Calling All Morons To Grand Avenue!
Today's A.M. Grand Avenue Shuffle was extraordinarily exciting! First, my car started running very hot, almost overheating, but I caught it in time. So, it was 96° outside, and I had to run my heater! Imagine this: you're in Arizona, it's August, it's 96° at 7:30 a.m., you have your car heater running at full blast, and when you hang your arm out the window to get a breeze, it actually feels cool! In addition to my vehicular issues, it seemed that every moron with a vehicle from the West valley was magically drawn to Grand Avenue this morning! Had I known the Moron-Memo went out, I would have avoided Grand Avenue altogether! So, I'm trying to avoid having my car overheat, and I get stuck behind every fool that's driving 30 mph for no reason, happens to be a "Brakelight Charlie", or other equally foolish things; you get the picture. Then there's the added challenge of the trains! If you're in the right-hand lane at the wrong time, you WILL be delayed by the train. I cannot tell you how lucky I was to remember this point, and stay in the other two lanes! However, limiting myself to only two lanes, I had to tangle with the morons even more than I usually would. I did make it to work without incident. My car did not overheat, but I think I may have. I'm calling the shop as soon as they open this morning. This will not do!
