This is my day so far. Enjoy.
8:45am – Holy Shit moment.
This is the time that I realized I was supposed to be in North Andover for a continuing education class (for work). However, I was at my desk in Boston, talking to my Mom (who turns 75 today, Happy Birthday Mom) because I completely forgot about it.
9:07am – Jesus Christ Moment
This is when I realized I would have to pay $37.00 upon exiting the parking garage because the early bird special rate of $20.00 only applies if you enter before 7:30am and leave after 4pm.
9:23am – God Damn It Moment
(Yeah, it got better.) This is when I realized I was driving to an appointment that would require me to present a valid government issued ID. This normally isn’t a problem but my license expired on August 19th and I haven’t had a chance to renew it yet. This is also normally a non-issue because I have a passport that I carry in my work bag. However, I left that particular bag under my desk, in Boston. And I was already in Somerville.
9:24am – Holy Shit Moment #2
You wouldn’t believe the amount of traffic heading back into town. It took me 25 minutes to get from Charlestown to my building near the aquarium.
1:30pm – Jesus Christ Moment #2
The Continuing Ed class was complete, and I was on my way back into town. While cruising at a very high rate of speed, I began to quickly approach a slowpoke in the left lane. No Problem. I noticed a way around the cars in front of me, but it would take a three lane pass. However, when I got into the far right lane, I was blocked by one of the middle lane cars. I looked to the left and noticed a car in my blind spot. It was too close. It would’ve been dangerous to cut in front of it.
So under my breath I uttered something like “Well, are you going to speed up or slow down. Jesus Christ.”
And with that, they sped up. And as I looked over I saw this.
Pretty damn funny.
I’m now parked at a meter, so I’m guessing my God Damn It Moment #2 will be when I get to my car after work and find a ticket, even though I’m paying the meter.
Ouch, you Fat Penquin
