I may have saved a life tonight with my lighter.
I was out grocery shopping for the past couple of hours. While I was pulling out from the Wegman’s parking lot, I had a near collision with another car because I did not see the car coming. Why you may ask? Well, the driver had not turned on the car’s lights.
The first thing I tried was to put my lighter out of my window and flick it a few times to maybe get the driver’s attention. Well, that did not work. We were out of the parking lot, and the driver seemed to be in a hurry. He was in the lane next to mine, when I was able to get his attention by again using my lighter. I do not have the reach to roll down the passenger side window of my mini-van, so I just had to flick my lighter and point at the front of his car. He smiled and loudly said thank you when he flipped on his lights which made me happy.
It is little things like this that can make my day. So tonight, I may have saved a man’s license, car, and maybe even life with my cheap Bic lighter.
