So I heard on the radio last week that there’s a proposed bill on the floor banning hand-held cell phones in Missouri.
Dear God above, please let it pass.
And no, I’m not trying to be sarcastic, I truly hope it passes. There are bad drivers everywhere, but here in SW Missouri? I think we’ve gotten more than our fair share. In fact, you could skim the top of the bad driver cream, I’m betting you, most of them would be from Missouri. Some of the stupid stunts people do just to save a few seconds nowadays … *shakes head* it truly amazes me.
And I can’t tell you the number of people I’ve had to swerve by, or slam my brakes for, who have been absolutely clueless to my existence because they were too busy yapping nonsense.
Truly. I should keep count. In fact, I think I’ll start carving tally marks in my dashboard just to prove my point.
Of course, even if they pass the law and they ban hand-held devices, there will still be jerks out there doing the same sorts of things like this guy.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
This wouldn’t be so funny if it weren’t ACCURATE.
Seriously. Have you HEARD about voice mail? It’s a handy device that records messages when you can’t talk on the phone, you know, like when you’re driving and responsible for not only your own safety, but those in the car with you as well as those around you on the road.
It’s pretty cool. Check it out.
