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.
But then there people like this woman, who take this kind of pedestrian privilege to a whole new level, by walking straight into incoming traffic on the highway.
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.
There was a scintillating debate in the Facebook comments section as to what would have caused a young woman to do such a thing.
And by scintillating, I mean the exact opposite of just that.
And of course, people started making blanket statements about the sorry state of the youth of America.
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.
