I have lived in a cold climate pretty much all my life. I know what it means to be Canadian.
So I was somewhat offended when I turned the ignition on my car on the first cold morning of the Fall. As the system came to life a warning message was displayed on the dashboard:
“Ice possible. Drive With care.”
Thank you very much, but I don’t need a three-year-old (car) telling me what to do. And I resent the implication that I don’t drive with care in all conditions.
The message has me wondering though. Has the manufacturer been sued by someone who skidded on the ice and had an accident? Is this a cover your behind message akin to the warning “may contain nuts” that I have seen on a jar of nuts? How stupid is the average person supposed to be that such warnings are necessary?
Probably better that you don’t answer that – you’ll offend the Donald Trump supporters.
