this morning I encountered the "double whammy" when I entered the Walmart Zone (I'm telling you, it's the warmer temps - as in slightly above freezing because really I'm not talking about 70 degrees - but this sucky weather - that's an entirely different subject). Anyway... first there were the two cars that pulled out mere inches in front of me and then proceeded to go 20 mph. I guess their big hurry to get on the road after the shopping extravaganza at Walmart became less critical once they had actually ticked me off (because really it's all about me :-)) Which brings me to something I have to tell you about me and it's not good. I'm going to say this very quietly,
when someone is behind me and I know they are in a hurry (proven by their lack of stopping for stop signs, tailgating and just general bad driving) I may, depending on my mood and sense of urgency, go a little slower than the person behind me may desire. I KNOW! I told you it was bad! And once I even stopped at the stoplight while it was still yellow just to annoy the person behind me (I told you I can be crabby). So this makes me wonder - those Walmart shoppers - do you think they were just trying to annoy me this morning? Would someone actually do that to ME? Maybe, in the future, I should just act like I have all the time in the world and approach the Walmart Zone with a smile on my face and a foot on the brake. Would that fake them out and cause them to speed up? Hmmmm, now that's something to think about for the rest of the day.
Oh and FYI - Blogger spell check does not recognize Walmart - I'm just sayin'...
