Look at me in my fancy duds. Nothing says haute couture like a red corduroy sport jacket. I hear you can find them in all the finest department stores these days. Too bad I didn't have the matching plaid pants; otherwise, I'd be unstoppable. Now look behind us. See that unusual looking plant? My teenage brother planted that. Kinda strange for a teenager to be interested in horticulture, wouldn't you say? Especially in Southern California. That's what my parents thought, anyway.

Drivers of automobiles need to stop trying to be so polite and stick to the rules of the road. You've all witnessed the scenario where a driver in the left lane of a double-lane, two-way road yields to an oncoming vehicle turning left in front of them. The "courteous" driver feels good about yielding the right-of-way, but completely disregards the fact that there is a right lane of traffic. Oftentimes the "courteous" driver's car obstructs the view of other drivers and causes an accident. Next time a "courteous" driver yields the right-of-way in this kind of situation, don't take the bait. Just because they yield doesn't mean they can control what other drivers are going to do.
