Commuting as a source of entertainment!
||Some people commute. I am a migrant Real Estate worker. Commuting is for amateurs! I schedule my appointments around Oahu based mostly on what time the schools get out, what time the Pearl Harbor workers get out, what time the Govt. workers get out, what time everybody else gets out and in what direction they drive.|
|That’s enough of a challenge; beyond that it is the other drivers who should not be on the road given their ADHD to actually driving. Put on that mascara, you in the white Lexus! Keep that slobbering lap dog between you and the steering wheel, you blue Honda you! Hey Mister Garbage truck! How about a tarp over all that stuff flying out the back into my windshield! Minivan Mom! Stop backing up into me, hello? Use a rear view mirror much? Oh yea, to put on your makeup…And you! Cell Phone Guy! Quit taking both hands off the steering wheel to gesticulate while you’re talking!
Have no fear; my days of fuming and plotting revenge on the H1 parking lot are over, thanks to a great new site: Zapatag! At Zapatag you can post the bad drivers plate number and boneheaded moves for all to see! And not just for us Hawaii folks; any state is fair game. Well, maybe that’s not revenge in the purest sense, but we Zapataggers know who you are! And now so does the rest of the Internet!
The comments are great, sarcasm is the preferred flavor of the day, and it’s really entertaining reading the posts! For example, HeatherLynn80 posts an Oregon Plate: “ Dear stupid boys, I understand that you feel the need to show off in your super cool ford fusion with the sweet ass Raiders sticker on the back, but please; riding my ass, flashing your ligh…” *sigh* I’ll never know the rest of her thought process. NctrnlBst zapatags a Hawaii plate; “Illegally parked! Stay within the lines… The Lines are our friends!” And I LOVE kilinahe ‘s comment “I know ‘right of way’ is a difficult concept for someone driving a condo on wheels, but there’s a reason why we were all stopped at the crosswalk. Wait your damn turn.”
Of course, the challenge is to Zapatag while driving and retain concentration on the traffic around us, but we Zapataggers are great multi-taskers. Or like me, a delayed zapatagger, I’ll voice record it into my G1 and do it later. Unless I forget…
So relax,commute chill, keep an eye on how you are driving. Somebody might just Zapatag you!
