Does any of this sound familiar to some of my fellow “Wet Coast” residents?
But the very worst part? The way people drive here in the rain. Ninety percent of the drivers seem to fall into one of two categories: (1) the “drive 20 mph over the speed limit like you would any other day, don’t bother to turn your headlights on, and pretend it’s not even raining” people, and (2) the “slow down to 15 mph, grip the steering wheel with white knuckles of death, and drive as though the world is coming to an end” people. The number one people area always crashing into the number two people, and that just makes traffic that much worse for the handful of absolutely perfect drivers out there like me.
Yah, I thought so too.
Strangely enough though, that’s from the lovely Martha, who lives in Phoenix.
PHOENIX Y’ALL! It doesn’t even get actual weather! Just sun. And apparrently a bit of rain. THEY HAVE AN EXCUSE.
In Vancouver? It. Always. Rains. A lot. We are internationally known for the vast number of days of the year where precipitation falls from the sky. WE HAVE NO EXCUSE! We should be GOOD at driving in the rain. And yet, we are not.
Actually, I am. What the hell is wrong with the rest of you?
