A Review Your Car Will Love
I'm not a talented enough writer to make a "straight review" entertaining. Besides, I suspect not everybody in Fresno could use information like what I think about Korn's latest album (pretty damn good by the way). But, every Fresnan does use intersections, right?
Recently, a major Fresno intersection got a face lift: SHAW AND WEST. Yes, it's a review of a renovated Fresno intersection it's weird, I know, just go with me on this one.
FROM SINGLE TO DOUBLE
Ohh yea, we have double the turn lanes now. That doubles the chances for me to see a hot girl in the car next to me, waiting to turn. Oh crap, she saw me staring, she's obviously not interested. Greaat, she's going into Taco Bell too - Awkwarrrrrrd.
THAT ONE GUY'S BENCH MOVED
You've seen the poor dude. He's the homeless man (I've always assumed he is anyway) that practically owns the benches next to the Chevron. He's got the huge feet, leaves trash everywhere, smokes like a diesel truck and he talks to you whether you (or he) knows it or not. His bench (otherwise known as a FAX bus stop) got moved down a couple hundred feet. I'd ask him what he thinks but I've always been a little scared of the guy I suck, I know.
Look at this, dedicated right-turn lanes - very nice. I hate it when you're coming up on an intersection without one, and you want to turn right but the guy in front of you is going straight, which means you're not moving till the light is green. You could have had an open lane to turn right on red with, had he only used the open lane to his left - but heee's an asshead.
THERE'S OTHER STUFF TOO
There are new medians with red-brick instead of 70's style concrete (I'm not that sure what 70's concrete means either). Every corner now has a nice new flower bed that will go unattended and die in a few weeks. I don't want to forget the corner sidewalk ramps and the big new silver traffic lights that have a light for every lane yea, I've got nothin' on that stuff.
Come back next time when I review more inane stuff, like Rick Bentley's goatee and January Tule Fog.
