Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to do something kind for someone that bugs you.  I did that, but frankly, I don't want to disclose all the details.  It went well.
This week's challenge is to be a patient driver.  This was actually suggested by a reader:
This morning I had to run an errand, and to be honest, I'm not a fan of driving. I'm especially not a fan of crossing the street when there's a TON of traffic. On top of that, I needed to turn left, and the people GOING left had a red light. More and more traffic was coming. I was getting irritated. To my surprise, a man actually stopped pretty far back to let me in.

I was so happy. I even, out loud, said "Oh that was so nice of him!" and I think I thanked him at least three times.

Then I thought of you and your Wake Up Wednesday. Maybe a theme could be to "be a better driver." Let someone cut infront of you, don't drive in the left lane unless you're passing, don't cut people off, etc. I don't know. Just a suggestion! :)
I can definitely work on that one myself.  I also hate driving and I can recognize my impatience by the fact that whenever we are stopped at a light or stop sign Baden pipes up from the back seat and says, "Come on, dude!"  He's heard me that from me a bit, I guess :)  Whoops!
So, did you get a chance to do something kind for someone that bugs you?  I'd love to hear about it!  Thanks for being here.
