missing the point: man in germany drives to driving test
A man in Germany has discovered the hard way that it’s best to get a driving license first before trying to use it. Police in Bergheim, near Cologne, said Tuesday that the 37-year-old drove himself to his driving test, parking an Opel Zafira outside the test center in front of an astonished examiner.
They said he told police officers who were called to the scene on Monday that he had only driven because he wanted to make sure to get to the driving test on time.
His test was immediately called off. The man now faces an investigation for driving without a license. Police also opened an investigation of the car’s owner.

“I simply go about my passage swiftly and silentlwith a certain deliberate, dark efficiency.”
along the way on my weekday drive
there is often a traffic mishap or accident
and if I begin to worry about being late
or get annoyed by the hold up
i think about how the person/people involved must feel
how their life instantly changed in that moment
they were just having an ordinary day
maybe they were
headed to work
to visit someone
leaving for a vacation
going to a celebration
so many possibilities
i’ve got no room to complain
nothing to worry about
puts it all right back into perspective
so i listen to my music and sit with my gratitude.

he was waiting patiently for his front seat driver to return.

it’s even easier to be a backseat driver when you’re not even in the same car.”
