Well, maybe that the owner's bias ... or perhaps he's really very stupid! It is dark, there are not lights on in the front room apart from a candle ... and Eliot sneaks up onto the sofa! Of course, I can't see him!
Ahead of me ... a learner in an HGV ... and it did look like the first time the driver had been on the road! Added to that, we were approaching a roundabout which seems to confuse many drivers ... and the poor learner wasn't at all clear about the correct lane to take.
Both the car beside me and I were giving plenty of space for error as the white line had been crossed a couple of times ... but the grumpy man behind me decided to sit on his car horn anyhow! What difference was one car length going to make to his journey time? What difference did blowing his horn very loudly make to the way things were happening?
It wasn't rush hour, there wasn't a great deal of traffic ... we did all get through the traffic lights at the first change ... so what was grumpy man's problem?
He wasn't driving an emergency vehicle ... I'm sure all of us would have made way for that ... it was just a pale coloured family car where he was the only occupant, a middle aged, grumpy man!
Perhaps he'd had a row at home and was taking out his mood on other drivers ... maybe he had something against blue cars ... or learner drivers ... or it might simply be that he's a person of very little patience and didn't like to see someone being given the benefit of the doubt ...
Getting all worked up about something that he couldn't do a thing about wasn't going to change anything. It possibly meant that he ended up with a knot in his stomach and felt angry at the "silly cars" ahead of him or the "stupid learner driver" ... but it didn't make the traffic move any faster at all! And I'm guessing that he didn't notice that it was a beautiful blue sky with warm sunshine on a chilly morning ... that the birds were singing and that we are all fortunate to be able to drive to where we want to go!
Perhaps it is time to watch the lettuce leaves grow and focus on the small things, the good stuff, and not get irritated by life's little frustrations.
Time to move the dog and go to bed!
