If I’m driving crazy, maybe…

Dog Drving Car with Man in Back Seat

A few weeks ago, while driving my oldest daughter to school, a skidding car passed in a no passing zone and continued to zoom around cars. Once I got over the adrenaline rush, I said “Maybe she’s in labor and she’s got to get to the hospital NOW.” My daughter replied “Maybe her bladder control medicine quit working, and she’s got to get to a bathroom NOW.”  Then, we both laughed and decided we should create car magnet’s to warn people about the reason you might be driving crazy, so people would understand and not take it personally when you cut them off, etc.

Here’s part of the list we brainstormed:

If I’m driving crazy, maybe…

My toddler just learned how to escape her carseat

I’m in the FBI and I’m on my way to save the world

My library books are overdue

My kid’s will get suspended if they are tardy again

My movie starts in 5 minutes and I already paid for the tickets on Fandango

I don’t want my bride to think I left her at the alter

I must get to this yard sale before the pickers do

I need to get to my American Idol audition

I’m running away to join the circus

The parrot got out of its cage

I’m missing the Justin Bieber Concert

I’m just a jerk (Hey, we all have those moments but never when we are feeling good, so compassion is still in order.)

Well, I don’t think we’ll be heading off to the printers to make our car magnets any time soon, but we were laughing about the crazy driver and not assuming that she was trying to mess-up our day.  So, if you spot someone driving crazy, or acting crazy, maybe you can assume that there’s a reason that you don’t know about and that it has nothing to do with you. Life is easier when we all give each other the benefit of the doubt. Sending love out while driving is another process that can quell road rage.

I’m in a laughing mood today, so if you have any funnies to add to our list, or other way’s you forgive other’s crazies, I’d love to hear them. To prove it, I’m giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of March. I’ll put everyone’s name in random.org and choose a winner to be announced here around April 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and e-mail me if you’re the winner.

Love and Alchemy,

    I’m driving crazy because there’s a bee in my beehive hairdo.

      HeeHee. Good one, Erin. True story, I once had a car accident because a spider was crawling up my leg. In my defense, it was gianormos spider or at least it seemed like it to me.

    This is a wonderful post!
    And it made me laugh to read your list 🙂

    Thanks for the morning funnies!

    Here is my list
    oops…I need to catch the train and it leaves in 5 minutes…

    I can’t help it, Mr. Hyde is driving!

    Watch out! My evil twin is driving…

    I need to save middle earth.

    If I’m driving crazy… our family pet cheetah got off her leash again and I’m trying to catch up to her….

    If I’m driving crazy….I forgot I was in my car and not on my broom…..

    • Michelle Dobbins says:

      Laura, you are cracking me up!

      Since I’ve been learning astrology, another one popped in my head.

      If I’m driving crazy…mercury is in retrograde.

    Too funny! It’s true we don’t know why people do the things they do and we shouldn’t make up a story about it, for our own peace of mind. Making up better stories is always much more helpful and funnier.

    If I’m driving crazy… I’m trying to beat my husband home so I can have first dibs on the t.v.

    Thanks for reminding me that I have a choice of how I see things!

    • Michelle Dobbins says:

      You’re welcome. I figure if we are going to make up a story anyway, it should be one that serves us and makes us smile.
