This Turtleboy was driving down Pleasant Street in Worcester, because I’ll basically do anything to avoid the abortion of a light at the intersection of Park Ave and Chandler Street, especially during rush hour on a Friday. Then this happened:
And it needs to be addressed. Anyone who drives on Park Ave during rush hour should be hung their toes and have tomatoes thrown at them. There is simply no excuse for it. Ever. Like, if you saw this gigantic line of morons going nowhere, and you thought yourself, “I’m gonna jump in that clusterfuck” then just go ahead and kill yourself now. Is your sense of direction that useless that you can’t figure out how to maneuver the side streets? I can get all the way from Webster Square to WPI without touching Park Ave once. It’s a city. There are side streets EVERYWHERE that run parallel with Park Ave. Florence to Dewey Street. Use it.
If you haven’t figured out how they work yet then you have no business driving in the city. Move to Colrain or some place God awful place filled with dumb people where traffic will never, ever be an issue.
Oh yea, and the dingbat in the red car and in the white CRV should be castrated. No questions asked. Their crimes are unforgivable. They are savages. If you see that the light is green, you don’t have permission to go through it unless you are guaranteed safe passage ALL THE WAY THROUGH to the other side. Period. When you know the next light that all these idiots are stuck at is the Chandler Street/Park Ave light, then you know that those people aren’t moving for a while. Don’t get in the way of the civilized people who are trying to drive down Pleasant Street.
