Dear Connecticut Drivers....

...while I appreciate that, on any given day, you may be in no rush at all or perhaps feeling impatient or maybe even experiencing a wave of generosity toward your fellows, it does not change the order in which cars at a four-way stop are supposed to proceed.

And, you know what?  Your generosity or sloth or impetuosity (not to mention your damn cell-phone use) only complicates the process for the rest of us.

Look up the rules, if you don't already know them.

Then FOLLOW them.

Humbly,

That guy who arrived at the intersection after everyone else.
