What a nightmare getting to work today.
Leave home to find the garbage guys took the yard waste. But there was Sticks and leaves pine pines everywhere!! had to clean it up..
Ok lets get to work. Start scooter.. putt putt putt
Drive out to Lawrence and start making the left to get to warden. Crossing 6 lanes. at lane 2 the bike runs out of gas.. Not enough time to switch to reserve before I get squashed.. run it to the center turning lane.
Ok. relax, switch to reserve and go. It revs to 10000000000 billion rpm… Must have missed the gear so I clutch in and find gear. It was in?? I took it out and then shifted back. Hmm weird…
I must be tired. I make a u-turn on warden to get to the local gas station. Make the right heading away from work only to find the gas station there is closed..
Now I’m heading the wrong way and running out of gas.
Find an esso station close to the DVP.
Pump credit doesn’t work have to go in and line up..
Now I’m starting to see red.
Fill up and head on my way…
Relax. Get on the dvp. It moving so slowly in rush hour that It will be a nice cruise to work..
