What the heck is wrong with people?
Just to prepare you, I have a rant coming on. WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? When did your business, life, errands, whatever become more important than mine? Or anyone else’s, for that matter.
How did it become ok to roll through a stop sign behind the driver in front of you? You. Didn’t. Stop! How do you justify that?
Tonight I reached my breaking point. Driving through that darn mall that is one of only two entrances to our complex. It is a lesson in patience. People rushing to cross through traffic without a thought of my car in their path. I can’t begin to tell you how many times we almost get hit. Daily.
I’ll admit that I’m not the most patient person as evidenced by my “word” for 2013. But, I was taught that I stop at a stop sign. That I should take turns when I come to a multi-stop intersection. I, also, learned that it’s rude to cut people off. I even try to keep my speed no higher than 5 miles over the speed limit.
I try to make it to and from my destination alive. It’s kind of a big deal to me and my family. I’d like to get you safely home, too. Just so you know. I’m not into taking out random folks.
So why is it ok for you to get home safely at the expense of my safety? Think about it. Every time you drive through a stop sign or drive 10 and 20 miles over the speed limit up my behind, you’re putting my life in danger. I’m not perfect, but I can (and do) follow the rules of the road and the laws of this land.
And, I realize that not every drives this way. Maybe you don’t. You can do your part to prevent this behavior in others. Please teach your kids not to drive this way. Catch yourself when you start to drive unsafely. I thank you. My family thanks you.
So, I’ll ask you again, What the heck is wrong with people?
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
There is no law against these things!
Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
