Let’s assume you are driving on the freeway, suddenly another vehicle veers to your side from the next lane forcing you to also veer sideways away from your lane. The other driver regains control and is back on its lane.
What will be your first reaction? Assuming you got three options.
A. You yell to the other driver, are you okay?
B. You yell, are you insane? Or say outrightly, you are insane or mad or stupid.
C. Ignore as though nothing happened, while muttering under your breath that the other person must be either mad, drunk, or just made a mistake.
Most often than not, option b is mostly used. We forget mistakes do occur and that could be us making that driving error tomorrow. Perhaps a little compassion won’t hurt. Let’s just hope the veering stunt leaves everyone unhurt.
Don’t veer off the road today.
