Scoot Commute

Gaaaah, just drive already!

Posted in Daily Commute, Honda Elite 250 CH250 (1986) by sbahn on 2014/03/14

Will someone who drives a car please explain to me why, why do some drivers fiddle fart around, stop to let cars in from a side street without regard to how the random stopping will affect the cars following behind, and just sort of meander with no particular destination in mind.

I don’t get the meandering. This isn’t summer, cruising up and down Broad Street, looking for your homeboyz and chicas. That, I get. But it’s currently freezing cold, after work time, don’t you want to get home or to the pub or wherever you’re going?

My usual response is to just pass these cars, but, for some reason that I don’t understand, I’ve been really good lately by not breaking more than a few driving laws. Maybe it’s because I’m on the Elite, which is bigger than the Buddy and has crappy drum brakes. I’ve convinced myself, despite how much I enjoy riding it, that it’s a death trap. It sure is a plush ride, though.

By the time I got to Elmwood Avenue I was so frustrated that I started screaming and shaking my left fist (thanks Honda Elite for rendering the left hand extraneous). “I hate you people. Just drive. Drive! Drive, I said. Driiiiiive!” I gave a couple of pedestrians a good laugh.
