This morning, someone wished me a happy Thanksgiving and admonished me to not eat too much turkey. Aren’t those two things mutually exclusive? In order to have a happy Thanksgiving, don’t you have to eat too much turkey, or too much of something anyway? Glutton that I am, I plan to eat too much turkey and too much pumpkin pie as well.
- Why do so many people these days stop so far behind where they’re supposed to stop at traffic signals? Don’t they know that a lot of traffic signals have sensors under the pavement and if nobody passes over the sensor the light won’t change?
- If there’s a liquidity crisis in this country, shouldn’t I be receiving fewer credit card offers in the mail?
I’m beginning to think that traffic officials in New Jersey deliberately abandoned the left turn, rather than never discovering it in the first place. Yesterday, I saw someone make a U-turn on a major New York State route (six traffic lanes, turn lanes in each direction and a center divider), from the middle lane, with the left turn signal red! Is going around the block a felony? I only ask because I know that was at least three traffic violations.
