Dear rubber-necking, knuckle-dragging troglodytes,
Yes, I realize that the whole “water from the sky” thing can be a little disorientating, esp. here in Austin, where its a fairly rare occurrence. I can even grok the need to go a little slower in these circumstances. The wreck up ahead is certainly a testament to the need to be a little more cautious whilst driving in adverse weather conditions.
I also realize that an accident which has called out …let’s see; 3 fire engines, 3 tow trucks, at least 2 ambulances and a slew of cop cars – is alot of light and motion to have to deal with this early in the morning, esp. in the rain.
This does not mean that you get to slow down to a crawl in an attempt to see what they are doing. Nor does it mean that select ones of you can actually STOP on the fucking ROAD and try to look into the back of the ambulances to try and see the poor folks who participated in the accident. Its none of your business. Leave them some privacy and oh, yeah…get the hell out of everyone else’s way who are just trying to get to where we need to be.
Yo, Universe. Yeah, you. I just wanna send out a great big FUCK YOU for the obstacles you placed in my path this morning. I mean, its not enough that I am trying to get my non-morning oriented 7 year old out the door and to school – which is thirty minutes away and then me back to work in a reasonable timely manner, oh no.
No, instead you decided that what I really needed was:
clueless Texas drivers
a doulie being driven by Methuselah doing 20 in the single lane 40
ALL of the stop signs/lights between me and the school – there are 12, I counted
the landscaping idiots who were dragging trees because they had not tied them down properly
ALL of the stop signs/lights back – still 12
and the aforementioned wreck.
