This Morning, I Hung a U-Turn

The traffic was thick this morning, as it is every Christmas shopping season. I needed to pull out of a parking lot. When the traffic was clear one direction, the light on the next street changed, bringing about twenty vehicles from the other way. I finally got sick of it and my impaired mind directed me to pull into the turning lane, then hang a U-turn. Did I almost cause a car accident? No. Did other drivers get upset about this insanity? I don't know and I really couldn't care less. I made it home safely, without running over someone else. From today forward, Jay has inherited the privilege of bucking the Christmas holiday traffic.

One direction the traffic was clear, so that's where I drove. No cars were coming.

@RebeccasFarm I won't go out into that rat race again, until Christmas is over.

Someone towing a trailer and with three kids in the back crossed in front of us and we really had to brake hard to avoid running into him. People really get impatient sometimes.

You need to be careful out there! If you don't need to go out in the shopping morass, you probably shouldnt.

You are absolutely right, it's not safe driving out in that holiday traffic! I'm staying home, until after Christmas, unless Jay wants to drive.

It can be a madhouse out there during Christmas shopping. Glad you made it home safe and sound.

I was so frustrated, trying to get out of a parking lot. This wasn't a normal reaction, I usually just wait.
