I’m beginning to hate cell phones. Why has every state in the country not outlawed talking on the cell phone while driving? Oh right . . don’t tell me YOU can do it and not be distracted! How many times have you driven down the road and been almost hit or been driving behind someone slowing down or speeding up and you realize they’re on the cell phone.
Today I was on my way to Joplin to do a trunk show, detoured to run by the bank before I left town. There was this woman who was parked in one of the parking spots on the street, talking on the cell phone . . obviously thinking she’s the only one on the street. Just as I got even with her, she pulled out, and hit me. Neither door opens but worse, the front passenger door is ajar and can’t be closed. Scraped all the way down the right bottom of my car. I can’t drive the car now . . both wheel covers are ruined. I’m really mad. I’m aggravated that our legislators haven’t passed laws making it illegal to drive and talk on the cell phone and I’m mad that my car is all banged up and I’m mad that I missed my trip to Joplin.
Why can’t people just be responsible. This woman who hit me was driving an old, banged up Blazer and looked like she just got out of bed at 1:30 in the afternoon. What was so darned important that she had to be on the cell phone instead of paying attention to what she was doing?
I wasn’t hurt and I know it could’ve been worse but it didn’t need to happen.
