now clogging the internet elsewhere

30 January 2006

Looks like Chicago has a case of the Mondays.

Things I observed on the drive to school today:

  • A well-heeled woman clearly on her way to work, walking out of the Dunkin’ Donuts where she has stopped to get coffee and discovering that her shiny new silver sport utility wagon ™ has been loaded onto a tow truck. The tow truck is still in front of the Dunkin’ Donuts, so she approaches him, tries to convince him to give her a break, but he’s having none of it, wants the revenue, hands her a business card and drives away as she loudly and repeatedly yells a word that rhymes with “duck”.
  • Not one but two cars pulled over on the 4 mile stretch of a particular street down which I drive to get to school. Happy Monday, here’s a speeding ticket!
  • A law student who shall remain nameless trying three (3) times, unsuccessfully, to park in front of the café so she can just get a freaking cup of coffee and a bagel already and honestly do the high school students on their way to school really need to be walking by right now to witness this astonishing display of parking mediocrity?
Of course, as soon as this unnamed law student got to school she executed a flawless parallel parking job with only an inch to spare in front and in back. Where were the high school witnesses THEN, I ask you?
