We are human. We wage war, we lie, we cheat, we steal, we don't always tip well. We're petty, we're moody, we're unreliable, we're self-serving, we're spiteful. On the road we're angry, we're texting, we're cutting people off, and yelling obscenities. But somehow, out of somewhere, we all got together and decided it was us versus the police.
I don't know how or why flashing your headlights at an oncoming car became the universal sign for, "There's a copy ahead, hiding, trying to catch you speeding. As your fellow motorist, I've decided to alert you to this upcoming entrapment. Good day."
So, thanks to the guy who flashed his headlights at me on my way back to the office today. I salute you.
