So I was driving to work this morning, and on one leg of my journey I drive through this nice residential neighborhood with these speed bumps to slow down traffic. I come to a stop sign, feeling more or less content with the brown sky and palm trees when a big ol' Hummer pulls out in front of me off the four way. I almost swallowed my own tongue when this rig of a car proceeded to make every effort to go AROUND the blippity boppity booby sized speed bumps! ITS A HUMMER! This is a automobile DESIGNED to go over, through, and ontop of all sorts of terrain....IT SHOULD BE ABLE TO HANDLE A @#$%**!!!!ING SPEED BUMP! This guy was taking out garbage bins and small trees in an effort to save his shocks from a little "budda bum". For some reason, this filled me with rage and humour all at the same time. Its funny, but says so much about the sorry state of western culture all at the same time, that I thought I'd put the discussion out there on the blog. When you have to take your Hummer up on the sidewalk to avoid a speedbump, I feel like theres a confusion of priorities. Its like putting your baby in a box with a lion to keep her safe from the sun.
I hope we run out of gas soon. I won't be afraid to ride my bike to work then.
