They are paving the road on my way to work. This is a small intersection with a single traffic light. No turn green arrows; just the usual three: Red (stop) Green (go) and Yellow (Go fast, light is about to turn red).
When I got to this intersection this morning on my way to work, there was construction. Why road folks always seem to be repaving road that doesn’t need it is beyond me. I mean, if you really wanted to work on roads that needed it, I should mention that you can’t drive HWY 42 without a good support bra.
But this morning there was the road crew and this guy:
Who made me sit through 12 lights before he allowed our side of the road through the construction.
I couldn’t help myself; I yelled “YOU SUCK!” as I drove past. Of course, my window was up and my radio was on really loud. But it did make me feel better.
