Don't Do This While Driving Post

Things NOT to do while driving and especially not at a long stop light. Just when you think you've seen it all (every form of make up being applied, texting, guys shaving with an electric razor, removing curlers from hair, changing clothes, picking one's nose, examining the results, checking one's teeth and hair and so on). Today, I saw this. I pulled up to a new silver Lexus at a notoriously loooong stop light and when I glanced to my left, there in the Lexus was a thin-ish, 60-ish woman with a white-blonde bob haircut. Are you ready?

She was plucking the hair off her chin!!! LLLLLLOOOOOOLLLLLLL! It went on for the whole light. Not only using the visor mirror, but the rear view mirror, angled for a better view. There she sat, tilting and turning and with a tweezers PLUCKING her chin!!! She didn't even have the grace of tinted windows!

I have NEVER in my entire life seen any thing like this. I was dumb-struck. Actually, in retrospect, I felt sorry for her...not having enough time to get "ready" before whatever she was on her way to. So lesson learned:  relegate all grooming to the bathroom or at least your house. What a sad memory of an unknown person to have.

Do you carry a tweezers with you? Why? Have you ever seen this before???

I read this on Corey's blog, and had a good chuckle myself! Reminds me of the Jerry Seinfeld episode!!!

Hi Dawne,
Glad it gave you a laugh. I, myself, am still amazed! She was so utterly oblivious to anyone around her! Hadn't thought of the Jerry Seinfeld show in ages! One of my favs, among many was the "Soup Nazi". Still grin when I think of it! Checked out your blog and it looks wonderful. :) Thanks for leaving your comment!

Not in a car, BUT I was at my local coffee shop one day earlier this year, sitting by the fire (much earlier this year, I guess - LOL) when another regular came in, plopped down in a chair across from me, pulled out her makeup mirror and tweezers, and began plucking away at her chin, too.

I was shocked. I just sat there and stared at her. She then proceeded to wipe said hairs and tweezers on the arm of the chair. BLECH! I was completely transfixed and couldn't get up and leave, much as I wanted to.

Sorry to see you've gone on hiatus, just when I have found you. :) (Here from CrazyAuntPearl/Laurie's place.)

Hi Keri,

Here I thought I had to be the only person ever to witness this! LOL! But your story of her wiping it on the arm of the chair is beyond imagination. Just gross! What are these people thinking?! I know, isn't it wild how you can't look away? I think it's because it's such an incomprehensible thing to imagine doing in public and yet there it is...before one's eyes!!

My vacation is just a little one, I'll be back in the next day or so! :)

Thanks for sharing your experience!

P.S. Love the sub-header on your blog "My sanity is HANGING BY A THREAD"!
