shut up and drive!

i like to think myself as the pro when it comes to driving, since i was 16/17yrs, whenever it was since i was bold enough to sneak out with the car, i've never had an accident. i've been called a rough rider, someone said kind of like rough on the edges smooth on the surface(watever that means), i love speed, well thats when i'm the source of the speed, and i'm driving by myself(me alone in a car brings out the roadrunner in me).my favorite me joke is saying the only time i would have an accident is if i happen to own a hummer,cos i'd keep driving it into walls and fences delibrately, i hate the car to bits and would derive absolute pleasure in seeing it ruined.(the car would be a gift by the way)
theres all this awareness in the media of the dangers of multi tasking while driving,novembers' edition of readers digest gave some horrid details and facts of DUI, and the current issue of american edition of cosmopolitan mag had a story of 4 young girls, fresh out of high school who perished in a car crash, there's evidence that a text message was sent by the driver of the vehicle at the time of the fatal crash, but no proof as to if that was the cause...

i pride myself on being a suave driver, and an intelligent one too,parallel parking aint nothing on me(round of applause here) i'm one of those who multi task while driving, i create playlist on my ipod or search for songs, eat , make calls, text chat, look sideways at the passenger seat to smile for the camera...or if i have a bright idea i quikly pick up my pen,put the notepad on the steering and i'm jotting and driving same time, and when my lil' angels are in the car with me, i'm constantly looking back to check out what they are up to, playing games with em and bending down to pick up stuff...and of course there is the occassisonal makeup sessions(NOTE: not makeout sessions, havent tried that yet).
with me and most chics,i'm guessing the rear view mirror is more of a face view mirror, how many times have i reversed while staring in the mirror only to realise its my face staring back and not the rear...its a miracle i've never run into a lil' child or a curella's brand new jeep while staring at myself...now that would have been an eye opener.
i hate to admit it but there have been a couple of DUI's,i prefer to drive myself home after a party(not like i party much)i'm more alert then and my friends trust me enough to deliver us home safely after our time out, but it doesnt matter how safe i can be, its wrong, i'm feeling its alright cos i can be safe, but what of the others who think its alright too and end up loosing their lifes and taking that of others with em' all because like me, maybe they felt they were safe.

i've realised it doesnt matter that i've never had an accident, from the way i've been going, maybe it'd be someday and i wouldnt have a second chance to learn from that mistake...(i know i've seen myself crash a few times...remember in a previous post'weird stuff" i said i kind of see things and i think maybe God's trying to show me what might have been)
i've got a friend who loves to put his screen down when he drives, to impress the ladies? i wouldnt know, cos it really doesnt make sense that u're driving and watching a movie same time. and another who almost had an accident with me in the car cos he was searching something out on his PDA for me...thinking back all i can say is WOW...that'd have been fatal, and one who prides himself on being called SPEED cos he's mad crazy when it comes to driving, another chic who just loves to give the guys a run for their cars, sort of proving that 'my car may not be hot as yours but i can make it work better than you can handle yours'...only it was my car she loved to use to prove that. the other who loves to give me driving sex tales, fact or fiction, it doent matter, it bores down to unneccesary risk(what happens if u crash and die when being all kinky...)

i hate using handsfree devices, but i'm going to try or learn to use the speaker, i'll put on my make up before i start moving, i'll wait till i'm packed before sending txt msges, i wouldnt indulge my nieces anymore by letting them drive with me without their seatbelts on neither would i let anyone of em who's been good to seat on my laps while driving(i'll find another treat for them), my rear view would be used for what it is(hopefully i wouldnt be viewing anybody's rear lol)

hope y'all try to limit your multitasking while driving...lets keep ourselves alive a lil' bit longer aight?


this pics says it all for the guys

  4. hi kimpossible, checked it out already.

    freakshow, six months you say? remember a joke i read, this lady was stopped by the police, shes like officer was i driving too fast..and he says, no, u were flying too low.
    so u predicton might just come through, while u fellas play ur psp, we'll get our groove on waxing our legs, doing sit ups and shaping our eyebrows.

    carl dear, if u were driving a hummer when the accidents occured then i'd give u kisses and hope gates are built on the highways.
    if rock brings out the beast in u what tames that beast?

