“BEEEEEP!” screamed someone’s car horn.
“Was that directed at me?” I asked myself.
It happened again last week.
I had done nothing wrong.
I hate when someone honks their horn at me rudely.
On the other hand, sometimes I’m in the wrong.
More than once, despite my best intentions I try to drive my car into an open traffic lane only to have someone wisely interrupt me with a well-deserved warning, “BEEEEEP!”
I was the rude one. I did not properly consider the possibility of a blind spot.
“We know you hate change.” I was told that twice last week. Grrr…
Okay, it’s not the first time I heard those words. Usually it – “you hate change” – precedes an apology I need to deliver to my wife.
Each time someone says something that sounds like “you hate change” I’d like to defend my adaptability, flexibility, coping skills, resilience and emotional resolve. And, I might still be wrong.
I have a blind spot. I have more than one.
More about Blind Spots tomorrow.
I’ve heard that the “Blind Spots” series was a good one. If you want to catch them all, here they are:
