You see my car idling in the driveway on my busy double yellow line street in inner Portland, and you want to be nice. So you stop your car in the middle of the street and wait, cars backing up behind you for blocks, for me to back out of the driveway. Look, I've lived here for 15 years and I back out of this driveway 17 times a day. I wait for traffic to pass and then pull out, it's not hard. When you stop it takes me at least 45 seconds to notice you, meanwhile you are pissing off 4 blocks worth of cars forced to stop behind you. Just go ffs and stop being stupid nice.
