Yesterday was a bit of a mess. Sitting at the border & an idiot smacks right into the back of the car. On their phone/fiddling and not paying attention. Minor damage, but enough that the car has to go in for repairs. People. Get. Off. Of. Your. Phone. When. Driving! No phone call is that important. And if it is, pull over/stop/turn off your car. Police really need to start enforcing the hands free policy, with major fines. (I realise that the laws are different, depending on the country, province or state, but common sense, is common sense.) No first chances either. Why? Because you shouldn't have been on your phone in the first place. Can you tell I have no tolerance for that crap?
No one was hurt, so that's good. Well, except the lady's bank account, but that's her problem. So I'm moving on, thankful that I woke up this morning no worse for the wear.
A really nice cop in Detroit helped us because we got lost. Told him where we wanted to go and he led the way in his police car. I think he was a little bored. Thanks, though!
Is it bad that every time I go to/pass through Detroit, I'm surprised at the amount of black (my people, if you don't know) people that I see? I'm not used to it. I grew up & now live in a very homogeneous (Caucasian) city. It's different for my eyes, that's all I'm saying. Although, I should be used to the different hues, since I spent 7 years in Windsor.
How do you feel about people talking/texting while driving? Or do you do that on a regular basis?
Till next time,
