I am offended

I'm not sure that this starts with a correct assumption, but I'm going to go with it.  The assumption that I'm making is that the older gentleman driving the instruction car labeled "student driver" is actually the instructor teaching the course.  There was no passenger.

I could be wrong.  In which case, I'm only generally indignant rather than offended.

Said car with "student driver" signs, the extra mirror, etc. pulled out of the driveway of Bristol Eastern High School this morning and drove a mile or so down Route 229 and turned into the gas station, presumably to gas up the car.  The entire drive including a lane change and a couple of left turns was accomplished with a cell phone glued to the man's ear.

Connecticut's hands-free law is honored far more in the breach than the observance.  I'm accustomed to that.  Irritated, but accustomed.  But especially given that the legislature just passed very strict graduated licensing provisions for teen drivers, I find it truly offensive that the person who is supposed to instruct them NOT to do this is apparently not with the program.

Regardless of how one feels about the law itself, I find the hypocrisy repugnant.

AND Comcast shuffled their channels overnight or something, so instead of the timer on the TV coming on with my alarm to the Weather Channel so that I could grab the local forecast, it came on to the YES network.  That's a horrible way to wake up.
