Finding Ways to Mask Bad Behaviors
January 12, 2012
Hello everyone! In this issue of my blog I would like to talk about my past experiences in Radio Control Car racing. When I was younger, during a race I would swear a lot on the drivers' stand. I would swear when I hit a board or rolled my car over. I also yelled at slower racers who would not move out of my way. I never swore around my parents when I was at home. But when it came to an intense race, it would come right out of my mouth, like a reflex action. This upset the owner of the track, who I respect greatly. He told me that if I continued this type of behavior I would be banned from the track for life. I couldn't hold it in, it just seemed automatic. This scared me a great deal because if I lost the right to race at Trackside Raceway, my dream of winning the Tamiya North American Finals would be over and I knew that would be like losing my life. I had to find something that would prevent me from swearing. But what could I do if could not control myself?
I found a way.
