Doctor Lazarus

(no subject)

As my beloved wife likes to say, "I hate people!"

I left my house at 7:30 this morning. Normally, it takes me 40-50 minutes to drive to work. As I was approaching my exit, it was around 8:15, and things were looking OK. As I rounded the corner, I saw a line of traffic that stretched for nearly a mile. They were doing construction on the exit, and people were using the shoulder to exit from the highway. Knowing that this would take forever and a day, I bypassed the exit and drove to the next one, which was 5 miles away (BTW, private note to Indiana DOT: Put in a fucking exit for Township Line Road or Ditch Road). I got to that exit, and things were slightly better. There was only a half-mile backup on this one. I sat in traffic for 15 minutes in a hot, non-air-conditioned car. I finally got to my office at 8:50, so my morning is off to a rousing start.
