Do These 8 Things in Idaho and That’s All I Need to Know About You
There has been much discussion every Wednesday about this subject. There are snapshot moments that make an impression on people, and sometimes you only get one chance to make a good impression. That one thing speaks for everything you will ever need to know about someone.
If you do any of these 8 things in Twin Falls, be it good or bad, then that's all I need to know about you.
If you stop traffic trying to turn right onto Pole Line from Washington, it is definitely all anyone stuck behind you needs to know. They now know to get past you as quickly as possible so they don’t get stuck behind you merging onto the freeway.
If you turn on your right-hand signal through these intersections, you're a good person and that is all I need to know about you. Waiting for someone when you don’t know if they are going straight or following left can take FOREVER.
Parking in the bike lanes is another way to know about someone instantly. Every school day, I see parents parked in the bike lanes instead of parking in the proper places. You’re right. Your needs are way more important than the kid biking home safely.
Car dancers at stoplights know how to make the most of a moment. They are masters of the craft if they immediately ‘switch gears’ and drive when the light turns green. Making the most of stop-time is very telling about a person.
Walking from here to there is supposed to be helpful to one’s health. Trying to circumnavigate around fresh snot rockets on the sidewalk is more than unpleasant.
I had my first sinus-clearing snot rocket outdoor experience with my sister’s fiance on a walk to the grocery store. I couldn’t figure out why she married him. I knew all I needed to know about him in that one moment.
How many times do you see 2 adults with a child chanting ‘1,2,3, Jump!’? Watching people make the chore of shopping into an ‘element of fun’ like Mary Poppins is all I need to know.
People who take their dogs for a walk and pick up the droppings mean a lot. Going for a walk, bike ride, or run can be ruined so quickly by an irresponsible owner. It’s part of owning a dog and enjoying the outside. Pick up the poop, man. If you do clean up the do-do, then that's all I need to know about you.
I try to shovel past my walk and at least from one neighbor's driveway to the other neighbor's driveway. Why not take the extra few minutes to go a bit further? I don’t own a snow blower so I do it by hand. If you own a snow blower and don’t at least take care of the walkway through both neighbors' houses, yeah. You’ve spoken volumes.
There have been plenty of listeners that know about people and deal-breakers. From kissing pigs to face tattoos, positive or negative, sometimes one thing is all it takes.
