What were once simple tasks or errands that took a few minutes now take much, much longer. The other day I drove to the copy shop and in the few minutes that I was at the shop all the nearby roads were closed to traffic. I drove down one street only to get to the end and find it closed and had to figure out how to turn around to go back where I started. Of course a long line of cars behind me were in the same predicament; all of us trying to sort ourselves out. Just when you thought you had figured out a through road you would find yourself at an impasse and have to back-up or turn around once again. What should have taken me a few minutes ended up taking me an hour and a half.
At one point the only way through was to cross a rather high median. My car is low so I stopped and had a look to see if I would be able to make it across. I decided to go for it only to get the front set of wheels over and get stuck... my tires were spinning in mid-air.... I was going nowhere. I'm not sure how I managed to get off the center strip and back again with 4 wheels on the ground.
Back up... turn around... Ahhh! I can go this way! Turn the corner only to find a tent set up in the street blocking the way. Here I am trapped once again.
My car is turning into junk in just a matter of weeks. How long will this roadwork go on? When will we see the end of it?
I need a 4-wheel drive. Or maybe a helicopter... sigh..
A camel might get you there a bit faster. And gives you gas back......AndiReplyDelete
Lately I have been wasting a lot of timeReplyDelete
Broken roads & no maintenance is crime
Much road construction to be done
How long will this roadwork go on?
Demolitions & road work has no date
Stop, turn around, backup, things I hate
Ahhh! Great finally I can go this way!
At the corner a tent blocked my way
I drove endless of miles on a bad road
Potholes, filth and dirt all over my hood
Puddles, & on my window jumps a toad
5 minutes errands now takes over an hour
My car morphed to junk & I lost all power
I’m thinking of switching from this chapter
To a 4-wheel drive. Or maybe a helicopter
