{December 2, 2008}   You would be Surprised…..

You would be surprised by the idiocy of some. No, seriously. People are soooo dumb, its hard to believe.

 

For example, on my way home I come down a hill and then go strsight for a while and then I come to a curve. Now, I have three choices there. I can go left (and soon get home), I can go right (and go on a very long 7 mile round about way home) or I can go straigh, and drive into a house. Infront of the house there is a brand new bright yellow flourescent sign with a double ended arrow pointing left and right. Why you really need a sign there telling you you have to go left or right instead of driving into a house is beside me. Personally I would rather see that money go to repairing a few pot holes. But apparently it is more imporant to tell idiots to turn and not drive into a house. And after all, I know the house has stood for 150 odd years, and it hasn’t been driven into yet, so of course some idiot needs the sign to tell them not to drive into it now.

 

Another thing is, apparently people forget how to park after its snowed. I know some people get all excited when it snows, and they are so happy and joyful and sickening. Other people get all grumpy and bumpy and gloomy and refuse to move for fear the snow will invade inside and they will slip and break a hip.

I LOVE snow. I like it, I can’t stand walking in it or driving in it, or being cold because of it. But otherwise I LOVE snow. Its so pretty and soft and white and sparkly and I just love it. Just keep it on the other side of the fence. I also don’t like driving it it. Keep it on the sides of the road, and give me at least two of those nice bone dry gray strips to drive it, or better yet give me a whole road of dry so I can put cruise control on. I LOVE cruise control!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, people are idiots in the snow, some people are afraid to be out driving so they go so slow they literally become a danger. Other people ignore the snow and go so fast they are also a danger (they always are, but the snow makes them more so). I know some men, and probubly women, who will brush off their whole vehicle, except where the liscense plate is. Then they will speed, and cut corners, and ignore traffic laws and signs because they know no one can see what they liscense plate number is.

And, apparently because it is snowy and no one had plowed the parking lot it is okay to park whereever you want. And by wherever you want I mean, following the handicapped and no parking signs (which are painted on the ground, which you cannot see) but taking up two or three spots with your tiny car. Literall, I saw lots of free room in the parking lot (a small parking lot, which services the four busyest buildings), however none of the room would fit more then a motorcycle. People were ignoring the lines and the space and just parking where ever they felt like. I personally parked in the first spot I could find (in this parking lot you aren’t picky, you just park). I knew I could fit there, and I did. I parked wonderfully, not hitting either car on either side of me, or the one infront of me. Then I tried to get out, OOPS. I couldn’t fit out the door.

My car door could open approximatly 2 inches, unfortunatly I am wider then 2 inches, and so is my bag with books. So I had to pull out and find another spot, and I was very tempted to just swipe the two cars. (they had again parked so stupidly, taking up enough space for 5 cars between the two of them). And trolled slowly looking for a parking spot. And I did find one after 5 minutes, in the very back. And of course then I had to walk throught the slush to the door. I, silly me, am wearing very good green sneakers. They are awesome for the summer. Unfortunatly they have holes in the sides, perfect for letting air flow freely, or slush flow through. My feet were literally soaking in icy cold slush by the time I got inside. And now, about 5 hours later my feet are freezing cold and still very wet. I do NTO look forward to going back outside to the slush. Although I am absolutly going to find my winter shoes. Big and cluncky and not nice looking, but warm and mostly water proof.

 

People are so dumb! And I know that I am constantly amazed by it. But still, how can you be so dumb???????? Really, I know that talking on your cell phone while driving is imporant, even if it is illegal. But so is actually stopping for a red light instead of sailing through it (while traffice is using the intersection). *kisses breaks*.

Seriously! Try getting a brain transplant or something. I cannot watch out for you and stop you from byeing or getting injured to a stupid mistake. I refuse to babysit anyone, okay I refuse to babysite adults. And really, as a tutor in a college I find thats what I have to do. And frankly I don’t. Which probubly makes me a bad tutor, but I don’t care.

 

GET BRAINS PEOPLE! LEARN HOW TO USE THEM PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Idiot- the worst curse in the world, according to me.

idiocy- what an idiot is.

On another note, I finished “Between Silk and Cynide”

 

It was very, very good. And highly enjoyable. And when I am home and have the book I will finish my reveiw. Until then, I still highly recomend it. At the same time I will warn you at the very end it becomes much sadder. You learn what happened to agen’s Leo Mark’s was worried about, and it is truely terrible. I have always known that people died, and how some of them died. But never before have I been so invested in them, never before has it stuck me so much. I don’t know if that is because it was an adult book and I am an adult, if Leo Marks was such a strong and incredible writer, or because of some off phase of the moon.

I do know that it has renewed an interest in WW II, and interest I have had since I was about 12 years old. But with classes and stress the way they are now I don’t knwo if I will actually be able to find anything to read, or if I will want to. Now I just want fun, interesting, somewhat light, and occasionally uplifting books. AKA, I don’t want anything too serious or depressing. Life and life and lfie are too serious and depressing at the moment, I really hate to take on any from someone else.
