I was out for a drive early Sunday morning when – like a spoonful of crap in a gallon of ice cream – a Clover ruined everything.
It was a guy in an old truck with a mower in the back. Understandably, he was driving slowly. A truck with lawn equipment in the back is not the hot ticket for hustling through the apexes. Not so understandably, Clover would not pull over for the handful of seconds it would have taken to let the three cars stacked up behind him get past.
This is an example of the Clover Mindset.
Their time matters (can’t be bothered to briefly pull off, to let faster-moving traffic get past) but your time doesn’t.
What’s the hurry? You should have left sooner!
But it’s not a question of Clover’s seconds vs. the other drivers’ minutes. It’s a simple question of road etiquette. If you are driving slower than the speed limit (and cars are stacking up behind you) the courteous thing to do is move over. Pull off onto the shoulder and wave the cars behind you by.
Clovers never do this.
And that’s what makes them Clovers!
PS: Some very good news… we’re making progress on the pie chart. Might just make it out of the hole, if we get another couple of decent days. Again, I’d like to thank those who stepped up. Your support is what makes this all possible!
