Dear Humans on the Road

Dear Humans with whom I share the privilege of driving each day, 
Please accept my apologies for the following comments, 
lightly dusted with sweet sarcasm. Enjoy!


Copyright 2018 World of Writer Mom


1. I tend to stop at all red lights prior to turning right. It's not something I made up just to make you irritated while you are on your way to work. I'll assume that the kind gesture you offered as you zoomed past me was a "Hey, girl. How ya doin?" 


2. When there is a shirt load of construction going on as I try to exit my building, it can be difficult to see around the gates, cones, and barricades that have been erected. Additionally, I need to watch out for the students who need to cross the 4 lane road to get to school across from my exit. When I finally see some clearance and have my turn signals on, that is NOT a sign for you to speed up, hug my arse, and honk that I have gotten in your way. (Yes, I intentionally spelled arse that way.)


3. When I need to change lanes to avoid missing my exit, I would appreciate it if you took notice, stopped tailing the cars so closely it is impossible to merge into traffic, and did not take it as a personal challenge to compete with me for road space. I have enough challenges without that extra stress.


4. Pay attention. PLEASE! Get off your cell phones and just...DRIVE! I'm tired of watching out for you as you swerve into my lane. 


Finally, please help me understand how honking at me and showing me your "special" communication finger is making the world better, safer, kinder? 


This post is dedicated to the wonderful people who provided three horn honks and two finger gestures this week. (And it's only Tuesday.)







Now...Go buy something nice for your mamas!

  2. One more example why our state should not legalize weed. Sorry to hear that more and more of those well meaning (hm) drivers are out there while you take your kids to school. It seems to be everywhere. People, just slow down and be courteous. It's easy and contagious. SMILE

    1. I really don't think it's about legalization of marijuana, to be honest. Texting while driving and other distractions are more of a concern. Drivers who are enraged are definitely not the ones on weed. I'd expect them to be more chill. Lol.
