I'm a pretty good driver, I think. Very defensive. I always signal before turning at an intersection to give cars behind me time to slow down or change lanes. I also use hazard lights (aka flickers or flashers) when I'm slowing down to parallel park. This is my way of saying, "Hey, dude. Better go around me. Have a nice day."
During the last few months, several drivers have honked (at night!) as I was slowing down to grab a parking spot. The best was the older lady who honked and drove past me with a pained and angry look on her face. It could have been gas. But I think it was mostly chronic stupidity.
It's true that I graduated from Morty's driving school on Décarie. It's true that Morty was a pro with the white board and toy car. It's true Uli was a pleasure to drive with.
Yet I'm pretty sure the meaning of those flashy thingies at the back of the car was taught right across Quebec.
Why so many dumb ones?
