I always make the mistake of thinking that it will only take x minutes to get to my destination–usually based on distance and speed. So, for instance, if I’m driving somewhere that’s 20 miles away, I think I should be able to get there in 20 minutes. Of course, that’s totally disregarding the fact that not all of those miles will be on roads where the speed limit is 60mph, and I will inevitably get stuck behind the big truck with the crap hanging out of it that probably shouldn’t even be on the road, but they are and they’re traveling the same damn route that I am (with white smoke billowing out of their tailpipe and like four grown men crammed into the cab, and they’re laughing and the driver is talking on his phone and one of them throws a cigarette out the window and they’re probably getting paid by the hour and they don’t really care if it takes them all day to get where they’re going).
You get the idea. When will I ever learn?
Would you look at the time? I meant to go to bed early tonight. Oops.REPORT ABUSE
