Random thoughts for Tuesday...

Sometimes I'm a little irritated by people. Particularly the ones who don't obey the rules or laws. For instance...

1. If the light is red, it means STOP. This applies to EVERYONE. Even those people who think they are in a hurry.

2. Turn signals come in every vehicle. EVERY SINGLE ONE! So if you are talking on your phone and doing your make up and writing a list with you left toes YOU STILL NEED TO USE IT!

3. Snacking on produce while shopping is STEALING. They can't weigh you when you enter the store and then when you leave and charge you for the difference.

4. A leash law means the DOG is ON the LEASH. Not that you bring it with you just in case!

5. Being in a turn lane doesn't mean you can turn which ever way you want and everyone will stop. EVEN if you use the turn signal. There are lanes on the LEFT and RIGHT because that's the way you are supposed to turn.

6. 10 items or less MEANS 10 ITEMS OR LESS. Not 11 or 12 or a whole damn cart full!

7. If there are emergency vehicles on the side of the road MOVE OVER! Again, this applies to everyone!

8. I know this isn't a LAW in every state but seriously, someone came up with this for a good reason. WEAR A SEAT BELT! And these GUIDELINES really mean something when it comes to children. Put them in an appropriate car seat for their age/weight. If it's too big, it's not safe. REALLY. A seat belt on a little 4 year old isn't going to do it in a head on crash.

9. It's not okay to beat your wife. EVER!

10. Kids should not be beaten either. EVER!

So that's just some stuff I've been thinking about lately. As you can see other people on the road cause me a great deal of irritation. To be honest I don't really mind people who talk on their phone and drive. As long as they can pay attention and use all the car's features when they are necessary. One day I saw a lady talking on her phone and smoking a cigarette. NO HANDS ON THE WHEEL! I think she was too busy to be driving.

Isn't it sad that so many people think the rules or laws don't apply to them? I get so frustrated sometimes at the lack of care people give to the people and places around them.

My favorite is: Turn signals come with every vehicle. So true!

I agree with you in every single one of them, specially love thos people who thing they can defy physics laws by trying to go trough a red light.

I share a lot of those frustrations with you. Especially the driving ones. Oh the ignorant folk that are on the road. I'm absolutely floored some days that more accidents don't occur from the chaos I see during my commute.
