What used to take two hours now takes all day, Huh - it took me sixteen hours to get to L.A.

While traveling down an old two-lane highway there are cosmic laws that dictate:
  • You will inevitably find yourself behind an idiot that believes the speed limit hovers somewhere between 35-45; a minimum of 10 mph less than the actual, posted, speed limit.
  • When you're in a no-passing section of highway there will be no other vehicles as far as the eye can see.
  • Once you reach a passing zone, every vehicle within a 70 mile radius will suddenly be in the oncoming traffic lane thwarting any and all attempts to pass the idiot hovering between 35-45 mph.
  • And last, but certainly not least, as soon as the end is in sight - as soon as you see your turn approaching and you take a deep breath of thanks that you will finally be rid of the idiot - the idiot will put on his turning signal indicating his intent to continue on in your same general direction.

Haha..that is so true. It happens to me all the time. At first I was annoyed but now I find it amusing.
