We took a secret trip down to Florida over the weekend in order to help surprise my dad for his 50th birthday (pictures will soon follow). From our house in Charleston to my parents house in West Palm Beach is about an 8 hour drive. With 7 of those hours being on I-95. The most boring, empty expanse of the highway I think I've ever seen. And while we were on our trek, I remembered why I hated it so much. So here's my list of things that I just love about this particular interstate. And when I say "love", I really mean LOATHE.
* No matter what time of day, there is ALWAYS some sort of construction in Georgia. Never fails.
* Jacksonville. In the rain. 'Nuff said.
* Idiots who think that they need their left turn signal to merge right. I saw this more than once.
*Getting off at an exit because you think the gas price is really great, filling up, and then realizing that the exit a couple miles down has gas for 16 cents cheaper.
*People who come flying up on your butt in the fast lane and when you let them pass and get back behind them, they slow down.
*Kamikaze birds that think your windshield will make the perfect tool for committing suicide.
