Lisa and Jim's Northern Nevada Real Estate Blog: Did You Think Before You Cut Off Grandma In The Slow Lane?

Did You Think Before You Cut Off Grandma In The Slow Lane?

This is a wonderful post from Karen Fiddler. 

This guy really gets around ... last week I sae him in Carson City!

Happy Friday to my Friends!


I witnessed an accident today! A large white SUV was racing down the freeway and did the old "swerve right in front of the car it was wanting to pass to make the point" thing. Yeah ok, this made him a jerk....and then we saw something horrible, the car he bypassed slammed on the brakes and spun out, crashing into the wall.

She was fine...well, shaken up. Very scared and a bit confused. But physically, just fine.

We stopped to make sure..along with many others. And it has really bothered me all day.

This jerk.....who felt the need to make his point while he breezed down the fast lane....did he even think?

Did he think about the husband who had loved this woman for the last 60+ years? If he lost his wife?

Did he think about the 5 (Ok....I'm projecting since I have 5 myself) children who call her mom and bring rolls on holidays?

Did he think about the 10 grandchildren that look forward to her special chocolate cookies she always makes when they come visit?

Did he think about her friends at church? or in her girls poker club? or the man at the deli who always gave her a few extra slices for free?

Have you ever done that? I have....not proud of that. I've been that jerk. But never again! She said that she got confused when he raced by and just lost control. Maybe she had other things on her mind....but did she deserve this? No...she was just minding her own business.

Now her car is totaled
Now she was scared and unsure of herself

So I ask again....given the destruction left behind. Did you think before you cut off Grandma today?

Hi Lisa..thanks for the reblog. I'm sad to say this guy drives all over the US, and we need to make sure he's not us.
