Tumble outta bed

And stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawnin', stretchin', try to come to life
Jump in the shower
And the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the streets
The traffic starts jumpin'
And folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Workin' 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by
It's all takin'
And no givin'
They just use your mind
And they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

...Sorry, was Channeling Dolly Parton for a second there.

I've been noticing that people seem to be on a much less concerned for their fellow man nowadays.

(Yeah, what rock have I been under, right?)

It's the little things that seem to be even more prevalent.

Today, I saw someone on the Freeway that was trying to get over to the right lane. Behind him, was a car that wanted to get by, but couldn't, since the slower moving truck was in the way.

So, the truck tries to go over one lane, to let the faster moving traffic pass by. It's the considerate thing to do, and would make everyone's day on the freeway go a lot better.

But he can't.

There's a car behind him and to the right, going just fast enough that the guy can't get in.

So, traffic begins to build up, and the guy on the right still doesn't see what he's doing. He just doesn't want to let the truck in ahead of him. I don't think that it was any kind of malicious intent or anything, just an example of the kind of thoughtless thing that I'm talking about. A major inconvenience was caused because one person didn't care enough about his fellow man to give him space.

Yeah, it's that sort of thing that's been bothering me lately.
