Whilst sitting at an intersection in my car the other day, I noticed a van with business details written on it – offering blind (as in window coverings) repair and cleaning. As I have timber blinds on every window in my house, my attention was grabbed. I turned through the intersection ahead of the van, and then for the next 10 minutes on the winding, single lane road he proceeded to sit on my rear bumper (I was doing the speed limit!), driving way too close. When the road widened closer to town, he screamed past, and then proceeded to cut in real close ahead of another car and sit on the bumper of some other poor motorist.
I came very close to phoning the mobile number proudly displayed on the back of the van and letting him know what I thought of his driving… but decided he wasnt worth the bother.
But I will vote with my money by keeping it firmly in my bank account. He can take his business elsewhere – I’ll clean my own blinds.
Do you vote with your money? Do you support good community citizenship? Do you avoid those you see driving like idiots on the roads? And if YOU have display advertising on your vehicle – what does your driving say about how you run the rest of your business and your life? Would you do business with someone who drove like you do?
