NEED I SAY MORE?

The other day, as I was driving to Starbucks, I had to stop at a red light.  A truck pulled up beside my truck, in the lane beside me.  And a middle-aged lady motioned for me to roll down my window.  I figured I must have unintentionally violated her right-of-way, or that there was some damage to my tire.  But that wasn’t it at all.

“Where did you get those bumper stickers?” she asked.

She was referring to the “HANG UP AND DRIVE” bumper magnets on the back of my truck, but especially the much larger bumper stickers: two which read, “HANG UP AND DRIVE”, and one which read, “PUT IT DOWN, IT CAN WAIT.” 

The magnets I had gotten from Amazon.com, but the large stickers I had made on Zazzle.com.  So I gave her Zazzle’s website.

She nodded, in appreciation, then said, “My daughter was killed because of one of those things.”

All I could do was nod, in sympathy, as the light changed and we parted ways.

And I noticed a very large memorial decal on the cab of her truck which verified what she’d said.
