Featured Lifestyles Opinion

This one is for all of the people who have to commute to Western… You will get this for sure.
It never fails. I start out on my hour-and-a-half trek every morning, minding my own business, listening to whatever morning show I happen to have on the radio, and I see a hulking silhouette on the horizon.

As I creep closer, slowly overtaking the green behemoth, a string of obscenities barges in to damage my calm.

Every day, without fail, it’s the tractor or old man in a truck or *insert idiot here* going 35 down the highway like they have forever and nowhere to be.

Why can’t people just go the speed limit?

I don’t get it.

Tractors and large, slow-moving and usually unlicensed vehicles need to stay on back roads and quit clogging up the asphalt arteries.

One shouldn’t need to add an additional hour in travel time just to make it 70 miles on the road.

If only stupidity were fatal.

Where are you natural selection? Why have you forsaken me?

I know what you’re thinking: why not just pass the ass-hat?

Well… the short answer is that whoever designs our highway system seems to have been sniffing markers when they built them.

Blind curves abound making it impossible to get around these people.

I know this is a bit of a rant, but I believe after four years of dealing with this crap, a rant is well-deserved.

Every driver’s license should come with a mandatory IQ test and farm equipment should stick to the gravel. That’s all I am asking.

The other people pissing in my Cheerios are those who don’t understand the complicated machination that is the yellow blinking light sign in school zones.

If you are one of those people, take a deep breath and follow along here for a minute. The limit is only 25 when the light is BLINKING. Not all the time, so please don’t go so slowly when it’s not – so that I can literally overtake your vehicle walking leisurely and do laps around your car.
