I normally have an uneventful journey home, rush hour traffic, occasional overtaking moment.
Yesterday, while wanting to get home for a lovely anniversary meal, was slightly different.
Immediately on leaving work was some plonker who didn't know which lane he wanted to sit on to enter a roundabout so decided to use both!
A little further on was a stretch of road with a 50 limit, dual carriageway, again someone driving at 40 in the outside lane!
. After deciding to pass on the inside he decides to finally move into the inside lane without indicating. (please no lectures about undertaking, this is my rant)
Then, and this is the biggest ****er, two tractors holding up a queue of traffic, one turns off, the other proceeds for 12 miles with a queue of traffic at speeds of between 35 and 40 on an NSL road, passing numberous lay-byes. When I get to a point that I can pass him, he's on some kind of freaking radio
. If I hadn't had somewhere to go I would have followed him to where he was going and probably shouted at him from inside my car.
Not only did my 50 minute journey take 1hr 15mins, but when I got home, the wife hadn't put a bottle of fizz in the fridge. Made up with that mistake with a nice meal.
