When my kids were younger, and I had 3 kids in 3 different schools, (yep, high school, jr. high and elementary). It was always a mad rush in the morning driving them to school. One morning I was speeding and got a ticket (only my 2nd one in over 20 years of driving, but first ever speeding). I decided to go to a stand up comedy driving school. When he asked what all of our tickets were for, 70% were speeding, which he thanked us for, so he could put food on the table for his family. However, one lady, who was a mom, said, “But I have to rush every where to get kids to places on time.” He stood there pointing his finger at her and shouted, “Lady, you are undisciplined.” He didn’t know it, but he was talking to me!
I finally got more organized in the morning, and took control of watching the speedometer often to stay at the speed limit. Being late became rare, and being a much more disciplined driver has made me grateful to be called to accountability.
