yeah you heard me right... but how often do I rant and rave?

The other day whilst driving someone to their destination. (taxi drivers have nothing on me)...there is a construction zone nearby their work.

They are building some new offices...(as if we need more). The young man had dutifully set up traffic cones. I approached. The young man held up his sign "SLOW"

I stopped. Before me was such a maze of cones that I had no idea where I was supposed to go. Now...I know you are going to say.. "dang woman drivers". Now you know I can read minds lol.

I was quite prepared to go "SLOW". The entry to the parking lot I was heading to was not included in the cone arrangement.

So I had to thread-the-needle through it all to get to the parking lot.

Yes, I went slow.

The point I am making here is this isn't the first time. So often of late the cones (done by different construction crews I might add) are set up like some web made by a spider on LSD.

There was even one instance that a bus was unable to make a turn because the cones were not set up properly.

I think I have the answer to the problem. They need a training film or a class. Traffic Safety Cones 101.

Yeah, they wonder where the idea for coneheads came from lol.
