Well, crap. God is apparently so angry about the Grammy nominations that we have caused Him to cry on us. Here are 8 driving tips for this difficult time:

8. While you are driving, brake suddenly.
7. Try to beat all the yellow lights. Your yellow light fairy is looking out for you today.
6. Definitely for sure drive somewhere.
5. When driving, suddenly change lanes. (There was a big puddle there!)
4. Circle the parking lot extra long to find a good parking space. Your parking fairy is looking out for you today.
3. Limit yourself to three or four Snapchats per trip.
2. Make a joke about free car washes. For example: “Free car washes today!* (*Offer valid only at precipitating locations.)”
1. Definitely make sure you drive somewhere while it’s raining.

Hang in there, the rain is expected to continue till tonight. If you have any more driving tips, feel free to leave them in the comments.
