As we start our once a year ritual of the holiday season, oh wait a minute, it actually started over a month ago according to the commercials on tv and that holiday music I heard on the radio.
The holidays are a time for getting together with friends and family and hopefully a time for remembering our blessings. But we all know how stressful the holidays can be and how we can take that out on the other drivers on the road with us. Not only do we still have the everyday responsibilities of going to work, picking up kids from school and making appointments, but now throw in holiday shopping, going from one mall to another then to Wal-Mart, going to grandma’s house for dinner and hoping that “Drunk Uncle Ned’ doesn’t show up. It’s enough to spark road rage with one honk of the horn or being cut-off on the freeway!
When you are on a holiday road trip please be kind to your fellow drivers. If the traffic is backed up let someone else in and if someone lets you in, give them a friendly “thank you” wave, with all five fingers! Give yourself plenty of time for your shopping, try not to be in a rush, I know, easier said than done. Let’s make this the best holiday season ever with no road rage!! Together we can make it happen. See you next week.
