“If you want the traffic light to turn green, look for something in your glovebox”

Waiting at a red light can seemingly take a long time. However, if someone wants to do a small task at the red light (such as sipping a drink), the traffic light seems to turn green right away.

“If you want a traffic light to turn green, start putting on mascara” was posted on Twitter by Court Bailey on March 23, 2011. “If you want a traffic light to turn green, pick up your phone to read or write a text. #neverfails #ugh” was posted on Twitter by Sam on October 29, 2012. “If you want the traffic light to turn green look for something in your glovebox” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on September 20, 2018.
