~Well kids, it has officially arrived....spring that is. How do i know for sure IT has arrived.? Well, for one thing, those lovey orange cylindrical accessories to the freeway are popping up everywhere!!! As are the black holes of doom some may call pot holes!! Now, for those of you who are not from around these parts, both these 'spring' phenomena are found on just about every road traveled. It wouldn't be so bad if these things were actually a sign of progress, but i assure you they are not!! See, for some odd reason, the powers that be around here...the road dept......don't care about our sanity. Much less our vehicles undercarriage!! I am pretty sure their protocol for the Holes of Doom are as follows:
1.ignore said hole until someone complains about it.
2.Then ignore complaint awhile.
3.Then, when complaints pile up, act as though something will be done about it.
4.Then, in an effort to appear as though it may be fixed in the near future...place one orange barrel next to said hole. In case there is a vehicle left in the city that has NOT seen it yet.
5. Then send an overpaid/under qualified/non union worker to fix hole.
6. The above worker shall throw an unusually large amount of tar/asphalt into said hole.
**note, the above action will be removed by the next winter's snow plows to reveal an even larger hole
