Texting While Driving
Call me a purist, but I stand by my decision to not live on my cell phone. I carry it with me frequently in case of emergency and for Mr. Bitsy to check in. (Yup, I miss him like crazy during the day & adore those lunch-time phone calls.)
This holiday season, I'm sure a lot of us will be traveling. Please, please, please stop texting while driving. I just don't understand this one. What could possibly be so important that you need to text while you are DRIVING?
The kids and I were out a few weeks ago and were almost side-swiped by a very large furniture truck. Guess what I saw when I passed said truck. That's right. The driver was texting. And very often, we'll be stuck behind someone who seems to be driving drunk only to find him or her chatting away on a cell phone.
My family & I would be very grateful if you'd put the cell phones, etc. away while you were driving.
