Stay out of the wrong lane
January 20, 2019
This morning I was thinking about how people in the wrong lane of traffic can mess up everyones ride.
I go into work at 5 am, which is great most mornings. With only a few cars on the road, it is really a nice commute. That is, until I get behind someone without a clue where they are going, and blocking the passing lane.
That happened Friday. The driver in the right lane was obeying the speed limit. The driver traveling in the passing lane was doing a little under the speed limit. There was no safe way to pass either of them.
Soon there was a group of us trapped behind them.
That is the way it is in life too. You are having a nice trip until someone gets in your way and blocks the road ahead of you, making it take longer to get to where you need to go.
If you are hearing about how many veterans someone thinks committed suicide today, you need to wonder what their point is. Who does it help when they just guess? How serious is the subject them when they cannot answer any questions?
The most obvious question they should have been finding the answer to, is, "What will change the outcome?"
