I know. It’s an oxymoron. Prius drivers are almost always Clovers.
But not because of the car.
Because of how they drive.
And not because they drive slowly.
The problem is using your car to force others to also drive slowly. By refusing to yield when you are driving slowly. That’s what defines a Clover.
Like the guy in this video. I got caught behind him on the Blue Ridge Parkway – where the speed limit is 45 but this Clover was trolling along at 32-ish.
That, by itself, wasn’t objectionable. But the Clover rolled by three overlooks/turn-offs. He had to have seen them. And also had to have seen the cars (including me) stacked up behind him, while he took his time enjoying the scenery.
Mark that. His time.
The time of the people caught behind him, obliged to waste their time because of Clover, didn’t matter to Clover. A person with any regard for other people would have pulled off, to let the other cars by. This is basic etiquette when you are driving slower than other cars, impeding them – but driving well below the posted speed limit.
But Clovers only care about themselves. Their time. Their convenience. What they want. Which they don’t mind imposing on other people.
And that is what makes a Clover a Clover!
We are within a hair of making it out of the red for the month; thanks to all who’ve chipped in!
Apparently, some of you have been having problems with posting comments or even registering as users. I have no idea why.

We still need tech support. I’m out of my depth when it comes to “code” and computer stuff. I am terrified about touching anything. If we could get the site earning a bit more money, hiring a tech guy (or gal) becomes feasible. It would be a godsend to me and, I think, a help to all of us. So, please take that into account when mulling over sending in a few bucks. I am doing everything I know how to do, but I am just one guy and not a computer guy.
Will you help us?
