Dear Fellow Road User

Dear Fellow Road User,

Yes, I know you’re a pedestrian and that I have to give way to you. Could I just suggest that you give me a chance to see you?

When I’m driving on the highway and I see the school bus is stopped picking up kids I do slow down, even if I’m not required to.

But when you step out from in front of the bus and onto the 100kmh road then, no matter how much I’ve slowed down, you scare the shit out of me.

Maybe you could take the time to walk to the back of the bus so that approaching traffic can see you.

Just saying.





This is my first entry in a Thursday Special. I’m not entirely sure I’ve done justice to the philosophical principles of “deconstruction”, but here it is.

I’m starting to think about packing for our upcoming holiday, so I “deconstructed” one of my outfits.

Don’t be in such a hurry to die!

Dear Fellow Road User,

I’m more than happy to share the road with you and your push bike … as long as you obey the road rules too.

But when you come flying round the corner on the wrong side of the road and without a helmet, don’t look so surprised when I give you a filthy look. You’re lucky you didn’t get a ride in an ambulance … or a hearse. On most other days I’d have already been all the way over to the left ready to turn the corner and you’d have become my new bonnet emblem.

Don’t be in such a hurry to die.
