The problem with living (and driving) in a “resort town”
TOURISTS. Goddamn tourists. All I needed to do was return an overdue book to the library. BUT THIS MADNESS, WHY DO YOU MAKE IT SO HARD.
There are three ways to spot tourist drivers:
- Out-of-state license plates, the most obvious sign (Be very afraid if the plates in question are Victorian in origin)
- A little harder to spot, but still telling, a hire car barcode sticker in the window.
- Finally, they’re usually WEAVING ALL OVER THE ROAD GOING AT LEAST 20k/h UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT.
~A Vignette of Today’s Madness~
A car with Victorian plates swerved in front of me, dashing from the right turning lane into the left turning lane. Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but a right turn is quite different from a left turn. How do you fuck that up?
I also forgot that the particular library branch I wanted to visit is located near a Camping Ground. Actually, two camping grounds. So now we have the added danger of caravans. CARAVANS.
When, at last, I made it to the library I discovered I HAD FORGOTTEN THE BOOK I NEEDED TO RETURN.
