We needed an attitude adjustment.
That was our realization after starting to call every other driver on the road an idiot, a moron, a fool, an imbecile… And we really did make a go of it. The solution seemed simple enough. Instead of calling them names, we would simple choose to see the funny in it all.
Like the people who park their cars in our complex so they take up multiple spaces. Isn’t that funny of them?
And the people who jaywalk, wearing black, on a dark street, long after the sun has gone down. Hilarious!
And, of course, the drivers who decide they like the lane we’re in, so they veer over without checking to see if anyone else is already occupying that space. That’s a knee-slapping good time.
I know I’ve mentioned these people before, the ones who don’t walk the extra 10 steps to return their carts after shopping, but since I’m changing my attitude about them I think they bear mentioning again. They piss me right off. Sorry, nothing funny about that one. I guess the attitude adjustment didn’t work.
So, we’re back to calling them all idiots… because sometimes it’s okay to call something, or someone, exactly what it is. Right?
Let’s discuss. What do you think?
