"Thoughts From A Sleep Deprived Mind"

 


THE PROBLEM IS...

I, and every other sane person in the Permian Basin, have noticed the extremely aggressive driving on our roads.  I have become defensively cautious.  I now wait for a few seconds after the light turns green at an intersection for the inevitable red-light-runners. 
 
The problem is, I also get ridiculed by the male members of my family (especially my son and my brother) for being “too passive” when I drive.  My brother says “you have to claim the lane you’re in and don’t let anyone cut you off!”  My son says there is such a thing as “aggressive-defensive driving”.   Really?!!
 
I think what we need on our roads, in our stores, in our homes and at work…is more civility.  Let’s stop pushing and start being kind.  And I guess that means I have to stop screaming “Put down your phone!!!” when I am driving.  Hmmm.
