drunk driving

It’s quite frankly clear

The roads are populated

With vast ignorance!


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    So true! I’m always saddened to hear of fatalities still happening due to this ignorance.

    This is very true…sad…but true. 😦

    I came all too close to losing all three of our girls in separate accidents within about a nine-month period. The worst one was hanging upside down by the seatbelt, and ending up walking out of the ER with a scratch on her toe. To our knowledge, only one was caused by drinking (a different vehicle). God was merciful!

  4. The call, ‘When you drink don’t drive; when you drive, don’t drink’ holds true for all times.

  5. Very true. I still don’t understand how someone can drink themselves into a state of stupor, then go driving.

    Yes, and sometimes it is me.

      Hi, Meredith. I don’t think we’ve met before, but I do appreciate your comment on my haiku, Drunk Driving. I am sometimes amazed that there are not more DUI tragedies than there are. So many people drink, and I’m sure most do not think they are impaired – at least not when they are impaired. But isn’t that a big reason to drink – to zone out, to relax, or in some way dull the senses which slows reflexes. I don’t know. I’m just talking.

  7. Meredith says:

    I don’t drive drunk just dumb.

    When Oneta writes, the nail says ouch – then pierces the conscience of the reader, in one clean stroke.

    True. I try not to drive late at night because of it.
