Driving Rant…

Rear Hatch
This is my rant for today.  You may not like it, or think it is nice, but I don’t really give shit (you can tell because I used a bad word). It is mostly aimed at older people, but anyone that chooses to get behind the wheel of a car should listen up.

If the speed limit FEELS too fast for you, FEEL free to stay home. If you can’t MUSTER THE COURAGE to go even only as fast as is printed on those pesky little signs, then maybe it is time to hang up the keys.  I don’t expect everyone to go speeding along like I do, but I was just stuck behind a much older person doing 33 in a 45.  That is NOT EVEN CLOSE.  So, if you can’t push down just a little harder on that gas pedal and get your little pony moving up to the speed limit, stay off the big roads.

And by big roads, I mean anything with at least one lane going in each direction.

And while we are at it, those little lines that someone took A LOT OF TROUBLE to paint on the road are NOT a suggestion.  I am reclaiming my side of the road so you might want to be more careful about staying on your own side.

And the last thing…last time I bought a car….the last TWO times I bought a car, the blinkers were included.  Not some fancy extra like GPS or rubber floor mats or satellite radio.  They come with the car.  USE THEM.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
