I was driving down the road which leads to my apartment complex and there were traffic cones set up on the ground and security officers standing on either side of them.
Please, think about this for a moment. THERE ARE CONES IN THE ROAD. THERE ARE OFFICERS POSTED ON EACH SIDE OF THEM. What would you do? You don’t drive right through them. You STOP and try to figure out which lane is still open on which to continue driving. In this case, it was the left turn lane. I rolled down my window and explained to the officer that I live in the apartment complex down the road and there isn’t another way to get to it. His response: “Then why are you in the left turn lane?” Uh, I don’t know, asshole. Maybe because there are cones cordoning off the other lanes and this is the only one open? I said, “Well, there are cones in the road. I didn’t think I could go through them.” “You’re in the left turn lane. You have to turn left.” “I’m sorry. I didn’t think I was just allowed to drive through the cones you have set up.”
The officer was incredibly rude to me and was talking at me like I was stupid and inferior. I fucking hate good-for-nothing cops. Policemen are supposed to exist to keep the peace and stop bad people from doing bad things, not to use their “power” as an excuse to be an asshole to whomever they please.
Motherfucker pissed me off. I’m still fuming right now.
UGH THERE ARE NO GOOD UNITED STATES OF TARA GIFSETS FOR ME TO REBLOG AND I JUST FINISHED THE SHOW AND I’M SAD IT’S OVER FOREVER, SO THAT MEANS I’LL BE MAKING A BUNCH OF GIFS TOMORROW SO EVERY USOT FAN WILL HAVE AN ACCEPTABLE GIFSET OF ALL THE ALTERS TO REBLOG BECAUSE USOT DESERVES IT.
I hate them. My entire life has been deadline-oriented and just thinking about that kind of rigidity makes my blood boil. EVERYTHING has a deadline. I’m a leisurely kind of guy. Why can’t I just promise you that what needs to get done will get done eventually? Life would be far less stressful if we didn’t all have to rush and freak out trying to get everything done “on time.” It’s scientifically proven that doing things slower decreases stress. I just wish I didn’t have to force myself to abide by someone else’s idea of the timeline my life should be lived according to.
