Chad Hastings has been driving to and from work in his 2006 PT Cruiser for over a decade now. Chad is Catholic, so naturally he has a rosary dangling from his rear view mirror. "If you're Catholic, it's what you do," said Hastings. "You hang a rosary from your mirror." While the rosary has been there ever since his mother put it there when he bought the car, he hadn't ever actually used it. That all changed on Friday night. "I was listening to a podcast about making good use of idle time and then I saw my rosary and decided to put it to good use."
Many of his friends were shocked to hear what had transpired. "I can't believe I've never thought to actually use the rear view mirror rosary," said Chad's friend, Benedict Russel. "Who knows, maybe I'll start wearing one of those scapular things that I have lying around my apartment." When we asked Chad if he planned to continue using the rosary, he said that he was pretty sure he probably would.
