GOOD morning Kings and Queens,
On my ride in to work this morning, I was paying extra attention as I do every morning in particular routes to the actual people driving around me. I notice as I always do that there are particular areas where the drivers tend to purposely cut you off look in the mirror at you and smile… Now normally most people will immediately get pissed the hell off and start the road rage. Lately I have found the ability to just laugh at a lot of the BS that people do. It isn’t like I haven’t been able to do this before, but sometimes there is nothing you can do to make an angry person laugh at the stupidity that is right in front of them. I watched as the driver that was cut off grabbed her phone and proceeded to take either a video or picture of the person that cut her off (the vehicle itself). It was funny and not funny to watch the whole thing unfold. She sped past me went to jump lanes and he waited just as she was about to hit the gas pedal to speed past him and he jumped right in front of her with no signal usage. She hits the breaks and jumps lanes again to keep from hitting him, luckily I was back far enough to let this happen without me being hit. That had to be the point she made up her mind to take record of him and she jumped right back behind him to take record of the vehicle. At this point I’m laughing and cruising past the villain as he smirks and pretends that he didn’t do anything. The lady gets behind me to drive up next to him and she looks dead at him and she starts fussing waving her phone at him and of course he laughs, which pisses her off even more. I laugh because of the stupidity that road rage brings out of us. The stupidity that negativity brings out of us all, it’s so ironic how fast karma and laughing can catch up to you to see if you have learned anything from the lesson delivered at hand. Once the drama settled I was behind a vehicle and we came to a red light but there’s a sign that says, “right turn on red in right lane only”… Well we were in the right lane on red so we could turn…. NOPE the crazy mean heffa in front of me decides to look at me in her side mirror and give me an evil smile… I guess she thought it was piss me off that she sat her silly self there. NOPE, I smiled and waved right back at her… “I SEE you and I know exactly what you’re doing!” She decides to go and attempt to take over all of the lanes by jumping from lane to lane…. Well as soon as she hit the gas pedal to speed up the red light caught her and guess who had the enjoyment of pulling up right next to her!? You got it, ME!!! You talk about smiling, with my music blasted and looking at her like HAHA you thought you were going to piss me off…. HELL TO THE NAW NAW NAW…. She got irritated and turned off as soon as she could, after making her best attempt to not let me pass her and to avoid me from looking at her with a smile on my face.
The moral to my road rage morning is people are going to people and of course you those types of people out there who will piss you off by accident and those who do it viciously on purpose. DO NOT LET THEM STEAL YOUR JOY OR YOUR SMILE. Remember if you smile when they really want to see you anything but happy, then you have let them win and furthermore you let them control you and your emotions. Fridays tend to be a naturally joyful day for us all because most of us get to enjoy our weekends away from the true responsibilities of adult life and families.
Some people say that when you are having a good time it seems as though something bad happens or the time just flies by, it never fails…. I say if you are having a good time NO MATTER what storm may come it most definitely will pass and surely you can choose to continue the smile and enjoyment or be drowned by the storm… For some this is a little harder than others and we may need to focus on the storm in order to get through it, that’s more than perfectly fine because that is the wa some operate.
What I will say is:
- Do not spoil it for others
- Let others be an encouragement to you
- Utilize the moment, the storm, and your energy to the best of your capabilities that way WE ALL get through this together.
#HappyFriday #EnjoyYourWeekend #SmileWhenYou’reMad
