Welcome to my refreshed Monday Peeve! Unburden yourself of an annoyance and you’ll feel better afterward. Or not. Complain in my comments or crab in your own post. Doesn’t have to be on a Monday. You do you.
We’ve peeved a lot about driving ~ speeders, red light runners, rude/dangerous drivers generally, etc.. Those are all great peeve topics and will likely be revisited. But what about the roads themselves? I’m a fan of well-maintained roads like any normal person, but wtf is up with the constant construction? It literally never ends around here, dunno about your part of the planet. For years, YEARS, the route I used to take to work had an overpass under construction, to the point of them occasionally blocking off the thing entirely. I think it’s finished now, though I’ve since moved and take a different route. Nowadays, I find that streets around where I live are randomly blocked for some sort of maintenance, and then a few months later, the same street is screwed up again. I don’t remember this happening all the time in the past and I don’t understand why a repair doesn’t last longer. It’s so GRRRR when I expect to mindlessly drive down a particular road to get where I need to go and then OOPSY NO ACCESS FOR YOU ~ the road is blocked off and I must detour around and around and around.
