Doesn’t it make you bitter when you just want someone else to do your work for you, because you are lazy? Well, not only am I lazy, but I am incompetent. I don’t know anything about cars, except how to operate the windshield wipers. And even those I get confused with. Which button makes them go slow and which makes them go medium? How about really fast for those occasional monsoons? I ponder things like this not all. So when it comes to getting my oil changed I usually go to an oil change facility. But when I leave it seems like the car is even more messed up than when I got there. I wonder why….
Speaking of texting and driving, I was texting someone yesterday while going 103 and I was getting all these really bitter stares from other drivers who were wondering why I kept running over bikers. It wasn’t because I am bitter about them, (though I am), but because I was just trying to avoid a speeding red turtle shell. I didn’t want to get run over by the shell, so I was polite and collided with other cars instead. They kept waving their fingers at me, so I could tell they understood.
For passive aggressive people like me who have a hard time expressing themselves bitterly to the ones they are closest to (the car behind them), someone invented Bumper Stickers. They are many things, but mostly a good way to annoy other people when they are looking up from their cell phones. They are also a permanent way to make your car worthless for resale (Mondale for President 1984?). The biggest thing of all though, is that it is a way for people who aren’t funny to show that permanently.
And that, my Bitter People, is why I don’t pay attention when I am driving.
