Whose bright idea was this??

31 Thoughts All Drivers Have During The Morning Commute In The Summer, AKA Road Work SZN

Ah, it’s that time of year again. The weather is warm, the beach is packed, and the traffic is backed up ten miles off the highway because somebody thought it was a good idea to close off three out of four lanes during a rush hour commute.

We’ve all been there. Here are 31 things all drivers feel during summer, AKA Road Work SZN.

1. Okay, my GPS says traffic is pretty backed up, so I’ll leave early today!

2. Wow, the GPS wasn’t lying.

3. Am I even close to the highway?

4. Should I park my car at this light or will we ever make it through?

5. Ah, yes, please give me half a car’s length space to merge into oncoming traffic so we can close the rest of this lane. I love it.

6. Calm down pal, the speed limit is 45 in a work zone.

7. *Approximately 15 seconds later* Oh my GOD why are we moving so slow?

8. But really, should I just park my car??

9. I hope I have enough gas to sit in traffic for an hour.

10. My commute is supposed to be *15 minutes*

11. Yes, please, cut me off at the last possible minute before the lane closes.

12. Honestly whose bright idea *was* this to close down half the highway when everyone is driving to work?

13. This could have waited an hour.

14. Whoop, let’s hope that pothole didn’t take my tire with it!

15. If I see one more truck with blinking lights in the breakdown lane telling me to switch lanes I’m going to cry.

16. Traffic cones, traffic cones as far as the eye can see.

17. But really though, my car can’t handle these potholes.

18. Instead of sitting in the breakdown lane with your blinking lights can we fill these potholes please?

19. (But like, with real cement??)

20. This traffic jam is purgatory.

21. I’m paying for the sins of my past lives by sitting here, in this traffic jam.

22. I left twenty minutes ago and I’m still not halfway there.

23. *Internal screaming*

24. I guess I *don’t* have time to stop for a coffee before work.

25. Why don’t we do this work at night when no one is driving here?

26. Seriously, who decided that *the morning rush hour commute* was a smart time to block off THREE LANES.

27. Oh, cool, that exit is closed for construction.

28. Am I really going to have to break out my GPS again?

29. Yep, I’m really going to have to break out my GPS again.

30. I hope I’ll still have a job by the time I get through this commute.

31. Maybe I’ll luck out and this will all be cleared for the drive home!

Spoiler alert, it never is.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
