After dropping Leah off at the babysitter's yesterday, I came to a four way stop with another car. I was there first. I took my turn. She tailgated me down to the light. I made the right on red and was a good five seconds ahead of her. She proceeded to race up and swerve around all the other cars and then cut me off, as we came up to a red light. Her license plate frame? "Practice random acts of kindness". I laughed out loud and shook my head. I hope she saw me in her rearview. The light turned green and she then tossed a piece of trash out her window. What?? It was one of those awkward races (for her) where no matter how fast she went, she always ended up stopped at a light just in time for me to come right up behind her again and make eye contact in her rearview. I wonder if random acts of kindness include cutting many cars off within a one mile radius and littering our streets with her crap. Karma.

Oh my - you always wonder about people who just seem to be in that "I'm the most important thing in the universe, so outta my way" mode.

Nice (oxymoronic) plate for her!

LOL! Isn't it great that even though she was so much in a hurry yet she managed to get every red light. Maybe she'll think twice next time.

Oh, I will remember to bring some of those coffee candies home with me this fall.

Enjoy the three day weekend!

She stole the car. She must have...
Some people are sooooo rude.
I am glad she did not cause an accident because she very well could have if not for the kindness of others.
Have a wonderful day!

I HATE, HATE, HATE littering.

Tail-gating, driving like an idiot, yeah, they all piss me off too but littering is such a selfish act. Really it is.

I hope her fridge door didn't close that morning and all of her food went rotten. Now that...that would be karma.
