Problem with common sense

Dear Editor:Recently, around noon on a day when puddles remained from a morning rain, I saw a man in my neighborhood hosing down his driveway. (I think the last time I hosed down a driveway was about 40 years ago.) Only moments later I saw a woman drive out of her parking place at the library, awkwardly steering with one hand while she awkwardly held a cell phone to her ear with the other hand. (Why does anyone with a brain not finish their phone conversation while they're still parked?) It would be nice if common sense were a little more common. -- Gary E. Myers, Downey
