So I mentioned how, last week, I was in an accident. I didn’t talk much about it, because of pending yadda yadda, but BASICALLY, it amounts to the other driver driving erratically and not using a signal.
I’ve noticed this A LOT lately. Look, I understand that if you’re alone on a deserted road in the middle of the night, maybe a turn signal isn’t warranted. But you know? If you’re in a heavily populated area with tons of cars around, is it so much trouble to move your left hand six inches?
I think it stems to a greater problem with our generation as a whole: this sense of entitlement. I’m going to go there, and I shouldn’t HAVE to tell you about it. Because it’s my god-given right. But see, it’s NOT. That’s why turn signals aren’t options on cars. They’re REQUIRED BY LAW.
So if you decide to make ANY resolutions on being a better person in the near future, maybe this isn’t such a bad place to start: use your turn signal.
(If for no other reason than it covers your ass in an accident.)
