husband's niece called me earlier this evening. She and her boyfriend were out running errands (fortunately without the baby) and boyfriend's car died. I went to where they were and parked behind them with my flashers on and the car still running so we could keep warm. (boyfriend's car doesn't have heat) The car died sitting at a light and more or less in the right turn lane. I pulled up behind it as the flashers on it weren't working and I didn't want anyone smacking into it until it could be moved. I sat there for probably 20 minutes or so and I can't begin to tell you how many people pulled up and stopped behind me and then honked when I didn't move when the light turned green. I HAD MY FLASHERS ON! The heat didn't do us much good since I was constantly rolling my window down to wave people around us. I HAD MY FLASHERS ON and a good 70% of the people had no clue. It's a good thing it was winter and people's car windows were up because I was in a not so great mood anyway and the stupidity of people always irks me...so....I um...mentioned that Frog Uncle's family just a teeensy bit. (they are all morons, just for the record ) boyfriend had called his cousin to come help him either start the car or get it moved so when he got there, I drove around the block and came back. This time though when I parked behind them, I was a bit farther back and OFF THE ROAD! Seriously....the white line was to my left. I no sooner stopped the car and turned my FLASHERS ON (again) when someone stopped behind me. OFF THE ROAD. Granted, it was dark, the weather wasn't the greatest but still....the white line in that area is very visible and I HAD MY FLASHERS ON!!! I know this because I got out of the car TWICE to make sure they were both working. At first I thought that maybe the left one was burnt out since I was in the right turn lane but no. Everything was working just fine. Do people not know what flashers are anymore? Or are they just that incredibly stupid???? I would have understood a bit better if everyone had been teenagers and maybe didn't make the connection but nope...I watched as they (finally) drove around me. The ages ran across the board from teens to the elderly and everything in between. People just scare me sometimes with their brilliance.
