This evening, I found myself in the rare position of passenger while running an errand. We had pulled up next to a young person, sitting behind the wheel of his car TEXTING (at a stop light). Cue me acting like his mom and actually yelling at him to put the phone away and pay attention, gotdammit! He put the phone away and apologized.
Have you ever caught yourself acting mom-like at strangers and scolding them in public? I mean, what came over me?
