Not Run By Geniuses
Traffic was backed up on Smallman driving into work Wednesday morning, beyond 17th St. Must've been an accident, I thought, and resigned myself to being late for work so I could see what had traffic so fouled up. 'Cause nothing makes up for being late like seeing a guy get put into two ambulances to be carted away.
(Un)fortunately it was more mundane than that. One of the 16th St. Bridge underpasses was closed down so they dould work underneath the deck, and traffic had to do the wait-your-turn thing through the one remaining lane.
Now I realize the work had to be done, but anyone with a brain would've seen the smarts behind waiting until after rush hour ended.
