Things I Wondered Today

Today must have been one of those days where I tried to make sense of many things. It started when I read the morning paper and found an article about a 7 time drunk driver being caught once again. Why wasn't he in jail? How did he slip by the system? On to the next article of interest...The man who was being charged with drunk driving that had his three kids in the car and one was killed, two others were injured. Why was he driving around drunk with his kids in the car. I know there are two sides to every story but why do people put their kids lives in danger?
On to work where on the way I wondered why a truck driving with an odd shaped sign reading "Support your Local Police Department" would be totally holding up traffic on the freeway. Guess he got everyone's attention.
My work day brought on several more questions. Why did we work so much overtime and so many odd hours to meet our production goals and then we are shut down for 4 hours today so they can do some wiring. Save it for Saturday. Why is our new maintenance man such a bs..er, and am I the only one who see's this? I avoid asking him for anything as I know it's going to be at least a 15 minute explanation which has nothing to do with what I asked him. Why does he wait until 15 minutes before we're shutting down for the day to start cleaning things up? And why does he think he can send 2 people to break and then walk away with no one watching the machine. If I could have found a nice solid pole nearby I would have been banging my head upon it today. My need to chew gum has intensified greatly in the past several weeks due to my gritting my teeth when he's around. If I don't chew the gum I'm afraid I won't have any teeth left.
After work...Why is it snowing again? Don't we have enough? Why was my car the only one in the parking lot that had ice under the snow? Maybe because it's a truck and higher up? Beats me. At least it didn't have goose crap all over it like the car next to me. I did get a chuckle out of that one. Nice frozen crap right on the windshield. To bad it was someone I liked and not maintenance man.
On the freeway I wondered why there was a 7 car pile up on the westbound side. It didn't look like anyone was hurt but the cars didn't look all that great. As ususal this caused a delay due to the gappers. Then I have to be in front of the jerk at the exit that clearly says "NO TURN ON RED" and he has to lay on his horn. To be a smart ass I should have sat there through the light but it wouldn't be fair to the one's in back of it. My thought on that one...Why are there idiot's?

If you are obeying the sign, then screw the guy behind you. You should have gotten out of the truck, walked to the sign, and told the idiot if he blows his horn again, you will ensure nothing of his is ever blown again.

Idiots exist because God has a sense of humor. You(in general) are happy that you are not as dumb as they are. Kinda like watching Springer so you can feel better about yourself.
