crashing foreign cars


i remember, once upon a time when i was learning to drive, that one of the first things that you learn aboot driving is to pay attention not only to the road, but also to the other vehicles around you. it's now been more than a dozen years since i learned this lesson, but it's one that i hold as very important even to this day. somehow other people don't seem to remember this much past the driving test.

today i got my arse on the highway at around 6:30 am. and at that time in the morning there is absolutely NO reason why it should take over an hour and fifteen minutes to drive 35 km.

oh wait, there was a reason. some retard drove into the meridian in the middle of the highway. you see, with today being 30 degrees (85 ish for americans) and sunny, there is no reason to do this. unless perhaps a small piece of your brain was removed just before it happened.

so i ask all canadian drivers, please pay attention. as much as i might complain about not wanting to go to work - that's just complaining. see, the longer i delay getting to work the longer i delay getting home.

and the longer i delay having a cup of coffee in the morning.

and reading this.

    Hello there.
    Forgive me for taking my sweet time to get over to your wondeful blog..

    i just read a couple of your post and realize i have been missing out..you write very nicely and with passion...

    the driver's in Calgary are no better..it is hard to get on the road and not start ranting..but then again as bad as it may be for us here i cannot tell you how terrifying it was to be on the road in Miami...speed is not the problem it is the fact that not too many obey laws...traffic laws and the cops, they do nothing...run a red, no problem, with a cop car right there! almost, by an inch run over a pedestrian, old or young, who cares, another less human,,,

    yikes.

    there, i added to your rant with my..lol..glad i could help..

    thank you for your time in my blog...it's very different than Joe's..he's are so full of wit and amazingly written..mine is more of a girl's weird mushy stuff, lol...

    enjoy your wknd..take care on the roads and see you around...
