Last night we were negotiating the dangerous, poorly planned intersection of U.S. Highway 82 and U.S. Highway 75 South when, from out of nowhere a car whizzed passed and darted in front of us in order to make the turn. If I had not reacted quickly and let off the accelerator we might have collided. It so happened that we were headed for the same restaurant and this car zipped into a parking place two cars down from the place we chose.

As we headed for the door we remarked that they must have really been in a big hurry since they almost ran into us. The driver apologized and said he had thought he had plenty of room and from that we were escorted to our table and they went to their table where we both enjoyed our meals.


The young couple finished before we did. They obviously move faster than we older folks in all phases of life. As they were leaving the young man came over to our table and again apologized for scaring us. We acknowledged his apology and then he said he’d picked up our check by way of apologizing.


We are so quick to expect bad manners from our younger adults now. When something like this happens we are surprised and we shouldn’t be. The majority of our young adults are friendly, nice and well-mannered; we just don’t hear about them. You know who you are, and we thank you so much for helping to give us hope for the future.
