This morning I came on an intersection congested with traffic. Cars weren’t moving and people were honking their horns. As the traffic began to clear, I saw that there were a couple of ducks walking casually through the middle of the intersection. The ducks cleared the intersection at their own very-slow pace and the street returned to being free-flowing as cars whizzed by. I learned something in my observation:
Don’t assume that honking your horn at a duck will get the duck to feel the same sense of urgency that you have.
At least the people in the front didn’t turn the ducks into road kill.
