Coming up to a stop at an intersection, I want to make a right-hand turn. There is a yield lane, but it is being blocked by an old-timer in a Volvo. After waiting for a while I see the Altima in front of the Volvo take the yield turn lane and proceed. This clears up an area where the Volvo could creep into and I could sneak into the right-hand yield lane. But now, the Volvo driver is clearly distracted by the wonders of NPR to even consider being nice to his fellow drivers. If only I could preempt that broadcast and say “The large automobile fore of your conveyance has vacated the premises and the automobile operator aft of you wishes to proceed with completing a right-hand turn. Please move forward.” Of course, in the heat of the moment it would probably sound more like GTFO.
