Seattle's Passive-Aggressive drivers!

The Word
In case you don't want to click on the photo, this drivers has taped a 5x8 index card to the back of every headrest, and to the dashboard in front of the passenger's seat, saying:
  • Wear your seatbelt if under 27
  • Don't comment on my driving
  • Don't comment on the smell, except for Forest
  • Don't distract me
Now that's the ultimate in Seattle passive-aggressive treatment of friends and family.

I have to wonder about the age restriction. And what does he mean by "Forest," capital and all?

Are these a thing?

I saw a car about a week ago that had a similar index card taped to the dash in front of the passenger's seat, that read "Rule 1: Cell phones must be face-down or in holster." There were no other rules listed, as far as I recall.

Does Seattle have casual carpools? That could explain this.

That's what I was thinking: instructions for rideshare/"slugging" passengers who don't know the driver.

"Forest" will be the given name of a passenger exempted from rule 3.

I expect it's referring to a "forest"-scented air freshener.
