“When you have a good friend that really cares for you and tries to stick in there with you, you treat them like nothing. Learn to be a good friend because one day you're gonna look up and say I lost a good friend. Learn how to be respectful to your friends, don't just start arguments with them and don't tell them the reason, always remember your friends will be there quicker than your family. Learn to remember you got great friends, don't forget that and they will always care for you no matter what. Always remember to smile and look up at what you got in life.”
~ Marilyn Monroe

Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.

"A STEADY YELLOW LIGHT tells you a steady red light will soon appear. If you are driving toward an intersection and a yellow light appears, slow down and prepare to stop. If you are within the
intersection or cannot stop safely before entering the intersection, continue through carefully."

PA Driver's Manual
Chapter 2.

In reality, it means
A) stomp on the gas pedal
B) activate the nitrous oxide
C) activate mirror shields over the license plate and all windows to thwart the red light camera.
D) If necessary, lift the safety cover and punch the BIG RED BUTTON to activate after burners and fly over the car/truck/building/departing airliner in front that's slamming on the brakes.
