Slang Gang Word of the Day

November 3: right-of-stay

when two cars disregard the right-of-way guidelines they were supposed learn from a driver's manual when they were 16, resulting in both cars to remain motionless at an intersection assuming the other car will make the first move. Usually after about 1o seconds both cars will go at the same time which leads to a firestorm of profanity and/or an accident.

At a four-way stop sign intersection

Northbound Car: Is this person gonna go or what?

Westbound Car: Is this person gonna go or what?

Northbound Car: Freaking go dude

Westbound Car: Freaking go dude

Northbound Car: Screw this guy I'm going

Westbound Car: Screw this guy I'm going

Northbound Car: What the crap is wrong with you idiot?

Westbound Car: Screw you and your stupid PT Cruiser jerk!

**seriously cleaned up for this family friendly site. It was just too funny to pass up**

Classic Arizona driver!!! Not kidding! I had one guy sit & yield to ME for seriously 60 seconds when he was going STRAIGHT and I was turning, no stop signs involved.....I finally started to go and of coursre at that moment so did he. Unbelievable. It's not rocket science.

I'm so glad that my tiny little town finally got big enough that most of the 4-way stops have been changed to traffic lights.

p.s. what's it called when you see the other car coming, and know you're going to get there at the same time, so you hurry and speed up so you get there first, then do a quick pretend stop so you can hurry through the intersection before the other person can?

I find that this occurs with walking as well. When another pedestrian and I are walking straight at each other... do we dodge to the left? to the right? Maybe I will just stand still?

Sounds like you have been in the car WITH ME!!!

My 2nd husband was/is a drivers ed teacher at Copper Hills. When we were in the car, he used very colorful language. I used to tease him about teaching his students a whole new "driving slang"