  7. OMG! I am so guilty of multi-tasking as I drive. I was actually riding with KC (she is like my lil sis...she is 18) and that girl has two cell phones. She was literally text messaging the entire time on both phones. Then at one point she got a call on one of the phones and was talking on speaker phone with that phone. And she had the Navigation system on speaker phone on her other phone. GO FIGURE! I am not sure how she did it. I was watching her and could obviously tell she was pretty skilled at this and that it was nothing to her. I was thinking to myself, "Did you just see yourself swerve in the other person's lane?" But, I didn't want to talk and add more to what she already had going on. All, I could say is LAWD protect us to myself.

    They are supposedly coming out with a law in 2008 that we all have to have head pieces now. I ALWAYS drive with my bluetooth in my ear. However, it is quite baffling when I walk in stores and people always ask "are you talking to me?" LOL!

    That should be your next blog Fantasy Queen: The 10 Most Irritating thing or does hearing someone talk on their cell in the grocery store, mall, etc irritate you. I was in the store the other day talking on my cell and a lady actually asked me to please get off the phone because I was annoying her. She SCREAMED it at me.

    Okay, enough of my rambling.

    Have a good weekend chica!

  9. I like. I am glad you are willing to change ur ways regarding driving. A lot of accidents happen just because of texting.

    I cant lie, i still speak on the phone when i am driving but i have stop texting. i dont even do it when i stop at a red light.

  10. kim, KC must be a super hero, doing all that and not rashing into anything.
    i hate the bluetooth thingy too,i dont mind people talking in stores(i'm guity here)altho it gets annoying when its obvious they are putting up a show...

    carlang the perv is been unleashed.

    allied, its a good thing u're able to stop texting while driving, was driving yesterday and it took a lot of self control not to pick my phone up when msgs kept coming in...i'm learning fast that safety precautions come first.

  14. you hate hummer, why now?
    loved the post, but reversed the roles in the cartoon.
    my dad always nags my mum about her driving each time she's in the driver's seat even after 30 years of driving. her mistake is that she let him teach her how to drive in the first place.
    if they ever sell such seat belts, i'll buy her one as a betday present am sure she would be very grateful.

  17. Jedną wśród branży, które teraz mają bardzo istotną rolę na gospodarczym rynku jest księgowość.
    To ona stała się odpowiedzialna za ewidencję poszczególnych operacji
    transakcyjnych na rynku, które mogą być wyrażone w wartościach
    pieniężnych. Ona również jest podmiotem zainteresowania działających przedsiębiorców, jacy zdecydowali się
    na stworzenie własnej firmy. Ostatecznie wszyscy z nich są przymuszeni do
    rozliczeń z instytucjami państwowymi, jako część krajowej gospodarki.
    Ujmując ją jako dziedzinę nauki można ją
    rozpatrywać na kilka różnych typów.

  18. Dzisiaj biura księgowe nie muszą upominać się na niewielką ilośc klientów.
    Zgłaszają się do nich w głównej mierze przedsiębiorcy, którzy prowadzą indywidualne
    działalności. Takich przedsiębiorców jest dzisiaj na rynku
    gospodarczym naprawdę sporo. Zarządzając oraz obsługując na własną rękę działalność, nie da się
    o wszystko zatroszczyć się osobiście. Mając to na uwadze korzystają oni z usług oferowanych na rynku, jakie okazują się doskonałym wyjściem.
    Jedną z branży, która zajmuje się obsługą takiej firmy jest konkretnie
    rachunkowość oferująca możliwości księgowe,
    która ma czuwać na zgodnością finansów w firmie.
