OK, I'm about to vent about something, so forgive ahead of time if this doesn't flow well...
WHAT'S UP WITH THE "LOOP"?!
This thing is driving me crazy, and I've only done it twice!
(For those of you who don't know what the "loop" is, I'll try and explain. It is a road that goes around 3 schools. It has one "driving" lane on the left, and one "pick-up" lane on the right, and it is one way.)
Yesterday I actually navigated it OKish, with help from my friend Dixie. And also some pure luck. Today, when I was actually earlier than I even intended (gasp!) It was a nightmare!
We were instructed to STAY IN OUR CARS in the loop. So WHY is everyone OUT OF THEIR CARS??? Seriously! I was in a line, where I was supposed to be, when I realize that the people in front of me are leaving their cars parked in the middle of the road, BLOCKING ME IN, and walking up to get their kids! So much for trying to follow the rules! Talk about road rage, it took all my self control not to start screaming at these people out my window! I was so frustrated! Finally someone came back to their car, and drove away, and I was able to get around the other parked cars and pick up my daughter. I would have parked and walked, like some smart friends of mine, except that I had 2 sleeping children in the car. I am just SO MAD I COULD SPIT! I realize that this may sound funny coming from me, since I am not always such a rule follower myself. But I am when it counts. Like if others are going to be negatively affected by my actions.
What is next months character trait?
Oh yeah, RESPECT!
