Where are you going and why are you in such a big hurry? That is what I would like to ask some of the people that pass me in the morning. Each day I get up and get ready for work then head out and join in the Indy 500 as we all rush to work. Well I am not in a big hurry so I lose the race. I get up 15 minutes earlier than I have to so that I don't have to rush. I like to get ready then sit quietly and meditate for a few moments before getting into the rat race. Once I hit the road, I drive the speed limit and make it to work with lots of time so that I can again relax before starting my work day.
Not everyone is like me though, Every morning someone gets right on my bumper and swirves back and forth waiting for just the right moment to pass and then they head on down the road at high rates of speed. I usually catch up with them at the next light only to see them fly off again trying to get somewhere quickly. I admit it, I do drive what I consider the speed limit. If it is 55, I stay between 55 and 60 depending on the driving conditions. For some reason this makes people around me mad.
You know I really don't care of these people want to break the law (and that is what they are doing) and I can live with them endangering others on the road but think about this for a moment. Why should they be mad at me for obeying the speed limit? I mean just because they waited until the last minute to leave their houses is no reason to be mad at me. They should be mad at themselves for not being able to plan their day properly. That's how I see it.
Ironically some of these same people hate their jobs so here they are rushing to get to a place they hate. Isn't that strange. Now on the way home they stop at the store, the bank for stop in for a beer somewhere instead of rushing home. I think some people need to shuffle their priorities a little. Me I will just keep taking my time and if you happen to be one of those people that passes me and gives me the finger, I will politely wave back and say have a wonderful day and hope you make it to work alive.
I have heard the excuse that it isn't breaking the law because everyone does it. Does that make it right? Am I the only one that drives the speed limit? Why are you mad at me?
Have a great day,
