It is now illegal to use a cell phone while driving in my town of Helena, MT. I’ve rarely texted while driving, but I’ve been known to pick it up during stop lights.
I answer the phone using hands-free, but if your ob-gyn calls, and your children are in the back seat, this is not a good time to get results unless you are prepared to explain a lot of things you don’t know all of the scientific answers to. (I won’t go into more detail at this time.)
But it is hard for me to stop texting during stoplights. Especially if I get there as it is turning yellow and I know I have the whole 20 seconds of red light to wait. That’s time I can make useless conversation.
But it is illegal. And I’m trying to be a good mom and give an example of a law abiding citizen to my children. (They can find out the truth after they are 18.
Let’s make that 25.)
So here is my solution: I now paint my nails at stop lights. I don’t want to mess up the new polish with texting and it is perfectly legal! Win-win!
AND my nails look FABULOUS.
How do you stop texting?
