the secret life of driving habitsPosted: 2007/07/15
i get intrigued by what people or their rides tell about themselves when you see their turn signals flashing. i’d appreciate your thoughts.
intermittent turn signal flash: “i’ve got a cool turn signal”
one turn signal flash: “i’m a smooth driver, just wanted to let you know that i’m passing by”
fast signal flash: “i’m a racer and i want to race with you”
no signal: “bah, the car i overtook will understand” -or- “take this, moth…”
turn signal flashing for the last minute and driver still couldn’t merge: “got a lot of thoughts in my head right now” -or- “you’re still tailgaiting me!”
turn signal still flashing after merging lanes: “i didn’t notice the turn signal still blinking”
turn signal in red: “that’s my brake, idiot. backoff!”
now how about hand-on-wheel reading?
both hands on opposite sides of the wheel: student driver -or- aarp candidate
both hands on upper wheel: anxious
right hand on lower wheel: relaxed with head resting all the way past the other half of the ride
palm of right hand underneath upper wheel with left hand crossing it: about to make a huge turn, u-wie -or- threatening to overturn the ride
left hand on arm rest: long-distance driver -or- family man
left hand on upper wheel: racer
left hand on upper wheel with right hand on cheek: gangsta
right hand on upper left wheel: gangsta with hip-hop video influence
right hand on upper wheel: trying to create a wall between co-pilot -or- the left hand sticking out the window
no hands: soccer mom multi-tasking -or- kid on merry-go-round
the brother in l.a. who didn’t mind dropping his younger sisters off gets a check from the kind mailman who got away with a warning from an understanding california highway patrol officer who got a call from the hospital stating that his wife was going to be ok before he flies out to meet her in san francisco after giving birth according to the physician in ucsf who got promoted to director by the incumbent head because the latter and her husband in seattle could finally retire in their vacation island when their portfolio manager from washington dc announced the good news that morning after he found a way to beat the market from a nyse stockbroker on a train during rush hour gave him the tip after realizing that he had a great recommendation and promotion from his boss in manhattan after his boss got saved by the messenger outside from being hit by a truck at the crosswalk because the messenger woke up happy earlier that day realizing that his now girlfriend was going to live with him in new jersey.
