I took a small detour this past weekend and got caught in the middle of a 5k race. A police officer kept me from moving for over 30 minutes while hundreds of runners passed by me.
After about 15 minutes, I wanted to scream “Can’t you let just one car through?”
Some drivers sitting behind me lost their control and did three point turns in the road to backtrack. That move endangered every pedestrian…while others were banging on their steering wheel in frustration. I was sure someone was about to be arrested.
Stuff Happens! (I think there is a bumper sticker similar to that)
When inconveniences like that happen to you, can you maintain control? If you don’t, people can get hurt…or you can end up on the wrong side of the law (smile).
Thanks for listening.
