So this happened on my way home from work...

So on the highway home there is major conjestion, because it goes from 4 lanes to 3, and then about 300 feet later, 3 lanes to 2. Makes for very slow merging and congestion at rush hour. However, there are many exits along the route, so maybe 5 miles after this clusterfuck, the highway is basically empty because everyone gets off at exits.

The general consensus amongst people on my route is if you are in the right hand lane, you go until the merge, go one after the other in a zipper-like fashion, and repeat for the second merge.

Now here are the players. Me, in my Accord, a guy in front of me in an acura, and two guys to our left, who we zipper in with, a Taurs and a civic.

As we start zippering, this douchebag lifted F250 driver decides “fuck the system” and roars up to us while in the right hand breakdown lane. Everyone sees this asshole try and muscle over on me, almost shoving me into the Taurus.

I’ve seen this with big rigs, with the cb radios, box in assholes…. but I have never been a part of a small to mid-size sedan box lol.

Now, with the acura in front of him, the taurus beside the acura, me behind the f250, and the civic beside me, we proceed to make the next 45 minutes a hell for this man, not allowing him to bully anyone else. The highway is about 30 miles long, and we forced that douche to do 15 under the speed limit for about 20 of that :)

Maybe not totally petty revenge, but I wanted to share my experience of being an honorary big rig driver in my tiny honda.

Normal Horoscope:

Aries: There is beauty in the simple. 

Taurus: My way or the highway has been responsible for some of the worst traffic in history.

Gemini: I asked the stars for your fortune but they all made a noise like a giant bell tolling. 

Cancer: Before you ask the question, do you really want to know the answer?

Leo: Every time you start from scratch the work gets a little cleaner.

Virgo: Be careful what you do at night. Dreams can be like chum in the water for all sort of unsavory sorts.

Libra: The whippings will continue until you are more compassionate and other such nonsense.

Scorpio: Sometimes how something feels is more important than what it does.

Ophiuchus: There is wisdom in the smog if you know how to look.

Sagittarius: Take what peace you have.

Capricorn: Common minds talk about people, great minds talk about ideas. What insufferable prick thought that up?

Aquarius: You may still have an old stuffed animal tucked neatly away in a drawer somewhere. Comfort comes from strange places.

Pisces: A hole made is a hole in need of something better.

aries and aquarius: my way or the highway

aries and aquarius both reject social norms and have their own strong convictions that they believe everyone should agree with. however, aries’ motivation is more selfish than aquarius. aquarius rejects things that don’t align with their ideology. they think about what’s right for humanity as a whole, not just what’s right for themselves.

aries and aquarius are both rebellious and are passionate about certain issues. aries definitely responds in a more militant way than aquarius. aries is an emotional sign, and highly reactive. aquarius prefers to keep a cool head and rebels more subtly.

aries: i want to be myself.
aquarius: i want to be different.

aries: it’s right for me, so i believe in it.
aquarius: its right for society, so i believe in it.

aries: emotional, direct
aquarius: logical, indirect

aquarius craves novelty, and aries hates to be bored. they can definitely entertain each other, and can make a dynamic duo so long as their personal convictions don’t clash too much. :-)
you dont have to prove your waterbowl is clean by drinking from it

The troll facebook group of all ball pythons owners, NITITA, is going around telling people you cant prove your waterbowls are clean unless you drink from them.

First of all, you dont have to justify anything to those psychos. they believe that racks are the only option for keeping and instead of treating people kindly, they gang up on people who disagree with their keeping style and attempt to humiliate them and in some cases threaten bodily injury if you don’t buy into their “my way or the highway” ideals.

Secondly… nope that’s about it. Just avoid them. They think they are macho and respected by all but theyre a running joke. Really, they are the epitome of what is wrong with reptile keeping.

He Tells Everyone You’re His - One Shot

In which Simon tells his mum whilst recording a video that he has a girlfriend, you, and she loves you already even though she hasn’t even met you yet.

Requested? Yes


Simon’s Point of View

I was on the highway on my way to my parents’ house. My dad wasn’t in, instead he was in the US, doing stuff for his job. My mum was always welcome, though, so I decided to head there in the afternoon.

