I woke up this morning and figured that I’d written two posts yesterday and I might just take today off. Then I saw some amazing stupidity and couldn’t keep it to myself.
As I’ve previously said I drive a big car which means I can’t go from 0 to 60 in 30 seconds without using a whole tank of gas. That might be a slight exaggeration but it’s very slight. Most of the freeway entrances are setup really dumb in my opinion and I can’t make a 15 mph loop to the entrance and get up to 60 to merge without being rear ended by the oncoming traffic. Because of that I drive my mom to work on the freeway and back home on the surface streets. The surface streets on the way home take me through downtown Irving which has two main streets and they are both one ways.
This morning right as I start on the one way street a see a car a little farther up from me start turning. I thought he was at one of the side streets that connect the one way streets. That was not where this person was at all. This person had decided it would be smarter to make a u-turn and just come the wrong way back down this one way street. The street had just widened into three lanes which put me in the center lane. So luckily the person used the lane to my left. I actually slowed down from 30 mph to 20 just to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. This driver went all the way back to where the two one way streets merged going the wrong way.
There are somethings some people do that will never stop amazing me.
I placed this in the Peeves category because stupid people are a pet peeve of mine.
