I love Lacey. I like the way that every place of business I might need to frequent is close to where I live.
However, what I do not like is that when I need to drive my children into the school parking lot (which is located on College Street) many of the people driving towards me in the opposite direction won’t slow down in order for me to enter it.
They don’t respect the law by obeying the speed limit, pretend to not see my turn signal flashing, indicating that I need them to stop, so that I may drop my kids off.
Sometimes they even speed up, as if them getting through the slow school zone via speeding is more important than me being able to take my children to school on time.
I thought the people of Lacey were kinder than that.
One would think they would remember that Monday through Friday, all school year long, there are a couple of school zones that they must pass through, and that they must be patient for other people to get their kids to school, since it is common courtesy.
I see many of those cars have that famous bumper sticker proclaiming that “others” are more important than they. Am I not one of those others.
