My evening babysitting got cancelled, and I just awoke from a long sleep (about 4-4.5 hours). I'm sure I'll take a nap at some point tomorrow, but I'll probably be able to make it a shortish one so I can sleep somewhat normally tomorrow night (and finish moving tomorrow). I've got 3 hours before I have to leave, so I should get at least a good 2 hours of packing in (plus dinner and getting ready for tonight's job). Yes, my new place should be a lot less crazy.
Glad you got some rest and some sorta-off day today, Blue. Pickles, glad everyone's mostly better. Hope you're able to take some allergy medicine (or at least it doesn't get too bad). You certainly had to deal with some rudeness today. I was curious, and I found out that only in my state would that photographer have been acting illegally (though the article was a bit out of date, and it said other states were contemplating similar measures).
I guess the best course of action would be to get between them and the kids and give them a raised eyebrow.
Some drivers are so clueless. I've been behind people who do that with other cars (or once, I was even the car they were trying to let turn left), but oncoming traffic was still moving. I always just wave them on until they give up (or honk at them if I'm behind them and they continue for more than a few seconds). I'll be glad to move away from my current area; there are a lot of new drivers here (and a high amount uninsured) from all over the world, and they don't know the unspoken rules of the road (or even the legal ones), so it's a bit frustrating. I always just insist on following the law, because if they do decide to go after letting me go and we collide, legally, I'm the one at fault.
(There's a regular 2-way stop near my old place near a railroad crossing, and there are stop lines for the people with no stop sign, so it confuses people. I get it for the ones approaching the railroad, because it sort of says "don't block the intersection," but a sign would be less confusing -- and it makes absolutely NO sense for there to be a stop line for the people coming over the railroad tracks, because when they accidentally stop, the people behind them get stuck on the tracks... It's the worst intersection signage/markings combination I've ever seen. They did at least remove the "2-way" signs under the stop signs, which many people didn't read and assumed it was the regular "all-way" sign, but they added the stop lines for the people with the right-of-way after taking down those signs...)
Wow, guess I'm still a bit tired. Sorry for writing a novel here!
