You know how when you're in a rush, every light seems to turn red as you approach?
I also have the opposite problem if I am driving and have an idea that I need to write down. Today I was having a normal commute till I suddenly figured out how to restructure this week's column. The minute I had the thought, every single light was green. Finally when I was almost at work I managed to check my mirror and stop safely at a yellow before I forgot what I needed to write down.
I don't know how they do it, but obviously the traffic signals can read my mind.
