I really love driving, but I also hate it. I mean, it's like anything good in life. I enjoy ice cream, but hate brain freezes. I love me some Doritos, but I hate the fact that the sodium bloats me up and makes me feel super gross afterwards.
So I guess my problem with driving is the condition of roads, specifically in the New York metropolitan area. When I was in Switzerland, I didn't see potholes over there like I do over here, and you can't convince tell me that NY doesn't have the money to get Switzerland-esque roads, OK?
What's even more annoying than the condition of the roads has to be pedestrians who think that all of the world's blacktop belongs to them. I can't count the number of dirty stares I've received from pedestrians who refuse to quicken their pace when there's a green light for motorists. I swear to God, some of them intentionally walk slow just to make a point about how not bothered by cars they are.
CRAZY VIDEO! "Get off the freeway!" The person holding the camera yells to a young woman walking along I-45 as cars whiz by. The story ---> http://bit.ly/2qnSGm6Posted by KPRC2 / Click2Houston on Tuesday, May 16, 2017
What's even crazier is that she turns and gives the cameraman who yells at her to "Get off the freeway!" a dirty look, like he's the one acting improperly in this situation.
And by scintillating, I mean the exact opposite of just that.
Whenever there's a post of a young person doing anything, chalk it up to a larger societal problem. Or the fact that maybe this young woman was bored one day and said, "You know what? Screw the freeway." It could be that, too, you know.
