Public Service Announcement

When you come to a stop at a red light and you are the first in line, please be sure you pull far enough up to trip the light. Yes, some lights are actually trip lights. That means that if you don't trip them, you will never get the green. In fact, many stoplights in our city function this way. So Pull! Up!

And, if by chance, you forget to pull up to a reasonable position and you have to sit through an extra cycle, please pay attention and take into consideration that you are responsible being at the front of the line. There should never be an occasion where the light cycles 3! or 4! times before you figure out that you are an Ass!, and are making many people late to work.

Pull! Up! you freakin' moron. Trip the freakin' light already.

And if you are the next car in line when this occurs, I am holding you personally responsible for not climbing in their trunk or honking or doing something else to bring it to their attention that they need to Pull! Up!. Therefore you are also an Ass!

End of message.

Has the beet-red blush of rage drained from your face restoring the native paleness yet? Deep breath!

I hate hate hate being late, or worrying about being late. It totally sucks.

I've tried to aducate people to pull up too!!! And they get mad at me for mentioning it. Apparently, they would rather wallow in their stupidity and hatefulness.

I hate being late too. All the more so when it's because of someone else's sheer stupidity.

Maybe that should be hateableness

I've gotten stuck at this same light on multiple occasions as a result of morons, but never for 4 cycles. That is beyond comprehension.
