Are You Neurotic Too? Or Is It Just Me...

Wednesday, July 17, 2013


I have to first admit to you that I am putting this post up for completely selfish reasons.

I am hoping that I am not the only person here that can tend to be a little neurotic. lol

I am hoping that you will read this and then tell me that you do the exact same thing and that I am not crazy.

I might be hoping for too much though on this one. haha.

I have to give you a little background first for you to completely (or at least a little bit) understand.

I think most people at one time or another make the statement "I am a good driver" and I think most of us believe it.

I won't make that statement today, but I will say that I haven't had a ticket since I was 16 and I drive cautiously never going over the speed limit.

Yes... for those who like to speed, I am that person you are cursing at when you want to go fast. lol

I usually have two toddlers in my car so I am always doing everything I can to make sure I am keeping them safe when I drive.

So here is where it gets weird... every time a cop pulls up behind me I PANIC!

I act as if I am in a movie and I start looking in my rear view mirror trying to figure out my next move.

I act as if I have stolen my 10 year old "Hunk of Junk" car and I look for my opportunity to bail.

As you can see in the photo above I purposely pulled over to the side of the road to let him pass me.

Now in all fairness I didn't see the Animal part until he passed me. lol

I probably wouldn't have bailed to the side of the road if I had seen that it was an Animal Control cop.

So I want to know, do you do this? Maybe on a smaller scale? Do you panic for a second and then let it go?

Are You Neurotic Too? Or Is It Just Me? I would love to know! :)


About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
