Are You Reading?

I want to feel like the words I type here bring forth change.

Like I am making a tiny bit of difference.

I want to feel like I’m heard.

But I feel like I’m not heard.

Like I have never written a word, pushed publish, or tweeted out a status update.

If anyone had been reading my carefully placed words. on my beautifully designed blog, then I would not be stuck in traffic every night of the week.

Construction workers would only be working from 11:00am-3:00pm and 7:00pm – 5:00am.

There would be NO slow drivers in the fast lane and I would not see selfish drivers passing transport trucks, on the inside, before the massive beasts had a chance to haul their HAWGS back over to the slow lane.

If my universally known blog had been poured over, while at a coffee shop, I wouldn’t have watched vehicles drive on the shoulder of the road in order to get further in line… just to wait longer… for construction.

Fresh young hooligans on their crotch rockets and motorcycles would not be zipping in front of me in a traffic jam.

Drivers would be paying attention to whether they had turned off their signal light three hours ago, or not.

If my award winning writing had been printed off and passed around the lunch table I would not have to remind the entire population of the world that driving like assholes is a punishable offence.


A throat punch.

Because my previous warnings about distracted driving, driving over the age of 90, driving on the curb, grass, ditch, sidewalk, and/or shoulder of the road, were not taken seriously take this brass knuckled gullet jab as the official ticket.

Ticket to pain!

I get very stabby when drivers do not follow my rules of the road.

I trust this reminder won’t have to be sent out again.

    I experienced this very moment this morning!!! Shoulder-driving, horn-honking, bumper-riding idiots with drivers licenses.
    I’m so glad I don’t have to experience the 401 in the morning… but Hwy 15 is JUST as bad hahaha

    Commuting really brings out the most primal instincts in humans . . . bring us to our base level where we feel the need to fight for ourselves to hell with everyone else. Sigh.

    AMEN! Sister! I HATE crazy, bad, rude, slow, crazy, etc… drivers! It’s only triple and then some when my kids are in the car with me. Cars should come equipped w/a throat punch delivery system. 😉

    Let’s start a campaign. Bloggers Against Bad Driving.

    At first I was worried that you actually don’t feel heard in terms of your other messages. But yeah, you’re heard. (Too bad I’m not a bad driver.)

      I would never be upset with you!
      I’m sure you drive perfectly, and I love your blog.

    I can’t stand it when people drive badly either. I agree wholeheartedly with this throat punch!

      Thank you!
      I like it when ppl agree with me.
      I, of course, think I’m right 100% of the time, so when someone agrees with me it helps my case.

    LOL! I was going to say, “Of course I read and your words matter!” But since I’m not a bad driver, I know you weren’t talking to me. 😉

      September 23, 2011 | 5:31 pm

      That was the purpose of the title.
      To pull in kind hearted people with the emotion.
      Throat Punch!

    I’m sitting on the couch, so it wasn’t me.

    Besides, I’m from Texas. I’m automatically an awesome driver.

      If this is true then you are omitted.
      But I will have to google to see if its a fact.

      Because google is where the truth sits.

    I hope for their sake that this post is noted. Something really bad will happen if you have to say this for a 3rd time.

      I will drive to Reno and kick some serious bad driving ass.

    Can I hand this out to all asshole drivers? Ugh. Drives me crazy!

    • multitaskingmumma
      September 23, 2011 | 5:28 pm

      you may hand out a full bitch slap.
      There is also nothing wrong with a punch to the hood of their car.

    I think you’d make a great state trooper, or a police officer specializing in traffic offenses. Hee hee…

    Okay, point taken. I will not “drive on the shoulder of the road in order to get further in line” anymore. And if I do that, some mumma’s gonna throat punch me and it’s going to cause a lot of pain.

    There. You’ve made a difference already! 😉

    • multitaskingmumma
      September 23, 2011 | 5:27 pm

      OMG if you only knew what I really do for a living.

      Stay off the shoulder or else!

        Sheeeeet. You ARE a cop, aren’t ya? A parole officer?? Bounty hunter???

        Were YOU that officer who pulled me off the shoulder the other day, charge me on drug possessions, and put me in the county jail for 2 freakin’ nights?

        Shame on you!

    with words like “hooligans” and “crotch rocket”, i’d imagine you’ll get some spectacular spam.
