You hate people running up behind you on the highway, because now you have to speed up to the speedlimit! You look for right turn pockets along the highway to smoothly cruise into and let the speedy folks pass, then merge back into the travel lane. Being patriotic, you admire the flag, and for what it tells you about the headwind situation! ; )

But only if the flag is on a stationary pole. If it's on a vehicle that doesn't belong to the Ambassador, it's a horrible waste of fuel.

  • Dual football pennants on the C-pillar bad
  • Raccoon tails on dual trolling rods good

Change my, you know, the thing.