She’s not expecting anything; probably just the usual, which was me talking about how much I love YouTube and any video ideas I have in mind, and telling her about things me and the other boys did since the last time I saw her. Little does she know that I have some very important news I know she’ll be delighted to hear.

I parked my black rover right outside the door to my parents’ house and rang the doorbell. I could hear the shuffling of socks on the tiled floor before I was greeted by my mum’s familiar smile.

‘Simon!’ She cheered and stood on her toes to engulf me in a hug. I smiled and bathed in her smell. I instantly felt ten years younger, seeing as this is the house I grew up in, the house I lived in when I went to Middle School and High School. But I had to remind myself that I’m 24 now, and that I’ve changed. And that things have changed for this family. 'Come on in,’ She opened the door completely, letting me walk inside and then shut it behind me.

I took off my thick Autumn coat and hung it up on the wall behind the door like I did when I used to come home from school. The nostalgia was filling my mind and taking over all my thoughts, so I didn’t realise my mum had ask me something.

'Sorry?’ I told her, raising my eyebrows. I has subconsciously followed her into the living room, where she stood in front of the coffee table.

'I asked if you’d like some tea or coffee.’ She giggled up at me.

'Oh,’ I smiled awkwardly, and I could feel my cheeks heat up. 'Tea sounds good,’ I told her and sat down on the sofa. I pulled my phone out whilst she got to making the tea in the kitchen. 'Is something troubling you, Si? It’s not often you’re so in thought.’ She questioned.

'Are you calling me stupid?’ I laughed whilst scrolling through my Twitter feed aimlessly.

'What? No! Of course not!’ She laughed in return. It was silent for a short while, but the bubbling sound of boiling water made it a comfortable silence.

'Hey, mum, do you want to film a video with me? As in, right now?’ I asked without looking up.

'Oh, was I supposed to prepare something for this?’ She asked.

'No, I just got an idea.’ I told her.

'Um, sure, what will it be?’ She asked. I could see her pouring the hot water into two mugs.

'I was thinking just a regular Q n’ A, except you get to ask me questions, too.’ This would be an easy way to tell her, since she’s sure to ask about my love life. She used to love joking about how it doesn’t exist.

'Alright,’

'I’ll just go get my camera and stuff from my car quickly,’ I said and ran out to the front of the house, grabbing a tripod, a camera, and a little microphone.


'Okay, this is a good one.’ I told her and smirked. 'When’s the last time you and dad kissed?’ I asked her. This was one of the last questions for the video.

'This morning, when he left to go the United States,’ She said confidently. I giggled and then looked up at the camera and cringed. I had just imagined my parents kissing.

'Your turn,’ I told her, but I knew what was coming. She hadn’t asked the question yet.

'How’s your love life?’ She laughed, assuming she already knew the answer.

'Funny you ask that,’ I said, pulling out my phone. I could see her eyes widen in shock. 'I have something I needed to tell you today, mum,’ I looked up at her again. 'I have a girlfriend.’ I stated, smiling so much that my cheeks began to heart.

'Really? Oh my goodness, Si, that’s amazing.’ She said in a high-pitched voice and leaned in to squeeze me, causing me to hold my breath.

'Guys, I’m dying,’ I said to the camera, sounding as if I was going to be choked to death.

'Do you have a picture of her? Oh my days, what’s her name?’ She asked, seeming to be really excited now. My fingers were trembling slightly as I unlocked my phone. Not because I was nervous about telling my mum, but because I was uploading this to the internet a couple hours later.

'Yeah, I do, and her name is Y/N.’ I said, smiling as I looked through my camera roll quickly. It wasn’t hard to find a picture of her because my camera roll was filled with pictures of us cuddling on the couch at the Sidemen House and pictures of her sitting across from me at a table at a café. I settled on a picture of her laughing at a crappy joke I made, whilst she was sitting opposite me at a fancy restaurant we went to together one night.

'Oh my days, she’s gorgeous.’ My mum gasped at the picture.

'If you swipe right, there’s more.’ I told her, handing her my phone. She continued smiling as she looked through all the pictures.

'Is she the only person you have pictures of on your phone?’ My mum asked and I nodded and smiled. 'Oh come here, my little big boy,’ She said and leaned in for another hug, completely embarrassing me in front of my viewers.
