I can safely assume at least 98% of da WWD! Hui drive no?
We all remembah dat glossy orange bordered booklet full of pictures and multiple choice questions with da 'nostalgic' cover of H1 near University in da early 80's we passed along to family, friends and by da time it came back was all buss up.... but was still around somewea.
Many have forgotten da "rules of the road" and da very Q&A's we needed to know in order to obtain da PRIVILEGE of obtaining a driver's license. So be da case of dis frickin' idiot who didn't understand wat dis meant:
For those needing a refresher, it means "Merge" or "Merging Traffic Ahead".
And for those needing an in depth refresher it means dat those on da right hand side will be merging with da main road soon. Let me ask you dis, who has da right of way wen you see dat?
I'll let it simmer for those who are guessing right now.
Heading underneath da viaduct aftah work, I was in da left lane of da two lane road heading West knowing dat da lane will merge into one soon. As I approach da merge, dis lolo rolls up on da side of me (going about 35mph) and then inches his way just ahead of me as da lanes were merging. Once I seen dat he wasn't going to merge properly, I tapped my brakes to slow and avoid being a smooshed petroglyph.
Once da lanes opened up, I roll up along side him and suggest to him to take a driver's ed course cause he just blew through a merge and almost took me out! He proceeds to tell me (pointing to an imaginary sign) dat it was a "Merge".
Wassup Wit Dat! No f'in $%!t it was a "merge"!
BL: "Yeah Brah, it was a merge, YOU have to YIELD!"
IDIOT: "No, I don't.... YOU have to!"
I couldn't believe dat he just said dat. Funny thing is dat there's actually an "IGNORANCE" section in da Hawai'i Drivers Manual and da first of five noted "bad" driving categories is "Failing to yield to pedestrians or other vehicles having the right of way."
Guess dat braddah aced dat section of da test. LOL
For those trying to look for your buss up copy of da manual, consider dis a $5.50 gift..... or you could just send ovah a mini plate lunch instead.
