- Car Safety & Safe Driving
Drinking Caffeine and Driving Equal Disaster
Note: This hub applies to me. It may or may not apply to you. Also, I am talking about drinking caffeine as in COFFEE.
I thought I would talk about how drinking caffeine and driving are a bad combination for me. First of all, drinking caffeine is a no no for me. It makes me irritable and anxious. So, you combine that with driving and you potentially have yourself a dangerous situation....driving while very anxious. It's torturous! And not in a good way.
I also wrote a poem (click here to read the poem I wrote! It's kinda funny!)
I think this hub is just a reminder to me, and maybe you as well, that you have to be careful and not overdo things or put yourself in uncomfortable situations that can do more harm than good.
Why was I so passive?
I don't know why I'm being passive or passive aggressive. I usually am very assertive but it's hard to explain to people that you get stressed from driving.
Okay, well it was a one-in-a-hardly-ever kinda thing..where I guess it was just nice of me to do..to get me and my friends to a memorial for someone we all knew...but what would have made things better?
Well, for one I wouldn't really have been able to drive without the coffee- cause I would have been sleepy so...
I could have politely said no when the second person asked so that it would have been easier or I could have cancelled or asked someone else to drive but it's hard when you're the only one, or one of the very few of your friends who drive.
Don't get me wrong, I like to drive sometimes. Just not long distance after coffee.
I guess the purpose of this hub is to figure out what I could have done to have made things easier. By now, I suppose this hub could be considered silly or mundane or not very important but what makes us do the things we do? Do you find yourself being passive or doing similar things with occasional bad results? Is it a part of life. Surely we cannot expect things to go perfectly smoothly all the time!
Perhaps you have some good feed back for me. Either way, it felt good to talk about why this happened to me today. Most of the time I live a VERY peaceful life, so I feel bad when it doesn't go as well as I would like.
