16-year-old Barry had just received his learner’s permit, so he offered to drive his mom to church. After a ten-minute ride which featured speeding and abrupt stops, hairpin turns and collisions with multiple curbs, Barry pulled the car into the church parking lot.

His mother got out of the car and said, “Thank you!”

“Anytime,” Barry replied.

As mom slammed the door, she said, “I wasn’t talking to you. I was talking to God.”
