Curse the drivers

I was late getting into work this morning.

There wasn’t a snowstorm nor was there an accident. Instead there was a car and a truck at the side of the highway and then another car and a tractor-trailer on the side of the highway a little further along.

They didn’t hit each other. There was no broken glass or smashed vehicles. There were no flashing lights of a police car, tow truck or ambulance. There were no people trying to flag us down or dodge between cars.

There were just four vehicles at the side of the road.

But those vehicles had hundreds of people in their cars stopped on Hwy. 404, moving less than five kilometres per hour for several exits.

People, if you want to gawk become a passenger. Don’t waste my time.

I agree with you, drivers gawk tooooooooo much. If you want to gawk, become a passenger.

Personally, only in Canada do you see gawkers.

I guess Canadians are blood thirsty.

That is annoying. You wonder what the hold up is only to find out it's nothing. People make it worse by gawking!

Stopping by from SITS - have a great day :)
