I am not an ancient old lady. I come from a very large family, with a very large extended family. We are loud, funny, sarcastic, and full of love. We love getting together, we are big huggers, kissers, eaters, and enjoy our time spent together. As a child, I was fully aware, I always had my limits. I always had learned early on, treat your elders with endearing respect, they have earned this! Also, I was raised to treat other as I would want to be treated!
With that being said, what is going on in the mind of many drivers? I know, when I went to Driver Education, I was never taught to cut somebody off, because I was not paying attention, because I was on my phone, and missed my exit. Also, no matter where I lived, big city or little, the far left lane has always been the faster or passing lane. But, for whatever reason, Johnny Sleep Head, pulls into the far left lane, and he decides to get on his cell phone, and he is driving under 55 miles per hour! Come on folks, move over, it really is an insult to have a driver get into the right lane, so they can go around “Pokey Joe”, to drive at the posted speed limit! Oh, I must not forget to mention that when a driver make a mistake, and nobody is hurt, the driver should never flip the other car, that is driving the way the laws are posted, off to cover for your mistake!
I am no angel, I swear, I don’t always keep up on the laundry, and sometimes I make my kids eat cereal for supper, when I am to lazy to go to the grocery store!
I guess the moral of this story is, we are all human beings, we make mistakes. That is how we learn. We are not soulless robots without feelings. Fess up when you make a mistake, own it! More importantly, don’t blame others, make others feel bad, or flip us off. We all need to start using our manners. Manners are so much more than all the money in the world. It is becoming a lost art!
