Power Outage

The power was out here from about 2 a.m. until 9:30 a.m., so that was about 2 1/2 hours I didn’t have to work. ­čÖé I went for a drive this morning while the power was out (to see if there was any looting, of course), and all the stop lights in town were out, so the police had set up 2-way stop signs in the middle of each intersection. I was traveling south and came to one of the stop signs, and some jackass going west, who had the right-of-way, also stopped. He just stared at me like I had the right-of-way, and he was just waiting for me to go. So I just stared back at him for nearly a full minute before he finally went through the intersection. People are such idiots. Something similar happened at 2 other intersections. People just seem to lose all common sense when something just slightly out of the ordinary like this happens.
