Do as I Say not as I Do

I taught both of my Daughters how to drive a stick shift. I do view this as a major accomplishment, much like climbing Mt Everts. It was a time consuming and arduous task that I had taken. It was tenuous at times, but myself and my Daughters survived to ordeal.

Almost 40 years later I was driving with my youngest daughter Kellie and I drove across the lane markings in a shopping mall parking lot. My Daughter in amazement said, Dad what did you just do? You drilled into my head that you never cross lane markings anywhere. You told me repeatedly that lane markings where put there for a reason and that reason was safety. Now I see you crossing the lane markings. What’s up with that/”

I looked at my daughter thought for a minute and then replied, “The reason I told YOU to never cross the lane markings was because one day when I am old and cannot see well I will cross the lane markings and I don’t want you to crash into me crossing the lane markings from the other direction.”
