Driving in Alabama
I learned to drive in Massachusetts and fought the crowded roads of Northern Virginia and thought I had seen a lot of things on the road. The local Alabamians and Tennessee folk drive in their own unique style, but Sunday took the cake. I was behind a minivan in the Loews' parking lot with a "Hang Up and Drive" bumper sticker. A fine sentiment as I often think that people here believe the car won't move if they aren't talking on their cell phones (a variation on Ford Prefect's theory about humans and their mouths). Unfortunately Mr. Opinion then proceeded to run a STOP sign and almost hit somebody. It was most hilarious!!
