Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

I'll tell you a little story.
I was in a big city last weekend, the biggest city I have ever been. I was trying desperately to get over into the lane I needed to get to the interstate. NO ONE would let me over. So, I made my own way over. There was a bit of a break and I nosed the HUGE, GIANT rental truck over into that break. The next thing I knew horns were blaring. The Hubby asked me if I had just made everyone mad. I answered, "Yes, but I really don't give a !#$%!" The next thing I know someone is pulling up along side me and yelling. I look over and give them a little "go on about your business" hand wave, sort of like what they are saying to me doesn't matter one whit. They keep on yelling but I keep on flicking my hand at them. Now, was I in the wrong? Absolutely, but at the time I felt I had every right to do what I did. I have been beating myself up over it ever since. What if I had caused an accident????
That's not the only thing. When I was driving back from my Dad's funeral, I became that aggressive driver that everyone hates! I was coming up on slow traffic in the pass lane and nearly riding their bumpers until they moved out of the way! (I also ended up with a speeding ticket.)
Sometimes I get upset and start fussing out loud at all the idiot drivers on the road. Yep, I say quite a few bad words, too.
BUT!!!! Now I am very aware of this behavior and I am going to try my best to stop it!!!! I am normally a very passive person. I just don't know what gets into me when I drive!
From here on out whenever I start to feel upset I am just going to paste a wooden smile on my face until the feeling passes.
WISH ME LUCK!!!!
Thank you, Karen, for the great words! I was able to out myself and take responsibility for my bad behavior!!!
