So, for the last month or more people have been driving crazy… even for Jordan (and trust me, that’s saying something). In one day alone last week, I saw:
- A mom alone in her station wagon with her two kids driving with them in the trunk
- A traffic jam caused by a guy who overheated his car and managed to stop it blocking the entrance to a busy circle in morning rush hour traffic. No worries, he didn’t try to push it out of the way, he was deep in the middle of trying to fix it!
- 3 near misses that day with people who turned from side streets onto main streets without looking
- Another circle entrance blocked by a woman in a car who stopped in the middle of the entry lane to ask directions of the police officer. Again, no worries he didn’t ask her to park in the empty circle. Instead he proceeded to give her detailed directions. Sigh.
All in all, it’s been a crazy month or more for driving. Then, yesterday, I bumped into the mom of one of the Bean’s friends who had had an accident where someone opened the door as she was driving by and hopped right out. In an effort to avoid him, she swerved and had an accident involving broken bones. Personally, I think it’s time to boycott the street until the drivers shape up…
