LA Traffic 🚘 has me like 🙄but then I remembered this... #TuesdaysWithMorrie. "Part of the problem, Mitch, is that everyone is in such a hurry," Morrie said. "People haven't found meaning in their lives, so they're running all the time looking for it. They think the next car, the next house, the next job.
Then they find those things are empty, too, and they keep running." Once you start running, I said, it's hard to slow yourself down.
"Not so hard," he said, shaking his head. "Do you know what I do? When someone wants to get ahead of me in traffic, I raise my hand . . ." He tried to do this now, but the hand lifted weakly, only six inches. " . . . I would raise my hand, as if I was going to make a negative gesture, and then I would wave and smile. Instead of giving them the finger, you let them go, and you smile.
"You know what? A lot of times they smiled back. "The truth is, I don't have to be in that much of a hurry with my car. I would rather put my energies into people."
