God gave us brains for SOMETHING

On Friday night, I was driving home after dinner and right off the Federal Highway, in the middle of the road, was this extremely slow motorcyclist. I was about to honk him for stalling and blocking traffic, when I saw his L plate, and that he was just a boy.

So, being the soft-hearted person I am, I had to brake abruptly and try to change lanes, which was difficult as other cars were zooming by as well. Then I saw that this L biker was following his older brother, who was on another bike, waving at him and guiding him on the road. Well, on its own, it's quite sweet that he's teaching his younger brother how to ride, but what the heck... freaking barely off the highway, late on a Friday night?? Does he want to get his younger brother killed?


Last night I was meeting Sharry Berry and friends at La Bodega Telawi to say farewell to Julz (who's back to Melbourne today) and to also celebrate his birthday today. Weeknights are usually good parking down the McDonald's row, in front of Poh Kong and Saravana Bhavan. As expected, I found a spot and turned into it. There was a big Indian family who had just parked next to my spot and who were halfway alighting from their car.

So I waited for them to remove themselves from my space.

There was a man who had alighted from the passenger seat, who was just standing there, in my space, looking into the middle distance, dreaming. And at the backseat, a fat woman was waiting for another fat woman to come out. Obviously they were blocking me so I waited politely. But how long does it take before you start to lose patience with people getting out of their car?

The fat woman finally got out of the car, and the first fat woman took her hand, held it and they both started talking to each other for a few seconds. Geez, man! Then after the clenching of hands together, they slowly waddle away, and I inch forward and the bloody man is STILL standing in my space, dreaming. With me inching towards him, fire in my eyes, he finally realises about one foot away from my car, turns and walks slowly back out to the shops.

OMG I hate stupid people!!!

Federal Highway has a dedicated lane for motorcyclists. So you were right in the first place when you were thinking of stomping down the car horn.
