So we had one of those, first-time-the-sun-has-been-0ut-for-a-long-time-so-let’s-go-to-the-Strip-District-and-shop-eat-and-bounce-off-of-people-and-almost-get-hit-by-passing-cars-but-MAN-we-had-a-great-time days last Saturday. We ate our way from one end of the Strip District to the other and then acted like spawning salmon as we worked our way back to the car before the parking time limit ran out.
The only thing between us and home is the Strip District evasive driving course of parked cars and pedestrians.. AND the Block Blocker in the photo above.
That driver who just happens to think THEIR trip home is more important than yours so they pull through and block the intersection.
Now, in previous posts, we have recommended using the rules from the Preschool game, “Red Light, Green Light,” where anyone still moving when “Red Light” is hollered, must so back to the starting line and start all over.
Can you imagine a police officer walking up to this driver and saying, “Go back up to the parking lot at 24th Street and start your ride home all over again, Bucko!” He’d be MORE ticked than getting a $100 citation!!!
Hey Block-blocking Bucko, here’s how WE see this….
We hope that you drank a ton of coffee from Prestogeorge, La Prima Espresso and an extra large Root Beer Float from Klavon’s during your day at the Strip and forgot to take a last-minute trip to the restroom before hopping in your swanky new car for the drive home. We hope that the drive home was uneventful EXCEPT for when you turned the final corner on to your street… at that point we hope you got stuck behind a dump truck, a Student Driver vehicle AND a Dodge Aspen with a “50-year Member” West Penn AAA sticker on the bumper driving 5-mph. On top of that, hopefully, your neighbor’s car was broken down across the front of your driveway even further delaying your bladder relief to the point that your eyes floated, Ya Jagoff!
