It’s called a “turn signal” Actually, it’s a “turn signal switch”. The actual turn signals are on the outside of the vehicle, where other people can see them. The “turn signal switch” controls these signals, and it allows other people to know when you are about to turn, or change lanes, for instance- it’s almost as if THEY CAN READ YOUR MIND! You must co-operate, though, for this to happen. Now here are some instructions for you, lest you become confused.

If you are turning left, push the little lever down. It will click into position and a little light on your dashboard will begin to flash. DON’T PANIC! this is just a little light to show you the whole system is working. And when you have made your turn, the switch will TURN ITSELF OFF AGAIN AUTOMATICALLY!!! It’s as if it were MAGIC!

Now. The hard part. If you are turning right, push the little lever UP. It will click into position and a little light on your dashboard will begin to flash. DON’T PANIC! this is just a little light to show you the whole system is working. And when you have made your turn, the switch will TURN ITSELF OFF AGAIN AUTOMATICALLY!!! It’s as if it were MAGIC!

Now, remember- Left, down. Right, up.

Please print this out and put it on every car you see. Don’t worry about offending anyone. the three people who know this, in north America, are also in on it.
