My favorite hobby...


Have you ever known someone who has had more car accidents than you've had pairs of shoes? Whether the accident(s) were their fault or someone else's, shouldn't they take the hint? I know this girl (kind of) through a friend of a friend. I've known (of) her for about 4 years now, and in the first 2 years, she had around 5 accidents. Her online journal chronicled a new mishap every few months and (of course) they were never her fault. At one point, I think there was a back brace involved. I got sick of reading about the drama so I forgot about her for a while. Two weeks ago, I stumbled across her online journal again. Surprise, she had been in another car accident the previous week. Now, even if she went those last 2 years without a wreck, that's still 6 accidents in a matter of 4 years, and I don't have a clue at how many occurred before I knew her. Take the hint, you suck at driving. And if they truly weren't her fault, you still suck at being in a car. Take the bus.

I see terrible drivers every single day. And I see so many situations where, were an accident to occur, the idiot driver may not believe he or she was at fault. Believe me, he/she was guilty. I am amazed at how often I see drivers not paying attention to the road. Aside from all the cell phone talkers and makeup putter-oners, 80% of drivers on my commute are not paying attention to the task at hand: keeping their damn car on the road at the appropriate speed while being aware of other cars. Whether they're staring at the planes taking off and landing, gawking at the new Sea World water park, or chatting with a passenger, it's clear that they're mind is not where it should be. When I drive, I drive with a purpose: to get where I'm going.

So, above mentioned girl, thank you for jacking up auto insurance rates for those 6 other drivers. Turn in your license and get a ride.
