For those of you who have been, this will make sense. For those of you who haven’t, it kind of sums up the Israeli mentality.
And, oh how I wish I had a picture. I’ll do my best.
Tonka and I were walking along Pierre Koenig St. in Jerusalem (a fairly busy street).
Coming down the street, on the outside lane, was a disabled woman (she had very short arms) and was smallish in general in her motorized wheelchair.
Again, this wasn’t on the sidewalk, it was ON the actual road. She was probably going 10-15 mph.
She was navigating the wheelchair using a joystick on one hand (which I think had a cigarette in it as well) and in the other hand, she was holding up the microphone part of her headset because she was talking on her cell phone.
