I have decided to start a blog segment called Take it from Tori to share my personal opinion about things. Whether it’s a good thing, a bad thing or just some random thing, I’ll be explaining how that thing makes me feel. And there you have it, I have just used the word “thing” 4 times in one sentence.
So for my first topic, I have chosen:
People who don’t use their blinker while driving.
It should be a habit, like putting your seatbelt on. When you know you need to switch lanes or make a turn, your left hand should automatically want to flip that little signal switcher rod up or down. I use my blinker even if I’m turning on a random side street in the middle of the night and I’m the only driver in sight.
The worst is when someone cuts you off without any warning (aka blinker usage). I mean, go ahead and cut me off if you absolutely must but PLEASE at least give me a little heads up before you do so.
Here’s a tip: when people cut you off and you feel like flipping them the bird, go ahead and give them a sarcastic thumbs up (and maybe even a smile) instead. It feels better when people think you’re being nice but you’re really saying, “go ahead, cut me off you big turd”. That way you won’t get into any road rage fist fights.
Be careful out there people, and don’t forget to use your blinker.
