Today's definition was suggested by memyselfandbo who was thinking of those irritating drivers who make left turns without signaling, or worse putting out the wrong signals. And I agree. When you're cruising, there's nothing more annoying than someone who sending out mixed signals. Thank you memyselfandbo. ~ James
