Whilst I sincerely appreciate your efforts and am well aware of YOUR capabilities AND your 26 years of experience in driving a motorcyle, I may remind you that I am a clutzy, uncoordinated and sometimes frightened woman of 42 years of age.
I am also an intelligent being. This means that I usually notice having left the turn signal on AT THE SAME TIME you do and if you REMIND ME ABOUT IT 80 TIMES, I will be concentrating so hard on whether the turn signal is on or not or should be or might be or ought to be, then I might well FORGET to pull the CLUTCH or look over my shoulder or ACCELERATE improperly.
If you are telling me that after the next U-turn I need to reach a speed of 45 kmh, pull the clutch and begin to brake AT THE POINT ON THE SIDEWALK AT WHICH YOU ARE STANDING, letting go of all brakes at the first cone, swinging to the left to avoid collision with imaginary object, followed by swinging to the right to get back to the other side of the next cone, braking, switching back into first gear, setting my turn signal, looking over my shoulder and making the next U-turn, etc. etc. etc…… if you give me ALL of these INSTRUCTIONS and then chide me for not properly carrying out the exercise, which I didn’t do because YOU WERE STANDING WAY SOMEWHERE ELSE having a CHAT with another person……well, consider yourself kicked in the shins. On both sides.
To put it short, these 12 sentences, which so often fall from your lips, do not, I repeat, DO NOT need repeating.
1) “Give it a bit of gas when starting off!”
2) “Turn off the turn signal after the U-turn!”
3) “Turn off the turn signal after the U-turn!”
4) “Turn off the turn signal after the U-turn!”
5) “That was too fast.”
6) “That was too slow.”
7) “You braked way too hard – didn’t you notice the rear wheel had blocked?!”
8) “You braked way too soft.”
9) “Turn off the turn signal after the U-turn.”
10) (While carefully passing a fellow student also on the practice road):”What are you waiting for? C’mon, accelerate!”
11) (After having just completed the U-turn at the beginning of said practice road, while said student was at the other end of it) “STOP! STOP! STOP! Never enter a practice road when there is another student on it! STOP! Stay there!”
12) “Turn off your turn signal.”
