In the future, when someone makes an irritating error while driving, assume a generous attitude toward them. Since you can’t really know what’s going on for them, shrug it off while remembering that no one is perfect. This will feel a whole lot better to everyone involved. Then, the next time someone makes an angry gesture at you on the road, imagine what it would have felt like if they had extended the same generosity of spirit that you’re now playing with.

Turns a mistake into a human connection.
