Drive To School

Young man drove to school this morning.

We looked both ways and after a long while, I finally said, "ok it's good to go".

I meant after the van that was driving by ... went past us.
He starts going while it was in front of us

I yelled, "not now "...

So, we get across the street.

He says, "I know what's wrong".

"I don't have my glasses on."

He stops ... yes, he stops in the road to put them on.

I had suggested he pull into the next street.

Ok, we're off again.

We stop and I say, "We can go after that truck".

He starts to roll forward ... another, "oh I didn't see it".

I'm telling him to slow down ... 25 mph area near a school

We spot a police officer on a motorcycle with a speed gun

He decides to wave at him

I'm telling him ... "no, don't wave." "Why not ? "

I then have explain about how you don't give

them a reason to pull you over ... "don't do that again"

"Now, slow down and turn but stay in your lane "

We are almost there
and they have a thing in the center of the turn lane
so he has to go either in front of it or after
I tell him, "in front"

we almost went in the ditch on that one

We get to the school parking lot and I tell him

"just park here"

he pulls way up and jerks it to a stop

Why do I have to teach him to drive ? Anyone out there want to volunteer ?

And, I'd been wondering why my shoulder has been hurting ... whip lash maybe ...

Haha this was hilarious reading. I loved the part when said he waved at the police officer. Such comedy.

I've been driving for years and I think I still freak my mom out if she is in the car with me. I can't tell you how many times she says slow down. And I am the good driver!

Oh boy, I would have no fingernails left if I had to teach anyone to drive!

I think he should have gone to Specsavers!
I admire you for trying.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
