Scalzi's Weekend Assignment #54...

Mr. Scalzi's Weekend Assignment #54: Tell us all a single piece of wisdom you've learned from personal life experience.  It can be a small thing, it can be a big thing, a simple tip or trick or the most important thing you've ever learned from life.  But whatever it is, you should be able to state it in one sentence.  That way people will remember it easier.
Extra Credit: Tell us: Would you have listened to your own bit of advice as a teenager? Be honest, now.
Here's my 'wisdom'...I actually felt I could contribute something this week!:
When you're approaching an intersection and the light turns green, SLOW YOUR CAR DOWN ANYWAY, AND LOOK LEFT AND RIGHT, to make sure some idiot hasn't decided to run their red light...and right into you...
I learned this one the hard way, of course...that was the only car accident I've ever been in that wasn't my fault!
Would I have listened to this advice as a teenager?  I WISH someone had told me this, since I was a teenager when it happened...Yes, I would have listened!


  1. Sound advice and very true.  I drive a lot for my job, and someone runs a red light every day!!!

  2. Very good advice!
    I like this weekends assignment, think i'll take a shot at it myself ;o)
    Love & Hugs,

  3. Very good advice. I always look now too since we had a close call with someone who ran a light. Stop signs and yield signs too. It always pays to drive defensively.

  4. Good advice!!!  And I follow it every time I am in the car!  Especially when Josh is with me.

  5. That's an excellent piece of advice, especially in this day and age when people are so prone to run red lights.  Lisa

  6. Now I'm wondering how many car accidents you've been in!!
