Traffic Story 1
So Kendle and I rushed out to the Skokie house after work as we were meeting my parents up there at 6:30 and yes....getting off work at 4:30 makes it a stretch to get 10 miles away by 6:30. Fucking. LOVE. this. city.
Granted we took some time to load the car up with stuff, but my statement still stands.
Well we pull into the driveway, and Kendle asks "did you bring the keys?"
Oh for FUCKS SAKE. So we drive all the way back in...and all the way back out. Instead of starting work at 6:30 when we were there, we started at almost 8:00.
We were only washing and taping the walls, but still...it sucked.
Traffic Story 2
So at one point on Saturday, Dad and I have to let coat one dry, so we drive back into the city to get the big TV. So we head down the interstate and I warn my Dad that it usually backs up at the Cicero exit.
Amazingly...it does not.
In fact we cruise all the way to the California exit in about 15 minutes. We load up the car and get back on the expressway. We were off the expressway for about 20 minutes total. As we are whizzing back to Skokie, I look at the inbound traffic, and it has jammed up something fierce! If we had waited to go by any amount of time, we would have been stuck in that mess and it would have taken alot longer for the round trip.
WHEW! Lucky us.
