So I ventured outside today by myself. Before I get negative comments about how I should be at home on the couch, please know all I had to do was 1.) go to the mailbox and 2.) go to the bank. The bank is literally one well-placed golf shot from my house, and yes, I drove to both the mailbox and the bank.
Anyways, what a crazy world out there! I attempted to make a right hand turn on red and was almost broadsided by a woman in a large white SUV making a U-turn. While driving into the ATM machine at the bank, another car totally cut me off. In an effort to cut my losses, I decided to hit Burger King for a Jr. Whooper (since making a right is easier than making a left turn) and almost got hit again (!!) at a four-way stop.
I don't need this stress. My ten-minute errand run turned into a stressful, death-around-the-corner dodgefest. I am camping out on my safe, accident-free couch for the rest of the afternoon. At this rate, I'll be using one tank of gas for the entire summer.
