Yesterday I drove up the valley to Kelowna. I really notice the difference between the drivers here and in Kelowna.
In Penticton, my usual complaint about my fellow citizens is for them to stop dragging their feet and drive! I am not an aggressive driver, and my daughter would probably say I toddle since I usually drive about the speed limit. The frustration is the number of people in Penticton who drive the BELOW the speed limit EXCEPT on side streets.
I wish people would just crawl along on side streets but some people in my neighbourhood, pound on the gas pedal regardless of the number of yards to the end of the street, and the requisite semi-full stop.
In Kelowna, the drivers are all in rush, they drive along intent on riding on the bumper of the car in front of them. They drive like they are in a roller rink, swerve, pound on the gas, and then sit idling at the next light, or bumper sniffing the car ahead of them.
The fact is that this is life, and there is always going to be people around me, drivers in front of me, drivers around me that get my goat. It’s not going to bother them. I have to let it go, and relax, breathe deep and keep my sense of humor and perspective.
