Word Of The Day ~ Karma

karma ~ noun ~ destiny or fate. The effects of all deeds actively create past, present and future experiences, thus making one responsible for one's own life, and the pain and joy it brings to oneself & others.

On Saturday, Puffy & I travelled to the land of Harmony to check out new beds, do some grocery shopping, & visit Conrad & Bronco B. Whilst driving around Harmony, we witnessed not 1, not 2, but 3 ~ yes 3 ~ examples of stupid women drivers. I was so mad, & had a nice, healthy, 20 minute rant about them in the car to Puffy, & later on to Conrad.

Stupid women drivers make me angrier than anything else, since they perpetuate the myth that women are bad drivers & they make the rest of us look guilty by association.


Today, I just about rammed someone driving past as I pulled away from the post office. Luckily, the other driver {a woman} was watching more carefully than I & swerved to avoid me. I almost stopped her downtown to apologize, but embarrassment made me drive on by.

& that, boys & girls, is why karma is sometimes a bitch.

This really did make me giggle (as visions of North Battleford danced in my Head)

I nearly ran into someone in Saskatchewan too.

They swore at me and I felt really really bad.

I'm not a woman though. I don't drive with my genitalia - and the internet would have me believe that no one else does either.

What's fun is to ask a bunch of people who is a better than average driver. More than 75% of hands will shoot up. Most will be men. Then ask what average means.

Sometimes heads explode in a cloud of logic.

There is no such thing as stupid women drivers. Or stupid asian drivers, if you are my father or father-in-law. In driving, there are only 2 types: assholes and those who never make mistakes.

Lucky me, I am both types. Often at the same time.

Bruno ~ I've had only 2 near accidents in 7 years. I think that's a pretty good track record.
