First snow.. Now Meat…

Friday, March 24th, 2006 | Pete Stuff, Random Morsels

So, in case I haven’t mentioned it before, I have the commute of doom. I live in San Francisco and have a 45 mile drive every morning to haul my ass to Cupertino for work. I love the job and I love living in San Francisco so I don’t mind the commute – and i’m sure my Audi dealer loves it too for the same reason my Dentist loves this box of Jujyfruits sitting on my desk! 🙂

Anyway – along that commute I’ve seen all SORTS of weird things along the way. I’ve seen drivers doing the usual daily shaving, makeup, and hair. I’ve seen people reading everything from work paperwork to novels to newspapers. I’ve been nearly run off the road by people engaged in cell phone conversations – I can spot ’em 4 cars away at this point since they tend to drive by brail (those of you not in California should should read about Bott’s dots to know what I mean). I’ve even seen someone playing a Guitar while driving..

But this month has taken the cake… On my way home two Fridays ago it SNOWED on me on the way home. I’m not talking a few flakes. I’m talking the freeway was WHITE and scared drivers were on the side of the road looking confused.. it was DAMN FUNNY…

And then yesterday – there was Meat… No seriously.. MEAT ON THE FREEWAY. Driving north on 101 last night I tuned into the radio to figure out why I had been sitting still so long I had time to put the car in park and read a magazine. The traffic report informed me that a butcher truck had lost its load and there was meat on the freeway and they had closed down all 4 lanes to clear it off. When I got up to the scene later I saw what they were talking about – there was probably 3 some cows worth of butchered meat and what looked like cow or pig carcasses. REALLY FOWL. And can you imagine what it must have been like driving directly behind that truck – must have been like some strange mix of terror and incredibly funny. Stakes on your windshield..

Anyway.. Was funny – had to share! 🙂

Happy friday…
