i am walking and some lady is getting in her SUVmobile and
then she's in and i'm watching to see if she's going to back
out. she's watching to see if i'm watching. then she's just
waiting, so i just keep walking.

then she turns on her blinker. her right blinker. her car is
pointed towards her garage, away from the street.

what does this mean?

like, in this context... is she going to go left or right?
in this context, what constitutes left or right, anyways?

...and why even bother turning on the blinker?

People should have to have a drivers license to drive a
vehicle and don’t forget power blinker fluid.

Question 1 ~ you are some mom sitting in your
SUV in front of your house, which has multiple sets
of badly-calibrated floodlights, that get set off as you
walk by across the street from their house, and
continuing your issues with using lights correctly, you are
about to back out of your driveway, and you firmly turn on
your right blinker. do you mean:

a) [presuming we are facing the house] you are backing out
of the driveway to the right, to go down the street to the
left?

b) [presuming we are facing the house] you are backing out
of the driveway to the left, to go down the street to the
right?

Question 2 ~ Are you considering left and right
to be oriented based on the orientation of your car, or the
direction it will imminently be moving?

(spoiler: [presuming we are facing the house] she went down
the street to the right)

that there are literally four distinct possibilities to
explain how she rationalized it

[unless we go into bizarre shit like "i turned it on because
you were coming from that direction and i was pointing at
you with my blinker to say hullo" anyways]

then option five, she hit it by accident and didn't even
realize it was on
