Things I see in traffic

On Tuesday night, I was leaving work and got stuck in traffic.  So you are thinking, traffic in California, of course.  No, this was 10pm…way to late for average traffic.  I was sitting in a parking lot of traffic on the freeway, only one mile from my exit and my house.  We were literally inching along at about 5 miles per hour.  So what is a girl to do? Well I looked up Sig Alert dot com (yes I’m a violator) on my iPhone to see what the issue was.  I saw that there was a large accident on the map, and that an ambulance was arriving.

Traffic in the OC

I was not too concerned about the traffic, because it was late and I was just going to go home and go to bed.  Ok, I might have been rushed because I still needed to write my Wordless Wednesday post.  But really I was not inconvenienced by the traffic.  I was in the #3 lane, which is the third lane to the right of the center divider for not technical folks.  This was a four lane freeway.  All of the sudden, I saw the passenger door open from a car, which was a about three cars ahead of me.  A young girl got out of the car and ran across the freeway to the side of it.  I then saw her run up the hill, which was covered with plants and trees.  I saw her pull down her pants and squad to go to the bathroom.  I was shaking my head, and saying a few words that are similar to, “What the heck”?  This area is not rural at all, it was the southbound 405 Freeway in Orange County.  EVERYONE could see what this girl was doing.  I then saw the car that she got out of, merge to the side of the road to wait for her.  When she was done, she ran down the hill and got into the car.  Like a minute later, the traffic broke, and the freeway began to flow again.

We were like one minute from the freeway exit. I’m not sure if the entire freeway wanted to see this girl go to the bathroom. Plus, this crazy RAN across the freeway, two lanes.  Sometimes, I just can’t make-up stories about the crazy things I see. Just another day in Orange County.

P.S. YES, I took the photo that night….

Twice I have pulled over on my way to Detroit to let DS pee. I have learned it is easier to be discreet in a 4 door car than a van. Open up both doors on one side & pee between them (: The last time we were in San Diego we got caught in traffic going to IL's house so they could 'freshen up'---we drove past the exit to the restaurant to go to their house so they could spray perfume, hairspray & change a shirt. All told it was 3 HOURS later that we were back at the restaurant (GOOD GRIEF!!!!) I was no longer hungry at that point. & the other time it was around 10 & everyone was saying it should only take about 1/2 hour & it took us 1.5hrs

We were stuck in traffic on the 5 heading up to Santa Clarita about a year ago and saw a woman pull over (she was driving) to the side of the road (SIDE OF THE ROAD) and squat down and pee. In front of everyone! Couldn't believe it. Didn't even duck behind a tree or anything. Crazy LA people.
