you got me again!

i am not the most keen on driving....
well, i don't mind it,
but i would rather not drive on the highway,
or any major roads....
and in a perfect world, i would be the only one on the road...while i am driving....
but because that last one isn't possible,
i seem to figure out how to get where i want to go,
through neighborhoods, and back roads, and all that fun jazz....

well there is this neighborhood that i can cut through to get to and from the road that the mall is on....
its an nice little neighborhood with enough traffic calming things...to make a normal person hate to drive through it,
however, i love it!

all except for this

yeah i know
it seems harmless enough
its just a stop sign ahead warning sign

so you may wonder....
why do i hate that sign so much

i'll tell you

for some reason tonight
i felt the need to come to a complete stop at that sign,
on my way home from the mall....
i sat there....
and wait for the cars at the nearby intersection to go....
and wondered
why haven't they gone?

what is wrong with them?
don't they know they have the right of way?
i even went so far as to beeping my horn....to say....HELLO!!! you can go!!
all to realize...
i didn't have to stop
i was in the wrong...
i was the idiot...
not them!

so i just .... went,
then got to the stop sign
and actually did the right thing...
stopping,
and then going again
like a normal driver would do!
but feeling all to stupid to admit i was wrong!

ok, so the worst part about this....
and the most funny part....
i've done this like 10 times in the past year!
seriously!
and each and every time...
i think the same things
and then feel like a complete idiot when i figure out....
i didn't have to stop!

Yeah, but how do you know that the other guy WILL? Don't worry about it. I'd do the same thing...every time!

Stick to the back roads missy!

JK, I've done that too. Well, not exactly that, but I'm sure something as equally embarrassing!

lov said...

Stephanie said...

Ha! That made me laugh.
Better safe than sorry!

Seriously???? You stopped at the warning sign????

If so, that worries me and I have a story I could tell you about my stopping history.

If not, never mind, I'm a perfect driver!

I DO LOVE MY LAOKV and her wonderful stories!

brooke...
seriously
i stopped at the warning sign
and not just once
i think every time i drive down that road i do it!

and every time i ride in the car....
i wonder why on earth the driver didn't stop...until i realize, and then i laugh!

ha!
i can't wait to hear your story!

Great post!

Did you notice that something has been missing from your blog? It might have appeared around the time I stopped commenting? I’m sorry about all that. I took a little hiatus from the blogosphere, but I couldn’t stay away too long. After a break, I had to come by again and see what you’ve been up to.

Glad that I did.

PS: Thanks for the birthday love!

I'm sure I'd do the exact same thing!

Hey, I just wanted to tell you thank you so much for your kind words on my blog about Lucy. I so appreciate all the support.

Glad so see it looks like all is well in your neck of the woods...except for the pre-stop-sign!
