When you’re behind the wheel of a car, the only thing you should be paying attention to is the road. Sadly, all too often people are doing anything but. Lots of us have become experts at multitasking behind the wheel, and while changing the radio station and talking on the phone (hands free, of course) isn’t all that bad, there are some people who take such multitasking to the extreme.
A new thread on the anonymous Whisper app has folks confessing to the most outrageous things they’ve ever witnessed someone do behind the wheel, and it will make you wonder how there aren’t even more accidents on the road.
Outrageous things seen behind the wheel include:
- “This lady was doing her makeup and looking in the mirror with one hand and texting with the other. She was also speeding at 50 in a 15 max parking lot. A+ multitasking though, she didn’t crash.”
- “On the highway I saw just feet on the wheel! The guy had his chair fully reclined back, closed eyes and was steering with his bare feet. I was horrified.”
- “I saw my mom pull a reverse on the highway after she missed her exit. I unfortunately was tailgating behind her in horror.”
- “I saw a lady clipping her toenails going down the turnpike. Talk about gross and dangerous.”
- “Last week I saw a cop driving with Netflix on the computer next to him. How is that safe?”
- “The craziest thing I saw driving my road trip: Woman driving with a burger in one hand, drink in the other, cellphone held up on her shoulder. To this day I have no idea what she was using to steer the car.”
- “I witnessed an older woman on the freeway eating food with chopsticks and driving with knees. I got three lanes away from her.”
- “I just saw a lady braiding her weave…on the freeway. Yes she was driving.”
Well, here’s another great perk to being an Amazon Prime member. Amazon just announced they are offering a 5% Whole Foods discount to certain Prime members. The offer is only good for those Prime members who use Amazon’s Visa rewards card. The discount will be good for “everything from animal welfare-rated meat to sustainably caught wild and responsibly farmed seafood to a vast selection of local, Whole Trade and organic produce.”
A mother’s intuition is a powerful tool and a mom recently relied on hers and ended up saving her daughter’s life because of it. Laura Handley noticed bruises and red marks on her daughter Tazmin’s body, but she initially blew them off as her clumsiness. She also ignored complaints about night sweats and muscle pain, but then she read a tragic story that got her attention.
Handley read about 13-year-old James O’Mara, who died only a week after being diagnosed with blood cancer. His symptoms included bruises and red marks, like her daughter’s, and it left the mom with a feeling that something was definitely wrong. The next day she took Tazmin in for a checkup and learned that her daughter had leukemia.
"If it wasn't for me stumbling across that article, then we would never have gone to the doctors, and who knows whether or not she would have pulled through," Handley explains. "We knew it was full-blown leukemia, and were absolutely terrified.”
But now after two rounds of chemo and a bone marrow transplant, little Tazmin is in remission. And mom says hearing that was “just the best news” ever.
