Traffic Responses: Guest post by Wynn Anne

I am enjoying myself in Cuba, but didn't want to leave you all alone. I know how it is. So, I invited my good friend Wynn Anne from Wynn Anne's Meanderings to come and do a guest post. I'm thrilled because she said yes. Enjoy and then pop over to her blog to read about her 11 month old 55lb puppy, Kane. He's gorgeous.  Without further ado, here is Wynn Anne.
The lovely Wynn Anne

The other evening, I was stopped at an intersection because, although the light was green, there was not enough space behind the car ahead of me to ensure that I would clear the intersection before the light turned red.

I HATE blocking intersections. I've been known to honk at people who do so.

Well, today, while I was thus stopped, I got honked at by the car behind me. Just as he honked, the cars ahead of me started moving, so I moved.

But at the same time, I was all:

Seriously. Cool. Down.

And it struck me that, when I honk at other drivers, I intend for them to hear this:

And then, after recognizing the truth in that, I expect them to say this:

Thank you.
But, on reflection, they're probably thinking:

So I probably just need to:

I'm going to try to keep this in mind next time I encounter a stupid driver.

Wynn Anne posts regularly over at Wynn Anne's Meanderings. Sometimes, she's funny on purpose. You can also find her on Facebook.


  1. Ella used to give bad young drivers the "Mother" finger (as opposed to the "Trucker" finger. If you wag your index finger at them, they know they are being reproached by an older responsible adult and it is harder for them to get angry. Of course, doing this and then making a left turn without signalling is not cool.

    1. I like that. I'll have to try the "Mother" finger.


As much as I like to hear myself talk, I like to hear from you too!
