch back and forth, back and forth. It just reeks of effort really.
The indicator challenged get to drive all over town in their vehicles of impending death and we, the pro-indicator crowd (forgive me if that term is too politically charged) are left to try to use our Sherlockian (that has GOT to be a word right?) powers of deduction to avoid being crushed by your mobile death trap.
So for all the drivers out there that are not blessed with the power to foresee the future or the ability to read your mind at such distances or speeds…
