There’s something I envy about cavemen- and cave women, of course. Life was very simple, and all they took care of were their basic needs for survival. “Eat, sleep, and cover my privates in leaves” was probably their mantra then. They didn’t have to do this thing which I sometimes dread: DRIVE!
Today, driving is almost as essential and indispensable as, well, walking. If you want to get from here to there in as little time as possible, driving seems to be the best option. But just like anything, it’s not without its share of ups and downs.
Because of other drivers’ annoying habits, I feel I’m being driven up against a wall. One thing which really gets on my nerves is when I see some drivers texting while they’re driving. Can’t they see that they have only two hands- which should be on the steering wheel?
Another thing which irritates me is when I see women drivers putting on mascara while they’re behind the wheel. Again, I think they keep forgetting how many hands they have! They’re hopeless octopus wannabes.
Some drivers can be so inconsiderate when they play loud music in their cars. It’s distracting when they drive past you and catch you unawares. It’s a recipe for disaster, no doubt.
Instead of being a blessing, those Sat Nav consoles are starting to become a curse. I just hate it when I see other drivers tinkering with the Sat Nav when they should keep their eyes on the road.
Signaling is another thing most drivers tend to forget. Either that or they simply don’t care. It’s so thoughtless to not let other drivers behind you know where you’re going to turn. When they’re speeding and then make a last minute decision to turn left without signaling, for instance, that really infuriates me.
Thankfully, I don’t carry a gun with me in the car. Otherwise, I know may have used it on more than one occasion- just to put those careless drivers in place. Then again, I can just learn witchcraft and silently inflict harm on them…
