Went to mow our property today, but couldn't get it done. As I crest the hill to turn into the drive there's a pickup stopped on the opposite side of the road, driver is out of the truck and it's hazards are on. It's a rough older Ram and dude looks sketchy. I decided to go down the road, park in a park and eat my lunch, then check to see if he's still there when I'm done eating.
Fifteen minutes later I return to find, not only is he still there, but he's now using a razor blade to scrape the clear coat off the truck. Mind you, the truck is in a travel lane. Not off to the side or anything. IN. THE. ROAD. Here's also doing that thing where really super high people do, he can't stop being jittery.
Call me a coward, but there was no way in hell I was going to put myself in the situation to deal with this guy. He's obviously not right and I just didn't have the strength today to put up the fight needed. I would have had been 12 feet from him mowing, no doubt he would asked me for a ride, money, tools, something. I just couldn't.
This incident had me really thinking, do I want to stay in this area with such a drug problem? Where can you get away from it? Does such a place even exist? I can tell you it's not Fredericksburg, Virginia, where I stayed the last few nights. They were literally hanging out in the bushes there.
Nah, typically the weridos like that are asking for money because they're homeless around here. the farther west you go... I would have to guess the meth/coke/whatever folks start to ramp up. It's a byproduct of rural regions, is it not? Nothing much happening, no real events to distract you... I don't know? Supposedly Appalaciaha it real bad with it mostly circling on old coal towns. But a lot old steel and industrial cities in the midwest struggle with the same problem.
Well... not to be a downer or anything, but if it sucks so much, is it likely going to make for any lasting effect? Or is that experience maybe even likely to escalate the yoyo-effect after you finish your diet ("finally!")?first day back on my diet and it sucks so fucking much holy shit
