With reference to my blog of yesterday https://noelene2014.com/2015/06/04/stop-drop/
This morning we arrived at the ‘STOP & DROP’ zone to find a car parked in the middle of two parking spaces which meant that one could not park at the back or the front of the car! No driver in sight!
I thought God was giving me a chance to redeem myself so I mentioned that I was going to park and wait for the driver to come out and then ‘politely’ ask them whether they could read and did they know that the sign said ‘STOP & DROP’ and would they like me to explain to them exactly what that entailed? My older daughter was horrified. I informed her I was being facetious but that I was going to wait and inform the person it was a ‘STOP & DROP’ zone. I would be polite.
She informed me that there was no way I could say something like that politely! That answer just proved that she knows me too well!
I remembered God’s words of the day before that this was an opportunity to
“practice self-control and not allow others to determine my attitude and reactions”
and so, much to the relief of the older daughter, I calmly drove off.
I have been regretting it ever since!
