I'M HUMAN, JUST LIKE YOU. CELEBRITY DILEMMA # 1
I am going to start a series of entries with the title above just for fun... if not for us to ponder.
So here's to dilemma #1.
I CAN'T SEE YOU, I WAS CONCENTRATING ON THE ROAD!
Sometimes, as I am driving on the road, I notice some fellow drivers and their passengers will wave at me as they recognise that it was ADIBAH NOOR driving on the next lane.
I will usually wave back and hope that they'll be satisfied.
They did look quite exhilarated after that and I suppose, I've made their day somehow.
Sometimes, they'll start honking at me in the hope that I will look at them and wave back.
Sometimes, they honked too loudly that I get the shock of my life and will find myself trying to steer the wheel on track and not have an accident.
Upon realising that they were only excited to see me driving in the next lane, I will, like above, wave back and hope they're satisfied.
Sometimes, their car is in front of mine and they will start waving at me while looking at the rearview mirror.
Sometimes, their car windows are tinted and I have no idea what was going on.
And this time, I will usually pretend that I've not seen them as I wasn't sure if they were waving at me or if they were having an excited conversation with the other passengers in their car.
Sometimes, because I didn't see them and because I didn't wave back, some of them are quick to assume that I was snobbish.
When you see me on the road, please bear in mind that I am a road user just like you.... and we are all prone to have an accident if we are not careful.
So, the next time you see me, please don't honk and give me the shock of my life!
And if I don't see you or wave back, please forgive me..... I was only concentrating on my driving and I am not a versatile driver like you.
And if you feel like following me from behind, and when I try to run away from you, please don't think badly of me.
I don't know who you are and forgive me if I was only trying to protect myself from strangers who may turn out to be road robbers!
In a nutshell:
Wave at me, but when I don't see you and wave back at you, don't take heart.
