Remember when you were 15? So excited to get your drivers permit? Practicing with your parents was fun for awhile – but then you just wanted to get your license so you could drive by yourself.
After a year or 2 of driving with a licensed adult you finally got to take that test and get a license in your hands. It was the best feeling in the world!
Now you could go and do whatever you wanted! Right?
There were curfews. No friends allowed in the car (or just one). You had to run errands for mom. You had to chauffeur your siblings around too. There were too many rules and you didn’t understand them at all.
Well finally as an adult, in my new neighborhood, I get it. I understand why I was not allowed to have friends in the car with me. They are distracting. Distracting enough to cause accidents.
Why do I now understand this? Don’t ask.
