Bad Driver

On the way to see my mom today, a guy ran a red light and took a right turn just as I was approaching an intersection. No big deal because I approach every intersection as if someone was going to run the light. The right turn put him headed in the same direction that I was heading.
I noticed he had a handicap tag and a huge window sticker that said "GOD IS IN CONTROL".  He went about three hundred feet before he slammed on his breaks, came to a dead stop in the road before turning right no turn signal. He almost clipped a kid on a bicycle and a light pole.
I'm thought to myself, I wonder where God, since He was in control,  got his license?  I'm guessing that God has his hands full with so many idiots driving around these days.
This reminds me of a funny joke I heard years ago:
There was this drunk driving down the wrong side of the road when a preacher came around a curve and met the drunk in his lane. He instinctively turned the wheel to avoid a nasty head-on collision but the maneuver caused the preacher to flip end over end down an embankment.
The drunk saw the accident, pulled to the curve and stumbled down to check on the preacher. "Are you OK?" The drunk asked. "Yes the preacher said, I have the Lord as my co-pilot." The drunk said, "Well you better let him ride with me before you kill him!"
I hope my motor-vehicularly- challenged friend made it where he was going today without killing himself or someone else.


  1. It amazes me how half the people get where they are going, I guess they rely on other people looking out for them.

  2. All I have to say is I'm glad I had already sipped and swallowed that coffee I was drinking when I read the words: THE LORD IS IN CONTROL!!!

    I laughed!

  3. Reminds me of an apocryphal story:
    A woman hears a developing story on the news that a driver is headed the wrong way on a busy interstate highway. She calls her husband to warn him.
    Honey, be careful, there's someone driving the wrong way on the freeway.
    He said, "A driver? There must be a thousand headed the wrong way."
