No, not drunk driving:
I’m suggesting now that distracted driving is in the same category. People just don’t multitask behind the wheel as well as they think they do, and we should get up in their faces about it. If you’re talking to a friend and you realize they are driving a car, say; “Are you driving? Good bye” and hang up. And if you know someone who texts and drives, refuse to text them at any time until they stop doing it.
A car is no place for multitasking. It’s time to get Zen, folks: when you’re driving, just drive. Please.
And really, really don’t call the phone company to troubleshoot your cell phone while you’re behind the wheel. If it’s that important, find a place to pull over. I trust none of my readers are stupid enough to try to navigate cell phone menus, remove cases and batteries, and all that other stuff while also trying to navigate traffic, so pass it on: don’t make the poor rep you’re talking to listen to you kill or maim yourself and others. Don’t turn an annoyance into a tragedy. Okies?
Here endeth my lecture, but if you didn’t visit George’s post, go do it now. Unless you’re driving. In which case, what the hell are you doing in my cantina?
