Miscellaneous Irritants - Rant
We are not supposed to sweat the small stuff yada yada yada. A lot of the small stuff is what makes the temper boil. For instances, this roadside history exhibit. Someone, or some group, went to a lot of effort to create something pleasing, informative, and a tribute to a lot of hard working people. Then someone comes along and steals the information plaque.
My workday starts at 5 a.m. Every morning I see vehicles with headlights out or misaimed. Then you have the "lifted" big tired trucks or the high discharge lights. As I get older, the glare is a problem for me. I remember a time when law enforcement ticketed headlight violations with a vengeance. More than once, I saw them using a tape measure to see if the vehicle and lights were legal heights. Then again, I am such an old fart I remember synchronised traffic lights.
Guess I will continue to be irritated by the "small stuff". Probably a character defect.
