Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone. How was your weekend? I hope you had a good one. I spent yesterday in Montreal with my older daughter. It made up for not having seen her on Mother's Day. It was a glorious summery day and we had a lovely time. She's such an amazing young woman and I'm so proud of her. I look forward to hooking up with her again.

I left early in the morning yesterday and it was quiet on the highway. The ride in was great aside from the few miles/kilometres of dealing with one annoying driver who kept speeding up and slowing down and speeding up and slowing down. She'd pass me, get in front of me and then slow down. So I'd have to pass her to continue at the speed I was going. Then she'd pick up the speed, pass me again, drive in front for awhile and then slow down. And speed up. And pass. And slow down. You get the picture. There's a thing called 'cruise control'. If you set it, you'll be consistent with your speed and not be a nuisance. She obviously hadn't set hers. I'm not the only one on the road she did this to. There were others ahead and behind me that had to deal with her inconsistency. Occasionally I run across drivers like this. What can you do?

Let's get to some funny stuff.







Have a great day!

  3. In middle school we were behind one lady who'd constantly slam on her brakes for no apparent reason. Both my mom and I flipped her off. Then my mother got mad at me for doing the same thing she did.

    1. That's it, Betty. It was very unsafe the way she was driving. I hope she's not on the highway regularly.

  9. Nice that you saw your daughter even though you had to put up with a jerk driver. loved the cartoons today. U alwasy find good ones. I saw one recently I could so relate to - "I am not the kind of person you would want to put on speaker phone." There was no cartoon just words.

    1. Annoying and dangerous! This type of driver should not be on the highway at such high speeds. She'll cause an accident!

  16. Your C&C always make me laugh, Martha. I'm glad that you had a lovely time with your daughter! It's beautiful and springlike here in Colorado, too. We've had some snow and rain over the past three weeks that I have been home, so everything is green and growing. This is the longest stretch of time that I have been home in close to a year, and I am enjoying it very much. Wishing you a great week!

    2. You're hanging in there, Martha! Sometimes I feel like I'm clinging to mine by my fingernails, but I haven't let go completely yet.

  19. Knowitall prescriptions! HA! No one I know is out of that one, they must be double dosed!!

  20. I'm glad you got a chance to spend time with your daughter. I know exactly the kind of driving you described. It's like they are afraid someone will be ahead of them?

    1. Could very well be, Tina. It's inconsiderate but also dangerous to drive like that.
