Dear Fellow Americans,

Let's all do our part to keep everyone SANE and frazzle-free this Holiday season.

1. If it says EXIT - don't walk in it.

2. If it says ENTER - don't walk out it.

3. Those white lines on each side of your parking space are NOT a mere
suggestion - stay between them.

Please feel free to add any suggestions for the sanity of all...

Glad I use public transit; I've forgotten what road rage is! Be safe out there, everyone!

3A. And those white striped lanes on the road? One lane per vehicle, please.

4. The left lane on a multi-lane highway is the passing lane, not the "drive the same speed as the vehicles to your right and don't worry about all those cars/buses stacked up behind you" lane.

5. If you're going to jay-walk at night, PLEASE don't wear all dark clothing.

Whew! That felt good!

My 2 cents

Parking lots are not free range for vehicles. There are rows for a reason, stay in them!

1. The arrows in the parking lanes mean something....don't go up the down or down the up!
2. So one or two over the 20 item limit is one thing....15 or 20 over the limit is another!
3. If you're sick, please stay home. I understand you need your vacation time for the holidays, but I don't want your bug over the holidays either!
4. And finally.....please don't park your cart/buggy in the middle of the aisle in the grocery store. Be courteous and pull over to the side so others can get by you!

Wow, I do feel better now.....

Those diagonal lined spaces next to the handicapped parking spots are not parking spots. Leave them clear so people in lift vans can put down the ramp and exit. That goes for all including those with handicapped placards.

Get off your cell phone! In line, in the car, in the restaurant. Pay attention to. What is going on around you!

Except that doesn't work as well on a 2 lane road I follow the advice in the motorcycle handbook which suggests slowing down if you are being tailgated. The closer you get, the slower I'll go.

If you have a yield sign, yield. It doesn't matter that the light is green and oncoming traffic is turning Left while you are turning right. If you have a yield sign, youdo not have the right of way.

Those diagonal lines through a parking space next to a handicap spot is NOT a parking space. There is no way to let the ramp out for the wheelchair if a car is in that spot.

If you take a refrigerator item or freezer item and change your mind, don't just stuff it in a random aisle to spoil.

Please be prepared tp pay for your items at the register, it should never be a surprise that this is coming. Have your card or cash ready like the rest of us.

Don't park in the handicap spot at Starbucks or Dunks cuz your " just running in" , so is everyone else. Those spots are for people who need them and have a placard to prove it.

I understand you are trying to find a parking space in a completely full lot, but if you don't give me enough room to reverse out of my space before you pounce on it, I will just sit there until you stop blocking me!

Remove the snow from your front windshield before you drive.
