Dear Fellow Drivers; A Nice Thursday Rant.

Dear Fellow Schuykill Interstate Drivers,

That misting precipitation you see falling from the sky? That's called rain. Now, unless you've been living in either the Sahara Desert or the Tundra for the last, oh I don't know, one hundred years, I know this isn't the first time you've experienced a drizzle. Contrary to popular belief, neither you nor your vehicle will melt once in contact with said drizzle. I know! Sounds crazy, but believe me. I only speak the truth.

And just because there's this little stretch of highway, less than a mile long, might I add, that is often referred to as "The Conshohocken Curve," it does not mean that you need to adjust your speed from the regulated 55 mph to a mere crawl, just so that you can navigate a slight bend in the road. This is how accidents happen, people!

In closing, all I ask is that you please, stop driving like complete and total morons.

Many thanks,

Ashley Paige

  7. Oh I know that stretch of road and it's just awful. I couldn't imagine having to navigate that everyday, especially on rainy days when common sense seems to abandon other drivers.

  10. Preach it sista! Some people are really horrible at driving in ANY weather condition, but through in a little bit of rain and an inch of snow, and they are completely lost!

  11. I live in the D.C. area - people forget how to function when they even see a raindrop - I completely sympathize!

    Just so you know I tagged you in an award on my blog! :)
