Meter Light Game
This is one of those blogs that must be written because it proves my point that the world is full of moronic idiots. So here goes. I’m driving to work one early morning wishing that I was still in bed and not having to face the day ahead. I drive my car to the freeway on-ramp and low and behold the “Meter On” light is flashing. Crap! This means, getting on the ramp and waiting as the little frigging light at the top of the ramp turns “red” to stop or “green” to go. So the game begins. The cars are piled back to the start of the ramp and I barely squeeze my game piece into the long line. I check my phone while I’m waiting to inch my game piece a little further up the ramp. A very few seconds pass and I realize that the player ahead of me hasn’t moved. My eyes gaze up to the very first game piece at the top of the ramp and then I notice it. The red/green light is a solid GREEN! WTF! GO you moron! These imbeciles in the cars ahead of me all sit there like a bunch of sheeple waiting for player number one to lead the way. No one honks their horn they just sit there oblivious to the fact that their fearless leader is holding up this long line of cars.
I think to myself, doesn’t the leader in this freeway game know the rules? We all take the same driving test and each one of us uses this same ramp everyday like the good little sheeple should. So why does this one stupid driver not notice that the light is GREEN? “&%#$*&^%$#” I say to myself as I hit my horn. Beep, beep, friggin beep! Suddenly, the other players in the freeway game come to life and they too begin honking their horns as if they knew all along what was wrong with the game. The leader of the game is now confused and doesn’t want to risk going forward because that light might just turn red and he doesn’t want to get a ticket from the game master. So our leader waits just a few more seconds and the game players in the cars behind him are getting angrier, the horns are blaring and one irate player pulls out of the pack moving his game piece into the carpool lane and heads up the ramp. Now that player is bold, a winner in the game of freeway driving. Not wanting to lose the game, our leader, eases his game piece on to the freeway and two other game pieces follow him.
Now the game is moving and all the players will get to their sheeple posts on time. But suddenly the strategy of the game changes and the frickin red/green light decides it’s now ready to flash RED! WTF! Okay, so I lost the game today but in my mind I’m already thinking about what strategic move to use tomorrow.
