So a friend sent me this hilarious spoof about automatic transmissions, and it goes something like this...
A guy calls up the car service hotline and asks for help with his car.
What's the matter?
Well the car works perfectly in the daytime, but it refuses to drive at night.
The lady on the customer service line is baffled.
Then he explains:
- During the daytime, I just put the car into "daytime" (D) mode, and it drives fine.
- But then at night, I put it into the "nighttime" (N) mode, and it doesn't move.
- What's worse yet, when another car tried to jump ahead of him, he puts the transmission into "race" (R) mode, and he ends up hitting the car behind him!
At this point, the customer service representative is completely cracking up laughing.
Apparently not everyone has the same notion of "drive" (D), "neutral" (N), and "reverse" (R)--and frankly, maybe we shouldn't take so much in life for granted. ;-)
