Spring is in the Air

Spring must be in the air. Not only do you see more joggers and people with strollers (which is are nice about spring). But, you see a lot of inconsiderate people driving around. Apparently, I am not the only one who sees this (see Lauren’s letters to the Jackass).

Maybe it’s because the weather is so nice that people want to get in their cars and drive around with the moon roof (or sun roof or whatever) open. I don’t begrudge drivers that right – I have a convertible after all. What I have a problem with is those people who roll down their windows and blast what is pretty gawdaful music. It’s the “BOOM, BOOM, BOOM” variety that consists of nothing but vibrations that rattle your teeth. Maybe I’m just getting old.

Then there are the “Jesus Fish” people. I don’t want to offend anyone and I appologize if I do – I’m a “good” Catholic girl myself. On my long commute to Schaumburg from Chicago, I come across a lot of cars. It is the cars that have this “Jesus Fish” emblem on the back of their cars that inevitably cut me (or someone else) off in traffic or decide that a red light (meaning stop) does not apply to them.

Again, maybe it’s just me. After spending an hour and a half in traffic each way, I tend to get a bit bitchy. So, people be careful out there and be considerate. And, if you’re that Jeep person that Lauren is talking about, please don’t EVER double park in front of a perfectly good parking space. I live on Leavitt too!

Happy Spring!

    Drivers here freak out about Spring like it’s never happened before. They completely forget how to drive like normal, functioning human beings. Same thing happens during the first snowfall of the year. My favorites are the ones who zoom down the shoulder. Too bad we all can’t have our own personal lanes.

    I encountered a doofus the other day on I94- during rush hour traffic, he decided to jump on the shoulder. Not only did he get stuck, but an ambulance got stuck behind him…lights flashing, prolly with someone close to death in it. Jackass. Guess where you are going is DEFINITELY MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE EMT!
