Default Re: Trivial things that amuse you

So I'm driving down this sort of boring stretch of road today, and there's an SUV in front of me with a bumpersticker that says, "Suck it up, Buttercup," except all caps, really big. And that's the only sticker, too, so it wasn't one of those things where someone gets every mildly amusing sticker they see and puts it on their car. This was a sentiment so important to this person that she found it necessary to broadcast it to everyone who saw her on the road. Not directed to anyone in particular, really, unless "Buttercup" counts, which it doesn't. This is the main thing this woman wanted to say to the world.

"Huh," I thought to myself.

And then, the greatest thing happened. She ended up in a turn only lane when she wanted to go straight. This is a boring stretch of road, but it's pretty busy at this point. And rather than, oh, say, sucking it up, accepting that she made a mistake, and suffering the mild inconvenience of making the unwanted turn and then getting reoriented and back in the direction she meant to go, she stopped in the middle of the road. Just stopped in 40MPHish traffic, backed up everyone else in her lane, put her turn signal on (I think), and wedged her way into the lane she wanted to be in, subsequently backing them up as well and making a bunch of people miss their green lights.
