I'll pack away my dick and bring my mouth back to the foreground for a while. As I mentioned earlier about the David Lopes talk show, there were concerns about the level of courtesy on Bermuda's roads. In response to that as a part-time driver and part-time pedestrian, that we cannot be so absolute or elitist about the types of wheel jockeys on the road.
It seems that there are a shrinking number of people who are content with having transportation and are actuall ycapable of making time, therefore decreasing their anxiety. There are so many of us who will find something wrong with someone else on the road but how many of us can actuall say, without looking from the outside in, that they are an inconsiderate wheel jockey.
How many people complain about the length or shortness of indicators, the speed of others, the colors of the cars, the drivers preference in music, a person's inability to stay on the LEFT side of the road (yes we drive Euro style down here), the cell phoners, and yes even the speeding truckers that like to tip over their precious cargos of liquor... not pointing out any seperate incidents which may have happened this month.
I, for one, can personally say that I'm an asshole. I have things about my driving which would drive most people insane; I never use my rear view mirror, for one. This then gives me the right to cuss off and complain about anybody on the road and keeps other speculators from saying that I'm too self righteous.
When we start complaining about others on talk radio, lets be sure we are either without guilt or know the list of liabilities that make us just as unsavory.
For the sake of the island and our future generations, get off your high-horse and join us back on planet Bermuda, please. If this seems like a good idea in your neck of the woods, feel free to spread the word there as well.
