Times readers share their encounters with the good and the bad.

Daily Rant & Rave: Put down the phone and drive!

RAVE To the wonderful people at Metro (bus drivers and office personnel) for finding my bag with important papers in it and holding it securely until I was able to retrieve it. Thank you for your great service!

RANT To all the wonderfully selfish drivers at stoplights reading their texts or email, doing paperwork, brushing hair or otherwise engaged in anything other than operating their motor vehicle. The light turns green, they continue engaging in their distraction, do not notice that everyone in front of them has moved on, then tramp on the gas to get themselves through the intersection before the light turns red. This in turn leaves all the vehicles behind them to wait another iteration at the stoplight. You may as well stand on the hood of your vehicle and shout: “Me me me!! It’s all about me!! I am all that matters!!”
