Today just before lunch time I found myself on I-95 Northbound coming out of the exit 7 area of Coventry, RI and heading toward Bald HIll Road in Warwick, RI.
To get there you have to be in the extreme left lane because the ramp for I-295 North is on the left hand side.
Now the left speed in my opinion is for ludicrous speed – minimum 75MPH and higher. So I’m clipping along at about 80MPH when I see brake lights ahead of me. I slam on mine. We went from 80MPH down to 40MPH in the space of a few seconds.
The reason – some asshole decided to jack up on the brakes of their card and fuck everything up.
A pox upon that person who decided it’d be fun to drop the speed in half. But to add insult to injury then they decided to speed up again.
We got to our destination and did what we had to do. The next episode happened when we were close to home.
To come home I take I-95 North again and then merge onto RI Route 10. RI-10 is a big bypass road that loops around I-95 and from there I take the Olneyville/Westminster St. exit, go east on Westminster St. to go north on Barton St. and then it’s a right off Barton onto Broadway and I’m almost home.
But the next major intersection up is Tobey St. There’s a traffic light there. I have the green light but some ass in a blue SUV decides to run the light. And of course said asshole just blocks the eastbound side of Broadway because now traffic is flowing. I lay on the horn, he throws the finger. I’m like “Hey asshole – you ran the light, not me. ”
Driving isn’t fun anymore.
