Today, as I was driving back to work from lunch (yeah, right... I WISH I actually got a "lunch" hour) I started making a list in my head, but it wasn't a very nice list. It was my: "Things that get on my last nerve" list. And here is what I came up with:
- People who hurriedly pull out in front of you, then go BELOW the posted speed limit.
- People who are in the left hand turning lane and go into my lane to make their left hand turn.
- People who wait to the last minute to conduct business and expect me to drop EVERYTHING because they are almost "out of time"
- People who don't make out their checks ahead of time and take 10 minutes to conduct a transaction that should only take about 2 minutes.
Can you tell I have an issue with people today? Yep, I do. But that's o.k. I can't do a thing about other people. I can't make them speed up or stay in their lane. I can't make people NOT procrastinate and I can't make people write their checks out ahead of time. Well, I guess I could suggest they do that, but some people may take that the wrong way. And, to tell the truth, I really don't mind trains. They are way better than semi-trucks.
What I can do is NOT get so stressed out over other people. I can control my actions/thoughts. So I need to start there. With God, I can do/overcome/de-stress anything!!
This picture just makes me happy. I edited it over at picnik. Happy Friday!
