As I was driving to work this morning, down the highways of bended fenders and broken tail lights, changing lanes; I started to wonder what others in their cars around me are thinking. Were they just spaced out as I was just trying to get to work on time and safely or were they chatting on their cell phones? As I was driving and observing my surroundings, I realized my exit is almost upon me. I start to change lanes and the car behind me speeds up. Once I get in front of him, I still need to go over one more lane, he pull right out and cuts me off , so I can’t get in the lane I need to get to the off ramp. So I decided to give him the middle finger salute and then I stopped myself, Thinking why not just let it go and not start my day off aggravated and upset. I think if more of us would stop and say to ourselves how important will this be a year from now. We might let the little things in life go. I am sure on August 23, 2012, I will not remember that man in the white car.
So I think my affirmation will be live and let live and be kind to others. Although, sometimes, that can be hard to do, as I work in the complaint department at a very large timeshare company. We get all the complaints, that go to our upper management some that are really legitimate and others not so much, like the time we got a letter stating he was upset that there was not enough chocolate icing on his éclair.
All I can say is that each and every one of us is unique in our own way and that’s okay.
