Pet Peeve: Use your blinkers, dammit!
The American driving public's seeming lack of knowledge of the blinker mechanism in their automobiles drives me crazy! Why is it that folks in their automobiles are unable to use their blinkers to give the other drivers on the road a "heads up" as to their intentions to turn? I hit the brakes eight times this week to avoid either getting hit by or hitting someone who turned in front of me but did not feel the need to signal their intentions with their blinkers. The auto manufacturers have included working blinkers on their products for decades now....don'tcha think it's about time y'all learned how to use the damn things?!?!
So, little ones, my new rule of the road is: If you aren't smart enough to use the blinkers in your automobile, then you are not smart enough to drive at all....so start walkin'.
