I'm Here! @ work... god this blows.

Most flattering modeling picture ever. I wouldn't wear something like that, but she looks so good in it.

So yesterday I drive to work and see the wreckage of 2 accidents. Both really mooshed cars, but the drivers were fine and out screaming at the other driver.
Then 3 hours before I leave work yesterday I'm told that 3 lanes of 95S had to be closed off because of a HUGE accident and when I left HOURS later there was still an assload of traffic left over from the accident.

Today I'm driving to work and I was late so I was pretty psyched there was no traffic and I was making good time... then I get close to the Pike exit and things just stop. I move my car for a passing cop car, then a passing ambulance. Finally I get close to my exit and there is a 4 car accident on the opposite side of 95, where I actually got to see them extract the bodies from a mooshed car... but what pissed me off was, it wasn't on the northbound side, it was southbound. So all that traffic was from people stopping to gawk at the wreckage. Fuckers.

It's not fucking hard to drive responsibly and not like an asshole. Use a fucking blinker, turn your head and look at the lane you are moving into, use mirrors...
What the fuck is up with Massachusetts drivers?!!!

Things that apply to me Noamy... Anyone thats ever heard me talk knows That the letter "R" doesnt exist. and yes...i do know how to pronounce Yastrzemski.

In LA all I can do is take freeways to get where I need to go. Going 10mph is still better that surface streets. I hate traffic & yes, anyone going 70 IS going too slow. :/
