I was in San Diego County recently and I was in my car looking for an electronics store when suddenly this truck and trailor (gardener?) shot by me on the right and he was leaning his head out the window shouting obscene words and making obscene gestures and I wondered what had made him like that. All he gained was being in front of me at the next signal but boy, was he boiling over. I felt sorry for him, sent him a warm mental hug, and hoped he would feel it.
What put such a destructive spin on an otherwise beautiful day?
Other than the obvious level of stress caused by a shortage of money or an angry spouse, I believe it begins at home. My guess whatever caused the stress/anger/frustration can be prevented. Can road rage can come from a little thing like not being able to find one's car keys or
- They tripped on a toy left on the stairs and couldn't find the bandages to stop the bleeding of their elbow then had to go change clothes
- Or a blue sock was paired up with a brown sock because most of the lightbulbs are burnt out in the bedroom?
- How about had to stop at the gas station to fuel up because the road rager did not have time to stop last night because he/she was running late all day.
The list can go on and on and on but my point here is being organized, clear of clutter, and prepared for unforseen circumstances has its rewards...all of which a home stager offers.
Could the answer to eliminating road rage be as obvious as living in a professionally staged/decorated/organized home? That is what I am thinking!
