What ARE you looking at?

Seriously. When a car is pulled over to the side of the road, when a cop has his lights on, and is tending to an accident, when two or more cars have hit each other and are blocking traffic, the best thing you can do is:

1. Keep driving, maybe slowing down a bit to navigate around the situation.
2. Honk and wave.
3. Brake heavily, come to an almost-standstill, and crane your neck, hoping to see some gore, you idiot.

The answer is not #3. I become irrate when #3 occurs, because two seconds after the sideshow, traffic clears up and moves normally. What slows traffic down and backs it up for miles is people acting like total clambakes, looking at NOTHING. Please. Don't be a douche.

In case anyone actually reads this...

here's something we can all do to help each other: don't spit. Especially on the floor of the boxing gym where I try to work out, free of other people's fluids. I don't like having to be careful where I put my bag because there are little piles of bubbly saliva in various spots on the floor. Is it not bad enough that the spin class instructor drips copious amounts of sweat in a spray-pattern around the speed bag where he sets up his bike? There's really no reason to ever spit except in case of a mouth-emergency. For example, you pick up a glass off of your desk, or off of the counter at home, that you think is filled with water that you had been drinking earlier, and instead, it has been replaced with urine. Then, feel free.

We do not know what we want, and yet we are responsible for what we are- that is the fact.
