I'm Not the Only Platinum Blonde Around These Parts

This is a repost of a Facebook post I did on August 31, 2015.  Enjoy!

Quick lunch at a drive through today. Sat behind a car with a window sticker which read "I'm A Better Driver Than You." Didn't phase me until...
I pulled around the corner after ordering, and it's (sorta) at the window. About 5 feet out. Stopped catty-whompus. The driver -- out of the car, standing at the window with money in hand. "MmmHmm" I nodded, admitting that yes, indeed, she is a far superior driver (as I perfectly lined my SUV up with the window, and didn't have to reach far to pay. I'm a snob.)
I sat at the window in awe, though, as she pulled out into the street, and sat at the red light... LEFT OF THE DOUBLE YELLOW LINES. No joke. A car was waiting for her to move out of the way so that they could turn onto the street, but she wasn't having anything of it.
So, being the helpful person I am, I pulled up to the red light on her passenger side, and motioned for them (she had an adult passenger and a toddler in the car) to roll the window down, which she did. I let her know that she's on the wrong side of the road, to which her passenger said, "Yea, we figured that out," then sat there longer. Finally, her passenger told her she needed to move, and they backed up into the parking lot of the fast-food joint they just left.
Lessons I learned:
1) Don't believe every "braggart" bumper sticker you see. 
2) Always have your phone handy, ready with the "camera" active -- it would have been an AWESOME photo to have, with the sticker and all,..,.
At any rate, no one was injured, and I got a good chuckle out of the whole escapade...
