Stop Signs

Stop sign
Tuesday, September 15, 2015
Today I am grateful for stop signs. For those of you out there unenlightened allow me to help you out.

If you are driving or riding on any type of vehicle, such as a truck, car, motorcycle, bike, skateboard, or roller skates and you get to a corner that has a large, red, octagonal sign with the word S-T-O-P on it in white letters, that means you have to S-T-O-P right there so you’re not killed or so you don’t kill someone else. Like me.

You are not supposed to float into the middle of the intersection, while chatting on the phone to the referee who called your baby out after twenty-two swings at the bat, and THEN decide to stop your car. You’re also not allowed to shake said cell phone in my face as though I was the idiot, when it is clear that you hold that title honestly.

It’s very simple. It’s not rocket science. And complying with this little annoyance is vital to life. Mine! And yours. If you could ever get off of the phone long enough to realize you really have a life. . .even without the appendage dangling from your fingers. STOP. Now that wasn’t so hard, was it!?

    And how about red lights and then right turn? I always thought you had to come to a complete stop for 3 seconds before proceeding. We saw a person sail through the red on a right turn as we were approaching the intersection on our green. We were very glad to know we weren’t very close to the corner when this occurred. Hollywood stops are not good. I’m right there with you.
