The New Sunday Drivers
Posted 10/24/2011 11:55:00 AM

Why are we in such a rush? Seems like everybody is in a hurry to get somewhere these days, even on weekends when you'd think we might be dialed in to a slower pace.

 

This occurred to me last night as Roger and I were headed to the supermarket to pick up some dinner before watching the Amazing Race. And no, we weren't conducting our own amazing race! However, it appeared that everyone else around us was. I can't tell you how many times cars pulled out in front of us. It was Sunday night for crying out loud. How could anyone be that impatient?

 

I might add that our car was not creeping along. We actually had to put on the brakes because these people couldn't wait another few seconds for us to pass. It’s s not as if the traffic was heavy. There was no one behind us. So why would any car pull out in front of another?

 

For the record, I'm not a poker. But I don't think it's wise to take risks either. I just think being polite and patient on the road is the better and safer choice. I just wish others felt the same. You know, one day if they pull out in front of someone else, they might not be so lucky and they might be taking a trip to the body shop. That clearly will slow them down!
