Patience

I saw this on my facebook feed tonight. We seem to have a fairly cynical lot on this forum, but I just want to throw this out there for some perspective on our pax:

"As I was pulling into work, I was following this car. The sign in the back window says, “Learning stick sorry for any delay.”

Knowing this information, I was very patient with their slow shifting, and honestly they were doing pretty well for still learning. Then I asked myself a tough question: Would I have been just as patient if the sign hadn’t been there? I can almost definitely say no.

We don’t know what someone is going through. We don’t wear signs that illustrate our personal struggles. You don’t see signs taped to people’s shirts that say, “Going through a divorce”, or “Lost a child”, or “Feeling depressed”, or “Diagnosed with cancer”.

If we could read visually what those around us are going through we would definitely be nicer. But we shouldn’t have to see signs and have reasons to treat strangers with kindness. We should do it anyway, whether we know what is going on or not. Whether they deserve it or not."

Let’s give everyone an extra dose of patience, kindness, and love."

I agree. Slow drivers are the least of my concerns anyways. 85% of all accidents are caused by not giving assured clear distance to other cars. People are in a hurry, distracted, & riding bumpers like crazy.
I wasnt really talking about people in other cars, though that certainly applies too. I mean the people in OUR cars....the so-called paxholes.

Learning stick my butt! They are probably chatting on their phone instead of driving! No patience from me, I would honk their head off. But I get honked at myself all the time. You see, my vision is not so good, so often I have to stop in the middle of the street trying to read the signs. People often start honking at me for blocking their way. But hey, nothing they can do, right?

Learning Stick?

I drive my manual @@@@@@ in my truck nearly every day.

Sticks are used to:
Prop up a hood or cover
To start fires- kindling
