83 Days ’til 40: Trashing Our Cities


It appears that today’s post is going to be another short rant…. sorry!  I was driving home from work tonight and was inspired by the scene pictured above.  This was what I saw in the grass next to a stop light.  It made me sad, it made me embarrassed, it made me angry.

85 Days ’til 40: Unisex Bathroom Prude

Photo Credit:

Yes, today I am breaking from my self-help norm to go into more of a rant mode (albeit, a very small rant).  I must confess, as evolved as I would like to think I am, I have not yet arrived.  I am a unisex bathroom prude.  “What,” might you ask, “is a unisex bathroom prude?”  I am so very glad that you asked!  A unisex bathroom prude is someone who just cannot wrap their heads around the idea of a unisex bathroom.  (As a side note, I am referring to a unisex bathroom with multiple stalls and men and women using private stalls, side by side).

398 Days ’til 40: Tailgating (and I do NOT mean the party)

Tailgating……  such a dangerous choice, and yet SO many, SO VERY MANY people do it!  What are they thinking?????  Today I was on my way home from a meeting and 13, yes 13 people tailgated me during the 90 minute trip home.  I was going the speed limit!  I was going OVER the speed limit!

There are so many unnecessary deaths each year caused by poor driving and I am always in awe of how many seemingly incompetent (or just highly careless) drivers are on the road.  I wish I had answers to the question, “How do we better protect our roads???”  Harder driving tests?  Tougher fines when caught?  More cameras?

I do not know the answer, but what I do know is that I care, I care about my family and friends and I want them to be okay, which means I do not want some idiot tailgater riding up the @ss of their vehicle.  It is as dangerous as texting while driving.  When a person tailgates they do not have the proper space to react in an emergency.  It is not safe!!!

When will people learn?????
