    Stupid People Tricks

    Ok, so this is more of complaint than a story but here goes. I go to work in the afternoon and it's just about time when everyone else is getting out of work. A little chaotic would be a good way to describe them. So, I'm driving and minding my own business. Then here she comes...

    Scary

    They really should ban cell phone while driving. This includes hand free, texting and internet use as well. I've had a lot of close calls from people driving in a dense urban area and ignoring their surroundings. These distractions cause a lot of wrecks and deaths. Cell phone...

    How Do You Deal With People Who Call You When They're Driving?

    I don't use cell phones when I'm driving but what stresses me is when people call from their cell phone when they are driving. Usually they're on the motorway because they see that as wasted time and they don't think they need to concentrate so much. Sometimes it's friends but...

    I think they are here.

    They should do more about it though! It's awful that you see phone's in a lot of driver's hands. Most of them claim they have to for work, but I don't think that should be an excuse! Their jobs should be required to provide hands free phones, if that is the case.
