It sucks driving to work on a Monday morning.
It sucks even more having to drive to work on a Monday morning in the rain.
It really sucks having to drive to work on a Monday morning, in the rain, behind a police car that just turned onto the street up ahead.
Because no matter how slow they drive (and of course they drive as s-l-o-w-l-y as legally possible) no one has the guts to pass them. It doesn't matter that we are all law-abiding citizens. All the traffic slowed down too.
Stay out of their sight! Don't do anything stupid!
Are my tail lights working? Gad, I didn't do my "walk around the car checking them all before every trip" this morning. To be honest, I have NEVER done my "walk around the car checking all the lights". Ever. (Well, not since that day I got my licence in 1976).
Is my insurance sticker still stuck to my licence? I put it on in February... maybe it fell off.
Are my windows clear? Are my tires inflated properly?
Stupid police car.
But I knew the snail-like procession wouldn't have to crawl behind them much longer. There was a Tim Horton's up ahead.
Yup. True to form, the Call of the Donut saved Rush Hour once again.
After they turned off, we all rushed past to make up for lost time.
