"I never think of it"

While on my way through midtown St. Louis, I found myself behind a van that glided freely from lane to lane and around turns without using a turn signal.

The van ended up at the same destination I did, and the woman who got out of the van was a friend of mine.

"Don't your turn signals work?" I asked.

"Sure, why?"

"I was behind you and I didn't see you using them."

"Oh, " she said, with a cheery laugh and sunny smile. "I never think of it."

Did you grind your teeth?

I confess I was surprised. This is a Ph.D. mother and in all ways a wonderful person.

I think I laughed too, if I recall correctly.
