Default Things we don't understand..........

I was driving home from my Dad's today right around 1630. Just the beginning of rush hour on the expressway. I'm zipping along all happy and content then one of those lighted signs display, "Expect delays, traffic congestion ahead." Okay, sure enough, the traffic slows to a crawl. Stop and go traffic. Inching along for a good mile or mile and a half. Then suddenly, the traffic is free flowing again. What was the hold up? There were no entrance or exit ramps, no construction. What causes that congestion? It was so weird.

It's usually caused by the sign.

There you go. That's got to be it. Gosh darn it, if the sign says there's traffic congestion then we sure as hell better make sure there's some traffic congestion.

Why is it that someone will pull out right in front of you while you're moving along at 55 miles an hour, causing you to slow down so you don't hit them, when there isn't a car behind you for miles?

This happens to other people too?!?!?!

My best guess was that they thought "There just may be an ICBM in that other lane"...

I have learned that since I drive a large truck, everyone needs to be in front of it no matter how fast you are going. I love it when I am passing an on ramp and the guy getting on will floor it to get in front of me and then slow down to slower then i am driving and i will have to pass.

The only time I ever drive in traffic is on vacation, go figure.

I don't understand how my grass dries out dead when it's a drought but the weeds stay green.
