Is it wise to honk at a police officer? I really wanted to honk in frustration at the police officer that didn't realize the light had turned green and he should move. I decided it was better to sit there through the light than honk at the police. He finally realized and moved. Of course he was speeding down the road after that. I caught up to him at the next light where I was turning. He must of decided to turn as well and swerve into my lane ahead of me. Again, probably not wise to honk at him in frustration. I decided that it was better to have him in front of me acting crazy then behind me where I could get a ticket. He eventually got his head on straight and was driving better. Sadly, I think it was the person in front of him trying to avoid a ticket that had him following the speed limit. I was never more happy than when he decided to turn, using his signal appropriately. Way to go, police officer!
Then after I calmed my tendency toward road rage, I was thinking of how we hold people up to certain standards. I hate being held to societies standards for teachers or how a few seem to be what is considered the norm. I think I should learn a little more patience with the police or at least the ones that happens to be driving in front of me on Monday mornings that I decide to skip my delicious chai tea.
