day 171: short cuts take longer

There was major construction on the old state highway this morning. Not being the most patient person, I sat in traffic 3 or 4 minutes and then pulled a U-turn in order to take a back way. Turns out the back way just led me to the same intersection, only from the other angle. I sat there 10 minutes watching as my old traffic buddies passed through right in front of me.

When will I ever learn?

I hate it when that happens.

Why are we in such a hurry to save just a couple of minutes???? I do the same thing and then I am mad at myself. YOUR not alone!!!

I do that at the grocery store. Think the line next to me is faster, so I jump, and we all know what happens then. (sigh)

I am always doing this, too. My impatience almost always ends up costing me in the end.

If your anything like me, the answer is never, sadly.

I've so done that!

This is a lesson I have trouble with as well.
