There is a neat little device that comes with all cars at no extra charge that has the potential of making driving much safer and more convenient for everyone. It is called a turn signal. The only drawback is that YOU HAVE TO USE THE BLEEDIN’ THING.
It seems that 1 out of 3 drivers do not. Why not? I am perplexed. It is not a newfangled device; it’s been around as long as I can remember. It is neither difficult nor in any way inconvenient to use. In fact, I am hard-pressed to think of any more effortless task than the flick of the finger to turn on the turn signal. What’s more, it will become habit in about a week of driving. You don’t even have to think to do it. It requires the brainpower involved in emitting flatulence.
But, since so many people either don’t use or misuse this clever tool, we can’t even trust those that do use it correctly. We never know if they are being reasonable adults with IQs above room temperature, or if they are in the 33% of drooling, butt-picking idiots who can barely navigate in shoes, much less motor vehicles.
I tend to not use gestures, since my middle finger is in cahoots with my trigger finger and that sort of influence could have fatal consequences.
Thank you. I’m all better now.
