Do you ever feel like your turn signal is too loud so then you just turn it off?

Traffic jam for May 1st, 2019

Traffic jam for May 1st 2019

Guys there’s some kinda emergency thing going on right now at the intersection of 1st Street and Prairie Street in St. Charlies. Firetrucks, ambulances, police cars — the whole works.

My guess is that Chef Roby of Geneva was up bragging about his latest Food Network show and the local aggressive geese didn’t like it. Maybe Sammy and his mad bikes were involved. I don’t know.

Anyway, avoid crossing the mighty Fox River via Prairie if you got somewhere to be this Wednesday afternoon.

1st Street and Prairie Street

Mad from a distance

tcr! · Apr 16, 2019 at 1:19 pm

Green stoplights

Yesterday I pulled up behind a silver car waiting at a stoplight. There was another white car to my right, double parked with the blinkers on.

An older, burly dude was walking slowly down the sidewalk, eyeing the parked white car. I assumed it to be his. I also knew there was no way in hell he’d be able to open his driver’s side door. There wasn’t any room with his double park for him to get in.

I started to feel tense. Totally ready for the stoplight to turn green so this whole situation would go away. I like stuff to go away.

“What the hell you park like that for? This is a no win situation.”

Exactly. I don’t know why I sometimes think that another’s feeling is mine to manage. I got enough going on with just me. 😊

I just turned on my left blinker and the windshield wipers start wiping. There was washer fluid everywhere. I barely made my left turn.

This is why I don’t everything.

I could get around a lot quicker if my stoplights were always green.

Is there somebody I can talk to in traffic control about this?

Maybe a transmitter I can mount to my windshield?

It’s quite likely that the traffic lights in your area do have prioritization for emergency vehicles, meaning the light turns green as they approach. Simplest solution: steal an ambulance. Or a fire truck.

tcr! tcr! · Jan 14, 2019 at 10:06 pm

I’ve always wanted an ambulance like they had in Ghostbusters 🚑 👻

I gradually lost sight of her

tcr! · Oct 30, 2018 at 1:39 pm

Fall driving

I was driving to work this morning as I do. A black Honda Civic sports car pulled up alongside me, a lady about 10 years older than me behind the wheel. When we got to the next stop light she continued to inch her Honda closer and closer toward the intersection.

I said to myself, “You wanna race? I’ll give you a race. I’ve got a 1999 V6 that runs good on regular gas.”

I didn’t have my racing gloves with me but that didn’t matter. And then I couldn’t go full balls when the Christmas lights lit up anyway. With the other cars in front of us and all.

So then as we barreled north, she in her black car and me in my black truck, she continued to apply horsepower. As did I. As the traffic would allow.

But then I had thought that wasn’t my own.[1] Here’s this little older in a sports car, probably having the time of her life. Roaring around like Thelma and Louise and then here I am wanting to take that away from her, not even attempting to be my best self.

And then I slowed down.

Let other people win, peeps.

I just saw a teenage boy riding his bike down the sidewalk, through an intersection, and up onto the other side walk. All the while holding his phone with one hand and never looking up.

In a related prediction: the life expectancy of teenagers will plummet to an all time low.

There are too many automatons walking around, never looking up, staring a their phones. Have you seen the video…a guy is at work, staring at his phone, falls down a flight of stairs, gets up, and goes back to staring at his phone?

tcr! tcr! · Oct 23, 2018 at 9:31 am

Haha! No, but I have seen plenty of others with people walking into telephone poles and the like. 😊

For god’s sake people it’s a garbage truck not a hearse. Go around.

You’re out here acting like it’s a funeral procession for trash. 🙄

Maybe they think it’s a school bus. Or a parade. Or they’re trash collection inspectors (government efficiency).

tcr! tcr! · Oct 15, 2018 at 11:29 am

Just like the government to send out 4 trash inspectors but then ignore my repeated attempts to participate in my neighborhood’s 2018 Street Improvement Project.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 15, 2018 at 11:38 am

Have you tried following the trash inspectors around blasting Iron Maiden? I think that would improve the street immeasurably.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 15, 2018 at 1:26 pm

Were you thinking 22 Acacia Avenue or Caught Somewhere in Time? Aces High would be fun, too.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 15, 2018 at 1:48 pm

22 Acacia Avenue seems thematically appropriate for the Street Improvement Project.

Quite possibly hungover

tcr! · Oct 2, 2018 at 7:23 pm

Audio (MP3): 20181002 - Quite possibly hungover

The scene was once again my truck.

I was sitting at a stoplight and a minivan pulled up in the lane next to me.

The wife appeared to be driving and, who I assume to be the husband, was slumped over in the passenger seat. Quite possibly hungover. Renounced pathetic in his silence and downward, saddened gaze.

The engrossing part of this travel tale was that she was scolding him with both hands and all that. Arms flailing. Eyes furious. Teeth gnashing. Murderously chewing his ass upside and down there behind their minivan windows.

This would be a day I would not ever forget if I were him. The guy looked defeated as he sat there frumpily slumped. Acceptive of whatever verbal beating his wife was handing down.

I don’t know if he fucked the dog last night or what, but guys, this dude was in trouble. 😯
