Behold the greatness

Behold, people more special than you. I know it’s hard to tell from such a lousy picture, but these are the people whose convenience outranks even your safety. While many of us were creeping forward in yesterday’s afternoon deluge, attempting through care and reduced speed to keep safe, these four paragons of wonder decided to pull off to the side rather than continue on.

The idea of pulling over and being safe rather than sorry is a great one… if you do it in the breakdown lanes before and after the bridge. In keeping with their higher station in life, however, these jerks royalty among us decided they’d do it in one of the two traffic lanes so they could be out of the rain. Luckily they’re more important than everyone else, otherwise blocking already hindered traffic would be an amazingly asshole thing to do.

    Geez, I think it’s a judgment call. Maybe they just aren’t comfortable driving and not be able to see. I think you are too quick to judge without knowing their situation.

    If they were sitting in the middle of road, I’d question their judgment but if they pulled off to the shoulder and are out of the way of traffic, I don’t see the problem.

    You misread – the whole point was they were NOT on the shoulder. Rather than pulling to the shoulder before or after the bridge they decided to stop UNDER the bridge where there was NO shoulder, presumably so they wouldn’t have to sit in the rain. Why that was such a hardship in an enclosed car is beyond me.

    I see your point. My bad. Damn those car-driving idjits! What’s wrong with people who drive in this area?

    Just like there is no more driver etiquette – notice that no one now does the wave when you let them in, when it is very obvious that they would not have gotten in, if not for a kind driver (me!). Now, I give them the middle finger wave for not giving me the courtesy wave. :)

    Though I hope that I am not going to stoop as low as some people…maybe it’s too late.
