10 Houston Drivers You Know Or Are One Of
Ahhh!!! It's Raining! Everyone Drive Like This Is The First Time They've Ever Driven Before!
Given our proximity and standard weather patterns, one would think we would be used to the amount of rain that we get annually. Sometimes it rains a lot, and sometimes we all say, "Wow, we need the rain," during our small talk exchanges. But it could rain every day for the rest of our lives and we Houstonians would drive like it was our first time. Every sprinkling is like losing our virginity on prom night; we are in an intense state of panic, have no idea what the hell is going on and so we close our eyes and hope for the best.
It's 2 p.m./4.a.m./11 p.m./any time Of The Day, Of Course There's Traffic.
It is not the fault of Houstonians that no matter what time of the day or night it is there will be traffic wherever you go, but I do have to ask where everyone is going all the time? It is more the fault of expansion and construction that is necessary for the city's growth, but hell if it doesn't feel totally confused, disorganized and EVERYWHERE. It's as if the city's planning committee just threw darts at a map and wherever the darts landed, that's where construction would take place. But they threw 15,000 darts and they were drunk and thought it would be hilarious to have all of this construction happen on Saturday afternoons when everyone is trying to get to the Galleria for a sale at Macy's.
