Which do you prefer? City life or country living?
I'm easy on this one. I love both. I'm a chameleon. In fact, just call me Leonard Zelig.
But I can tell you one thing about country people in this town.
They have no idea how to use a roundabout.
We moved to this town from Sydney. And when we moved here there wasn't even a set of traffic lights in town. But we did finally get a set. And things seemed to go smoothly. Actually, I think they arrived in town at about the same time as Mc Donalds.
But then they put in a roundabout.
And approaching it drives me INSANE!! Talk about road rage.
You have to keep in mind that some people who live in in this town have never been out of this town.
I have awesome roundabout skills. I overtake people on roundabouts. But most people here approach the roundabout with a lot of stopping and starting and the flow thats supposed to come with a roundabout just doesn't seem to happen.
Disappointing because I love it when traffic flows like it should.
I must use as an example my friend Jem. (Because she's away this weekend and won't read this). Once we were going around a roundabout and I said
you have to put your blinker on when you do that
no, you don't, you don't have to use your blinker when its a small roundabout
I rest my case.
