To the driver of the olive-green SUV:

This time of year, traffic seems to be worse and drivers seem to be meaner and less forgiving. I don't know if it's the early darkness, holiday stress, end-of-year crunch time or what, but it's evident in my evening commute home.

That being the case, thank you for paying attention so that even though my left turn signal is burnt out, you noticed I needed to get over and moved over to make room. Thank you for slowing at the next on-ramp to allow those people onto the expressway, and thank you for moving over a lane when the slower of the two continued to hesitate.

The more we pay attention to others and try to improve even little things, the better the world gets. Thank you very much.

Don'tcha wish you could teleport cookies and cocoa to people like that?

Get on the signal thing, tho. No need to get smash-ed by someone.

It's nice how people surprise you sometimes, isn't it?
