YKYAEM if you shout things at red lights that you would never dream of saying to a real person.

YKYAEM if you wonder who you should complain to about the way a certain red light is timed.

Yes indeed. I love the lights that turn red for no cross traffic, but when cross traffic does arrive, they get a red and you finally get your green.

Or the one with a T to the left. When oncoming traffic has the green, I still have a red. ???

Mostly, though, I handle them by slowing down before I can see the light. If I can respond to the light cycle by accelerating instead of braking, I win much more of the time.

Sounds like these lights are de-conflicting between oncoming traffic and traffic making a left turn.

That's the way lights are getting set up here nowadays, allowing left turns only while oncoming traffic has a red light.

Maybe all you foreigners do it all the time? I have never heard it in Sweden anyway.
I don't know anyone here in Poland who would use that phase. Or maybe they don't dare use it when Mr. 1700km-Tank is within earshot?

YKYAEM if...
... You almost always forget how much you paid for the last tank of fuel by the time you need to fill up again.

You might be an ecomodder if you forget what side of your car the fuel filler is on because the last 2 times you filled up it was in someone else's car.

YKYAEM...

YKYAEM when, as a pedestrian, you time your entrance to a crosswalk so that the oncoming vehicle doesn't have to stop.

Good for you! Saving gas even when it's not your own
I just hate it when the last car in a long string stops to let you pass, so when waiting at a crosswalk I pretend to be looking elsewhere.
