25.10.2007 – Thursday 25 October – Monopods & Insane Traffic
- • I slept in, arriving at work late.
- • Today must be the day for stupid drivers. Driving to South Bank, down Coronation Drive, on our way to get a Cold Rock Supershake and then on to Photo Continental to buy a monopod, Maz and I were wondering why traffic was flowing so slowly—cars had taken over one of the outbound lanes and were using it to drive into the city, despite being blatantly illegal to do so. This meant cars heading out of the city had to merge back into themselves when they all of a sudden found a lane of traffic heading towards themselves, and had a lot of difficulty turning right as they had to try and sneak a spot in amongst cars going the other way.
Then, later, after a huge downpour, some lightning, dinner at McDonald’s with Maz, and shortly after driving through a puddle large enough to drown a car in, I found myself driving into a car driving the wrong way down a one-way street at me. Fortunately they pulled into a parking area before being squashed.
