It is only 10am and yet there are already multiple contenders for my jackass of the day award:
#1 The woman who was texting while driving. Bad enough, right? But add to it that it is a snowy day, she was on a two lane, hilly freeway, with a semi truck in the lane next to her and a school bus in front of her and she had her kids in the car. Jackass.
# 2 The guy driving a stupid truck (regular truck but with GIGANTIC tires and a large pair of those horrible truck nutz things- I’m not linking to it, but you can google it if you have the good fortune to have not seen those in the wild) too fast, tailgating a school bus, again on a snowy freeway. Jackass.
#3 The woman carrying a screaming toddler with no boots or gloves on out to a snow covered car and then not retrieving the stuffed monkey that the screaming toddler (who was now trying to take his coat off so he could then try to take his pants off) threw into the front seat. She may have said “And that is why we don’t throw our monkey”, as though a semi-hysterical two year old was in the mood to listen to reason. Jackass.
#4 The TV weather reports who are, thus far, all to eagerly proclaiming our snow related DOOOOOOOMMM!!! and making me feel nervous about driving, even though it really isn’t all that bad yet. Jackasses.
There is a really good chance one of these jackasses was me, but don’t let that sway your voting. Who wins the jackass of the day award?
