FML - The follow-up

Today, I saw someone accidentally leave their headlights on downtown. Trying to be a helpful, I chased them down 2 blocks only to be informed that their headlights automatically turn off. FML

Thanks for all the friendly comments! The full story is that I was at outside of whole foods in my car when an old couple got out of their truck. I saw in my rear view mirror that they left their lights on. The street they were going down was a one way street, so I chased after them on foot. After some running and little shoving I reached them only for the wife to tell me "Oh hun, they turn off by themselves." I went back and yes, she was correct.

I, too, have been forced into social interaction by automatic headlights. It doesn't help that I can't talk to strangers without my ears burning. I don't know whose idea automatic headlights were, but I'd like to walk up to them and very quietly and timidly think about giving them a piece of my mind.

I agree. Sucks to waste your time, but not many people would do that, OP! You should be proud of yourself. My car shuts off the headlights automatically as well but I'm always wicked paranoid they won't shut off this time. I'm sure the person OP tracked down was thankful!

I can't count how many people have chased me down for the same reason. The headlight delay is really irritating. But it's always nice to see people being concerned and considerate towards people they don't know.

Give them a piece of your mind? Headlights that automatically turn off are the best invention since sliced bread. Ask everyone who's battery has died as a result of forgetting to leave their headlights on for a second opinion.

Haha, obviously these people didn't get the sarcasm.. It is irritating that they take so long to shut off. I think it does sometimes come in handy when you want some light to walk to your destination, though.

people, take the time to actually READ the words... #14 mistakenly wrote "forget to leave your headlights on" but meant to say "forget to turn your headlights off"!! #28 was pointing out that mistake and the rest of you just didn't understand either one!!
