Rules of the Road

Let’s take a break from the Mad Libs, shall we?  I have another rant about maniacs who drive cars.

Yield SignSo, there’s this adorable inverted triangular sign that you often see while out driving.  It’s white with a red border, and in the middle is this interesting word: YIELD.  I wonder if you maniacs know what that means.  No?  Well, I’ll tell you.

It means that you should NOT cut me off when I’m coming down the highway at 55 miles per hour.  It means that you should wait your turn to enter the flow of traffic.  It means… wait for it… YIELD to oncoming traffic.

So will you people just stop trying to hurt me and my fabulous car?  Because if I hit you, it will be your fault, and your insurance company will buy me a new car.

Think about that.
