I was driving out of Boston today and it was slow going. Everyone was making a bee line to their vacation spots on this last summer 3 day-weekend getaway . It's Labor day here in the USA and for most kids it's back to school next week.
While sitting in midst of the traffic that is produced by this need to get away I plotted my route to avoid delays wherever possible. I felt that if I headed home , to Lynn, that no one would be headed there for the last days of their summer. That old saying Lynn, Lynn the City of Sin is better at keeping people away from here than it is drawing them in.
Little do "they" know there is far less sin in Lynn than there used to be...those Vacant buildings in the City Center are becoming condos. The Train makes Lynn a convenient 15 minute ride into Boston. Little do "they" know and few if any of "them" read this blog...So don't tell anyone that Lynn, Ma, the Home Of Marshmallow Fluff, will soon be a desirable city to live in.
Because when "they" move here it won't ever be the same.
Who are "They" ?
They are those people who have exhibited clear evidence of being Assholes! There I said it. No better place to find this evidence than while driving out of Boston, Ma on a busy Holiday Weekend.
There are assholes everywhere!!
They are easy to spot.
They ride your bumper so close you can see their crazy eyes in your rear-view mirror
When they approach a green light they hit their breaks as if they are trying to determine the shade of green in the light. Meanwhile, they have caused a chain reaction causing others to hit their breaks and then ultimately they get through the light. I don't make the light because of, his, indecision, I am stopped at the light watching him drive away to cause further problems down the road....He clearly is an asshole.
When traveling a road that is going from 2 lanes down to one, anyone speeding by in the lane that is being cut down so they can cut in front of the line of traffic is an asshole....There are no exceptions to this rule. They let you know this, the lane merge, is happening with signs a mile before you get there!! Merge early and there would be no delays further down the road...Why can't we all just get along!!
Why are there so many Assholes.
Assholes don't use blinkers!!
They honk their horns with aggravating frequency.
Has anyone out there got any Asshole Evidence to share, I could go on and on but I am finally home and it's time for a Corona...
