Blinker And You’ll Miss It

, , , , | Right | February 8, 2019

(There’s a lot of construction near our store, and to head north, there’s a lot of zig zags to get where the drivers need to be. I get a call from corporate about a complaint that’s on the line.)

Caller: “Your driver is awful!”

Corporate: “What’s the problem? I have the truck pulled up and the manager on the line.”

Caller: “She’s abusing the blinker!”

Me: “Huh?”

Caller: “She keeps using her blinker! All the time!”

Corporate: “So, your issue is the driver is using the blinker? Is she using it prior to turns or lane changes?”

Caller: “Yeah, but there’s no need to use the blinker! She’s just being annoying!”

Corporate: “Ma’am, our drivers are obligated to follow all local, state, and federal traffic laws.”

Caller: “There’s no need to use the blinker!”

Me: *hearing road noise* “Ma’am, are you driving right now?”

Caller: “Of course, you f****** moron! How else can I see your idiot driver?”

Me: “Ma’am, in [Location], it’s illegal to use a cellular phone while operating a motor vehicle.”

Caller: “F*** you! Of course you defend your s***ty driver!” *hangs up*

Me: “So, the issue was [Driver] was following the law and [Caller] wasn’t?”

Corporate: “Yeah, I’m not writing this one up.”
