Trudi’s Corner: Safety & Courtesy

By Trudi Cunningham

It would seem, no matter how many warnings or laws are passed in reference to cell phone texting while driving, some people will continue to do as they please. Do these offenders think the laws are for everyone else but never them?

How many saw the news and the young lady doing this to a friend while driving lost control of her car that turned over and she was killed? How many have taken note of others doing the same thing, driving with one hand, deliberately flouting obvious laws in this regard?

I decided to pay particular attention and air my gripes about stupid people doing stupid things, and I can say there are too many to mention. How about those lame-brains cutting in front of you and making a left turn? That’s what someone did to me. Fortunately, I was able to stop fast enough to avoid a collision. Would you believe, he just gave me a grin and went on his merry way? How about those drivers hogging the fast lane on the Parkway at 50, and refusing to move over?

Or the people in the supermarket check-out lanes with carriages piled up to their eyeballs, or those that will be in lanes that state handicap or up to 20 items and just ignore that particular regulation? Now you have the certain checker at a register who is involved in a personal conversation with the one in the next lane instead of doing their thing to move the lines along.

How about those T.V. personalities that interrupt someone in the middle of a sentence? How rude is that? Oh well, I guess it’s whatever floats your boat, or maybe I was born too soon and taught a different set of manners. There are several other instances that I could relate, but I will save those for another time.

Very good wishes to my Jewish friends for Hanukkah and a blessed and merry Christmas to all who believe. May all your wishes be fulfilled.
