After much neglect, I've decided to try and post every day of the week. Kind of like the "365 Day Challenge" only I am going to give myself the weekends off. In order to do this I'll need some motivation. I can't just rattle off random things like I used to. That being said, here's what my weekly posts will consist of:
Mondays: "Memory Monday"
Tuesdays: "Topic Tuesday"
Wednesdays: "Wordless Wednesday"
Thursdays: "Thursday's Thoughts"
Fridays: "Frugal Friday"
So to get started....today is Tuesday which means I will share my thoughts on a topic. Today's topic: The Elderly and their right to drive. I sure hope I don't offend anyone.
Last week alone, I (fortunately) dodged 2 car accidents due to 2 older gentlemen. They both pulled out into busy intersections WITHOUT looking, and then proceeded to flip ME off as I skid to a sudden stop in order to avoid killing them instantly. They just shouldn't be allowed to drive, unless tested every year. They don't feel the need to pay attention to stop signs and blow right through. Sure! Why should you stop? Life is getting short, so I can see the need to rush. The rest of the world however, may have young children in the backseat and God forbid you hit me, your life will be cut even shorter my friend. My purse is too heavy and full of crap for a reason ya know. They don't know how to park and often take up 2, sometimes 3 spaces. They drive 30 mph on the highway, yet fly through town going 70. WTH?
My Grandmother stopped driving at 70. She figured that once she wasn't able to roll with the big dogs on the road, that it was time to retire the license. Now that's a smart woman.
Just my opinion. Feel free to share your thoughts on the topic.
