Just Wait

Just Wait. Just wait to answer that text. Just wait to pick up that call. Just two more minutes until you park the car. Just think about your passengers. For once, just think about yourself. It’s not selfish if you are keeping yourself safe. Just turn on “Do Not Disturb.” Or Text whoever you are talking to before hand and say “I’m about to drive, please don’t text me.” Or “Please don’t worry if I don’t answer, I’m getting in my car right now.” Don’t put your life at risk, or your passengers, because of your phone. Now that is selfish. That call you are getting? Ignore it. Have a passenger answer it and talk for you or put it on speaker. Just don’t touch the phone. Just Wait.


It is a poem style of writing, and it is basically saying to wait to answer what happens on your phone. The notifications won’t save your life in that moment, they will only put it at risk. If you have passengers, there are ways of answering those calls and texts without actually touching the phone, and this poem shows that. I know friends who’s parents will have them answer a phone call or text if they are driving and are put in that situation. Another solution for this is to put your phone on “Do Not Disturb,” or to just turn it off if you are in the car by yourself. Twitter can wait, and so can you.
