Junction mania

I almost hit another car today. I just don’t understand why people cannot treat the junction outside my house like a junction. You’re supposed to stop at a junction and see if there are any oncoming cars. But they stubborn drivers just don’t. They stop at every other junction but never at the junction near my place.

As I was almost at the junction I had to slow down for Mr. Opportunistic. Upon seeing me come, regardless of whether I was making a turn or going straight at him had he come out, he drove out anyway. Like always I approached quite close to him because he had to take his time making the turn. Fine. I’ll let you pass. But thing is, Mr. Pimple Face behind him is kinda dense. Seeing that I was going straight, he decided to speed out anyway. I don’t know. Maybe he wants to die. Or maybe he wants his parents to buy him a new car.


I had to come to an emergency halt and Mr. Pimple Face-Initial D-Jay Chou-wannabe-with-his-tilted-head could only put on a ‘oops…sorry’ face. Had I hit him he’d be in a sorry state alright. And he’ll just be a pain in my ass. He better remember this junction for the rest of his sorry life.

Then there was this other time when Mr. Impatient & co. honked at me. I don’t know how to explain this. Look at the diagram.



Hello? What the fuck is wrong with you?

This somehow made me link it to the oncoming elections. For 10 years people living here have been complaining about this junction and asking the authorities to put up a sign or just do something about it, but they just turned a deaf ear to us. We do have good patience, don’t we? Give us a good reason why we should elect you, whoever you may be.

Lol, Mr Opportunistic is Dr. Evil xD

And speaking of elections, the elected representative at my area isn't doing a good job either. First, he assured us he'd rebuild the non-flowing drain around my house. Second, we see him scouting the area the next few days.

The last we heard from him, he says our area has run out of budget. (!!!)

That's the last we heard from him.

CY - Run out of budget! I bet now he says he has budget. You'll see him more now surely.

JC - Heh. I'm still a civilised person. Civilised people don't show fingers. They curse orally and zap people with menacing stares.

Well, when I am in Penang, I did notice that people there have this tendency to make full use of their car horn...... =p

runawaycat said...

Arbet - Yea! Run him over! :P

Cometh - Really? I've never been to East Malaysia so I can't make a comparison :)

CY said...

Should make the car horn part of our state anthem! xD
