The other week an elderly relative was driving through a neighborhood with which she was unfamiliar. She drove slowly, stopping to follow the instructions someone had written down for her. A young man who was driving behind her lost patience and passed her car, giving her the finger as he drove by.
What unmitigated gall.
We are losing any sense of decency these days as we have no patience for anyone who impedes our getting to our destination two seconds earlier. Let's be a bit more mindful of elderly drivers and let us regain some common courtesy when we drive.
If we have to wait for an old lady with a walker to cross the street, let's take a moment to be grateful and thank Hashem that we don't need to use walkers. And SMILE - you never know who is watching. You may even be on Candid Camera.
