I’m not going to pretend to be the most punctual person on the planet. Or even the most punctual person on my tram at work. I’m not a punctual guy. I’m for the most part always late. There. I said it. However, every now and then by some miracle of God, I actually do roll out of bed on time to make it to my glorious job on or ahead of schedule. It’s rare, but it happens. For example, it happened this morning. But I still didn’t get to work on time. Why, you may ask? Traffic. Oh how I hate traffic. So irritating.

And to make things even better, it was traffic that could have been prevented. Let me explain. As I am sitting in the right lane wondering what the hold up is, I start to notice all the cars ahead of me put their left turn signals on. So obviously there in an obstruction of some kind in my lane.

My first thought is, if there was an accident, I hope everyone is ok. The last thing anyone wants to see is some kind of tragedy. So as I finally creep up to be able to see what happened, I catch a glimpse. Then I get pissed. A fender bender. 3 cars. 3 women on their cell phones looking at the damage. 1 car horn that apparently took a hit and wouldn’t shut off.

So now I’m late. All because one of these lovely ladies (And don’t accuse me of being sexist. They could have been dudes and I would still be cursing them.) was probably on their cell phone and not paying attention to what they were doing. So I did the only thing I could do as I creeped by the scene of the crime at 4 mph. I gave them the stare of death. Not that it made a bit of difference. But it did make me feel a little better. And I can only hope it made the one responsible feel like #$!*&.

  • I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.
