Seen it all!

As I'm sure many of you have, I've seen people doing quite a lot of things while driving the highways and byways.

I've seen the "normal" things like people on the phone, smoking, putting on makeup, eating, etc. Saw a lady once with a cigarette, drink, and steering wheel in her left hand, cell phone under her left ear, bagel, eyeliner, and directions in the right hand all while driving a stick shift car.

I've seen people texting, reading novels, dancing a full-blown jig, etc.

I've even seen guys with their girl friends...*ahem*...lets just say the guys had permanent smiles on their faces!

But tonite I saw the strangest thing yet. Was driving home from work and came upon a guy driving a van. His left hand was holding the steering wheel and a sheet of music. His right hand was holding a trumpet (!). He was playing a little concert to himself while driving along at highway speeds.

Not something you see every day.

If I ever see things like that I lay on the horn and scare them. Some people are idiots.

i used to see a lady on my way to an old job 5 yrs ago or so that would be reading a book while driving, not even looking up.

i gotta say it, i see women doing more stupid things like that. putting on make up in their mirrors, last winter in a snow storm i was behind a woman texting while driving in a foot of snow.

guys are stupid to, but at least they pay attention when they're going 100 mph in a 45 zone. when guys are doing stupid things its cuz they're pushing limits, and think they can do it. women are just in la la land.
