~~ Friday’s Hunt v.4.09 -- "I" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of September 1st: 
(1) Starts with "I"; (2) Bowl; and (3) Desire

(1) Starts with "I":  "I" is for Idiot Drivers.  About half of the auto accidents are caused by Idiots.  More than half of the improper parking is caused by Idiots.
(Previous posts on parking,
(The only correct definition for Idiot is now "a stupid person."  An archaic definition was "

a mentally handicapped person." I hope my use of that word doesn't offend anyone reading this.  You may take issue in your comment.)

(2) Bowl: "Bowl haircut" ~~ Some of the kids in my school got teased for their bowl haircuts.  Generally those were given by a parent, usually the dad.  I was lucky, my dad bought some hand clippers (we didn't have electricity) and cut my hair with them, and Mom cut his also with them.  

Dad did a pretty good job, I never got teased.  See picture above, I am the boy in bib overalls, second from the right.  This was probably a 6th grade school picture.  I was the only one in the 6th grade.  And about half of us were cousins.


(3) Desire: 'Desire' equals 'want'.  I like the Rolling Stones' song, "You don't always get what you want" (but you do get what you need).  One of my favorite songs.  The  Lyrics: (below)

Idiot is a good word to describe many drivers. We had a scare coming home from the boat last Tuesday. He wanted in our lane to make a turn, but there wasn't as much room as he thought. That didn't stop him though. He didn't hit us, but it was really close.

Glad you did okay during the hurricane. Many homes were underwater. Frightening.

Have a fabulous day. ☺ are right, there a bunch of "I"diots drivers out of the roads. I only wish that I had enough hair for a bowl cut. Yep, if you try sometimes you get what you need!
Sometimes I wish there was a word that adequately labelled these idiots! Bowl hair cuts - a great take on the prompt.
Idiotic drivers mostly think that they are especially clever !!
Oh, I have plenty of names for the folks that create issues on the road. Mostly they are folks that believe they have to be first no matter the cost to others. My son wore an almost bowl cut as I was the hair cutter for him for several years. We humans tend to get wants and needs confused at times.
I love your example for idiot parking. LOL Cute school picture. Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great rest of the week!
Great post!
That's a new parking issue! Maybe they were hoping to start a trend and put an end to parallel parking. Looks like the boys were outnumbered in that school pic. I don't remember ever hearing that song, but I wasn't a big fan of the Rolling Stones.
I love looking at the old b/w photos. I posted one recently at social media. Alot of the kids I went to school with could not believe I still had that 7th grade photo. I wish I had the rest of them, after my mom passed away, I am not sure where they went. I'm always afraid I will waltz into a Cracker Barrel and see my ancestors plastered on the walls. I treasure my memories. Don't get me started on idiot drivers. They rule the roadways and the rest of us get stuck with higher insurance cots as a result of their ignorance. The Stones just told the truth, something else we are sadly lacking in our country today. My father use to reply, and people in hell want ice water whenever one of us kids would say, I want.....
