Potholes and Pissy People

November 15, 2004

I know that I should be happy that Seton Hill is finally fixing the massive quantities of potholes in the road on the way up the hill. I should be thrilled that said potholes will be fixed and filled in before the winter season hits full force and said potholes become filled with ice and grow even larger. I should be happy and I know this.

So why was I sitting in my car in front of a construction worker this morning at quarter til 11 feeling increasingly irritated as I tapped my fingers on the steering wheel wishing dude would hurry the hell up because there's nothing I hate more than walking into class late?

And why, after ten minutes, when I finally got to move again, along with the long line of cars behind me only to get stuck after the first bend waiting while some dude used a giant rotary blade to hack into the sidewalk, a tool that I fear could easily dismember a line of students or tear my car in half, why did I feel as though I would surely start screaming any moment now?

And why, when I thought about the fact that hello, it's monday morning - people have class, damnit! and refreshed my memory about the astronomical cost of my college education here, why did I get so freaking pissed off? Sure, this could have been done on Saturday and Sunday, but hey! I should be happy, right? Argh.

Moira, dear, there is a back way into the school passed Caritas Christi. There's no need to worry... breathe, breathe. ;o)

Those potholes were terrible. I could not even really drive my one car to school at all, because it is lowered. I know what you mean about those saw things though, OMG, I was stressing when they were doing that next to me too!! =(
