Back 2 Back Pool Time

Morning Rant

On Monday’s and Tuesday’s in my residential neighborhood from 8am to 10am cars can only be parked on one side of the street or the other for street cleaning. Then on the same days four blocks away at work in a nonresidential neighborhood the street cleaning is from 10am to 12pm.  Now wouldn’t it make more sense to flip those times so people still at home at 8am don’t have to rush out to move the car or leave for work early.  And that way when people have an appointment in one of the buildings on this block they wouldn’t be scrambling to find parking on only one side of the street.  I’m sure it’s the same way in many Los Angeles neighborhoods.

That also goes along with my theory that retired and unemployed people should stay at home between the hours of 8am and 10am and then again from 5pm to 7pm.  Clearing the roads for people commuting to and from work.  That way when the post office opens at 8:30 and I’m sending my nieces and nephews holiday packages I’m not in line with twenty 80 year olds buying stamps.  Also that would clear my street from those Adult Day Care buses blocking traffic while picking up the retired folks up.  Ideally only working people would also be the only ones allowed on the roads and at shops from 12 to 2pm during lunch breaks. 

When I hear old people complain at lines in the morning I always wonder why are they in such a hurry.  Are they that much in a hurry to die?  I know that was mean but damn it!  Okay that is my rant for the morning.
