This photo is from Saturday as we approached the Canadian border while taking Chloe to her university in British Columbia. That’s the Peace Arch on the left side of the photo, and Melinda’s hands on the steering wheel. What prompted me to take the picture, though, was the “scooter gang” (not to be confused with a biker gang) in front of us. There were a couple of them in front of our car, all part of the long line waiting to cross the border. Several more came zooming up and pulled in front of us.
That’s right. They cut in line.
We got a little indignant. Maybe even a little bit angry. Mostly, I’d say, we were just shocked. You see, each one had to go through customs individually. So having 5 or 6 scooters pull in front of us was like having 5 or 6 cars cut in front of us.
Oh, well, right? Life regularly gives you opportunities to practice patience.
