YKYAEM when you're much less concerned about your A/C not working than when your fuel economy instrumentation has an issue.

YKYAEM when you carry a rag to wipe the inside of the windshield so that you don't have to turn on the defrost which kills the electric only driving range

A squeegee blade works better. It's only a problem for the Prius and Metro[-type] cars wherein you can't reach the bottom of the glass. The flat-screen Beetle still wins on that count.

YKYAEM when you freak out because your start-stop-equipped car (or hybrid) is idling at a stoplight.
