Certainly . . . they can be . . . exasperating at times.
Nevertheless, I CHOOSE . . . sometimes doggedly . . . to FORGIVE them.
Because I NEED forgiveness.
Never met any mortal that was perfect.
Sure, some are more . . . clunky, ignorant, stupid, clutzy, inept, perverse, . . . than others.
And, sooner or later in my 70 years, I've been about everything anyone of those have been . . . at least once. Or, my relatives have. Or, my folks
impoverished renters have been. Or, my clients have been.
Don't want any resentments or unforgiveness or cynicism standing between me and Daddy on THAT DAY. I try to stay immediate on my forgiveness . . . and
certainly by bedtime. Sometimes it takes more prayer and work than others.
One of my 'things' . . . there's a couple of streets in town . . . One a Y to the right . . . Right lane SHOULD just continue driving. Another left
lane with cars turning left going East turning alongside toward the North the right lane from the east . . . and probably 5-15% of the drivers in the
right lane will pause right after the turn--as though waiting for those in the left lane to clear--WHEN THEY HAVE A PERFECTLY EMPTY LANE TO DRIVE
STRAIGHT AHEAD IN! Sigh.
The 2nd one is merely a right lane for 100-150 feet or so that the leg of the T intersection turns right into. Again, 5-maybe 20% of the cars will
turn slightly and wait for the lanes to the left to clear so they can cut across several lanes of traffic rather than just drive ahead in that lane
and merge. Sigh.
I've been tempted to get a hand held sign--THAT'S NOT A PARKING LANE!
And, I've been reminded this summer with all the road construction . . . on some main thoroughfares . . . there's the usual MERGE left/right, LANE
CLOSED AHEAD signs . . . and . . . as usual . . . some idiot drives either deliberately or cluelessly right up to the last possible 20 feet to expect
to be super graciously let back in the moving traffic. Often, I ignore them . They were arrogant enough or clueless enough to ignore the signs, they
can just wait. imho. Though I sometimes let harried mothers with kids in. LOL.
But then I remember the stupid driving stunts I've pulled in my 70 years. And I continue forgiving other people for being as human as I have been.
