Sometimes you have to let things go..but when things like this are being said.. you need to address..
“It’s just a farmer pass them..”
“Ugh I’m gonna be late for work”
“I’m not slowing down he can get over”
“I know they see me behind them”
“Farming is stupid”
“Tractors shouldn’t be allowed on the road”
“Ugh we get behind them always around this time of the year”
Those farmers are:
If you don’t care about the tractor at least care for the driver..this is someone’s loved one
If your late to work..think they are going to work..
If your not slowing down.. yes we can get over but most of the time… your car or truck is easier just to maneuver..
If you think we can see you…we may not be able too, normally we can’t because many impatient people like to bumper hump. very dangerous, you don’t know where we are going..Instead try backing off and when we see you and find a good place to pull of trust me we will…
If you think farming is stupid, I hate to say it but I think the same about you..
..if it wasn’t for farming, you would not only be starving..you wouldn’t have clothes on your back, by-products necessities like some medicines wouldn’t be available, by-product non necessities like makeup. by- products like alcohol or sports balls that you use to have a good time you wouldn’t have..
Yes when you think of farming you think of crops or livestock..but think beyond those plants and animals. It’s not just meat and grain..It’s beyond that..so many uses for the things we grow in agriculture..
If you think tractors shouldn’t be allowed on the road..I’m gonna say it.. you don’t need a fancy sports car that goes well over the speed limits anywhere, you don’t need those trucks with big tires that rub when you turn..
If your gonna be late for work..you probably already sped there anyway..how about leaving a little earlier..
If you get behind them every year same times..don’t you think..there is a reason..It’s harvest time..
Take a minute, reflect on how thankful you should be..but yourself in our shoes..
Praying for rain, praying for a sunny day, fixing broken equipment, praying for input cost to decrease, praying for market prices to increase, in the field from sun up to sun down or 30
days in a row..
Farming is beautiful don’t get me wrong but farming is stressful, farming is demanding, just because we are tired doesn’t mean we don’t have to get up, we’ve got crops we have to get out.. we have bills to pay just like you and you know most of our bills.. are from the products wether it be crops, vegetables, livestock ..we are producing for YOU.
Thank a farmer..
Slow down, Smile..
You know the saying slow down don’t drown..
Well slow down farming makes the world go round..
