Can you define a “split second?
The answer: It’s the time it takes between the light changing from green to red and how long it takes the driver behind you to hit his or her horn.
And now, the rest of the story.
A woman was out driving when she stalled at a red light. Hard though she tried, she was unable to restart the engine. Soon a long line began to form behind her. One of the men behind her was particularly obnoxious and seemed to constantly leaning on his horm. The car wouldn’t start and the noise began to make her crazy, so she formed a plan.
Exiting her car, she slowly walked over to the furiously honking driver and told him: “I can’t seem to get my car started. Would you be a sweetheart? Please go see if you can get it started for me. I’ll stay here in your car and lean on your horn for you.”
