My Speed, Your Speed.

Today, I witnessed the slowest, oldest driver. Apparently he was a very old grandpa, driving a CRV on his own. I felt really sad to see how such an old man was allowed to drive all by himself without any company. Which also got me thinking: when we see a very slow driver, we often get upset and honk the car badly hoping that the driver will just go faster. But hey, we should always try to find out first why he's driving slow anyway. What if the driver was just not in the condition to drive faster?

that exactly happened to me last week when we were on our way to the church is Mississauga. on the highway, there was this car (an expensive looking one) moving uber slowly that we literally honked and got irritated.
when we decided to go by the other side, we turned our heads and noticed it was an old guy. white hair, tired face. instantly we went from angry to sorry.

it's funny how life works.

here in melb, you'll find a lot of elderly people (around 70 or even more!) driving their cars without any companies.. but there was a terrible accident happened couple of months ago, when a 80-year-old grandpa lost control of his car and hit a restaurant nearby and there are victims, it's just too bad.. :(

or we can slow down ourselves, the world is always in a hurry and everything needs to have such a rushed feel to it. Why not calm ourselves down?

good thinking. and if a driver drives too fast, he might be wanting to pee so badly.
