Ask Paul B: Slow Down, You Move Too Fast

Dear Paul B Readers,

It has come to my attention (and nobody else’s?) that we are all OBSESSED with time. I counted seven different companies whose pitch to we consumers is “we’re faster than anyone/everyone.” I see how people drive … speeding to the light, now that gas is so “cheap.” I see the impatience in lines at the grocery store, and I ask peeps “where in the heck is everyone rushing to?” Nobody has given me a reasonable, legitimate answer. Society has issued us a speed up card, and I don’t understand for the life of me why we don’t just ignore it. My Mother, until last year, would always take her sweet time, and it would drive me nuts. She actually beat me to her home a few times while driving 30 vs. my 45 m.p.h. I would take the highway and ostensibly get stuck in an accident-borne jam. I have taken to take my time in the past few years, because I believe that patient people, calm people, will love longer. Pick your spots, as I would always urge others. If you are going to make every incident and issue a Major Screaming MeeMee, then you’re in for a tough go, Chaps.

Besides, there are so many more Police on the street, I dare not go for #43 (*that would be moving violations-Yep, I have saved every single, solitary one.) BTW, I am NOT proud of them.

— Paul B.
