|Stuck in a Road Daze?|
I hate it not only because I find it the opposite of fun, but because I'm bad at it. This is for several reasons.
First of all, I tend to daydream. This has compelled me on a few occasions to run stop signs, which when I was 18 years old, had a disastrous consequence to four fences, three cars and a few people.
The other thing is I'm very bad at administrative details, like paying fines on tickets. I tend to lose them and then forget what state I was in originally when I got the ticket. Unfortunately, state governments do remember things like that, even years later. Finally -- and this is related to how I do investing -- I tend to mostly think about the worst possible scenarios. In driving, let me tell you, it's a drag to constantly be assuming that every car is going to hit you. So the key for me is to be a very good passenger. But since I tend to get jumpy even when I'm not sitting in the passenger seat, I need to make sure I'm entertained. And quite frankly, AM /FM just doesn't cut it anymore.
