On my commute home, there’s this short light that keeps our street backed up for two to three light cycles. It’s where I usually check my email and texts because I’m going to be sitting for a while. I know this. We all know this. We all know that in order to cross over this one busy highway, we have to do our penance and sit and wait for the light to change, and when it does, it feels three seconds long. WE ALL KNOW THIS. IT DOES NOT CHANGE.
But this motherfucker:
Gets in the left-only turning lane, bypassing everyone, and then jets back over into our lane. I could understand if this was an “oops! Got in the wrong lane!” Or “Didn’t realize this was turn-only!” Whatever. I’m super forgiving for things like that because I do things like that. Because I’m terrible with directions and can totally get how you end up going the wrong way down a one-way street (twice) because it’s dark and you might need glasses. I get it.
But this motherfucker does this nearly *EVERY SINGLE DAY. We’re apparently on the same route home, and every day she whips past me, right to the front of the line. Then she slows down, puts on her blinker, and waits for the light to change. And I’m looking around like, am I the only person who’s seeing this? Can we all agree that this SAME CAR is doing this SAME JACKASS THING every day? Why haven’t we rioted against her? We need to unite and riot against her! Then the light turns green and someone lets her in.
*Every. Single. Day.
In other news, I started writing Return to Dellapalania. (YAY!!!) I haven’t touched Arizal Wars for a long time because I’ve been preoccupied with BTT. Mind you, I’ve been writing AW since 2011, so when a sexy side-series sashayed my way, it was hard to decline the temptation. 😊 Anyways, I’m three pages in and excited! To be honest, BTT was just the break I needed because now I feel refreshed and revamped and ready to go. I’d like to say this one will be ready next year, but I don’t want to say that. Not yet. I will when I’m more than three pages in and have an idea. Still. Good vibes, guys. Good gives 😊
Except for that bitch who cuts in line in traffic. She can eat a donkey dick.
*I’d be lying if I said it was every day. It happens more like 2-3 times a week, which is plenty often to be considered a jackass if you ask me.

I have the exact same thing happen on my commute every day! Except it’s on the opposite side, someone always tries to cut from the right-turning lane into the through lane at the light. One of these days I’m just going to nudge the gas and bump the guy when he cuts me off. 😐
Congrats on starting your new book! It’s always fun to start something new (which is why I have like 6 half-finished books lying around…)
I’m so sorry but that had me laughing–I feel your pain and understand. You have a way with words. 🙂
Congrats on the new start, sometimes that is just the right kick we need.
It’s like children. They get away with it once, they’ll keep doing it until someone finally sets them straight. Makes me wonder if they even realize they’re being a jackass.
Woot for the burst of writing energy!
