A Smile A Day – Day 5 – Traffic Stop

This was recently brought up to the surface and so i have to repost….

Trent's World (the Blog)

800px-LED_traffic_light_on_redEveryone in the world
Seems out on the road
Cars full of people
Trucks carrying a load

We’re all in a hurry
We just can’t wait
To get to our homes
Can’t you see that I’m late? 

The light turns green
And everyone goes
The car in front of me
Starts but then slows 

With a wave of thanks
A car leaves the store
He’s been waiting to go
For ten minutes or more

    ahhhh – well done, T
    when we lived in Florida a while back – my mother’s pet peeve was when the light would turn green and nobody would move. It was puzzling.
    and annoying.

    but at least here – the care slowed to let someone out. kindness!

      Hi Y, it’s been a while! Traffic can be frustrating, but the older I get, the less I let it get to me. A while ago I discovered that the real time difference between being ultra-aggressive and nice can be counted in seconds. Why be a jerk and give yourself high blood pressure when you gain nothing? So I leave early and go with the flow and all is good in life, or at least in traffic ;)
