Yesterday as the other half and I were walking home, I noticed a car that hadn’t switched its lights on. The driver had her window open; in an attempt to be helpful I asked my partner to: “Shout ‘lights’!” (He was closer… and louder!)

Unfortunately he did this rather more sharply and loudly than I expected… The poor woman nearly jumped out of her skin, but she put her lights on.

Due to her reaction I pointed out to my partner that perhaps this wasn’t the kind/helpful gesture I’d hoped it would be… he pointed out that it might have helped avoid an accident – also true.
