dear greek driver,
this is a letter I have been meaning to write to you for a while. Now, I finally feel ready and would like to clarify a few things for you if you don’t mind:
The traffic light has three colours. We all know and agree for what green stands for. Orange, on the other hand, is something which you seem to have understood the other way around. Slowly stopping your car is what is requested, not accelerating like driving a formula 1 car. Red means freeze, not pass if you are cool enough.
You are not actually smarter than everyone else. Therefore I would appreciate it if you could stay behind the first car waiting for the light to turn green and not squeeze yourself through two cars only to get ahead. Being the second, or God forbid, the third car is not the end of the world. Trust me.
The time it takes you to honk when the traffic light turns green is probably shorter than the time required for light to travel. You might consider giving the person in front of you the luxury of a second or two.
Parking spaces specifically designed for handicapped people do not translate into reserved parking spaces just for you, smartass. Walking something extremely long, like 10 meters, won’t actually harm you, on the contrary it will wake you up a bit and make you think.
Catching up on your phone with all your friends while driving is not only stupid but totally uncool. Same with drinking and driving. You are not actually the only person on the planet who can drink more than one drink and still drive safely. There is no such thing!
Last but not least, be a man (or a woman), stop your car, open the door, exit your car, lift the garbage bag and place it gently into the bin. Lowering your window, throwing the garbage out of the window and into the bin is not an option! There is a reason why you did not become a professional basketball player.
Thank you for reading,
Yours truly ‘cant believe I am still bothered by your driving after 17 years’ half greek citizen
