Street Talk

Let’s talk potholes. The biggest, scariest pothole that I have ever seen is in Wichita. It’s the one that is in the parking lot coming into the west side Best Buy. The last time I was back there, I saw that they had it patched up but I’ve seen them try to patch this thing up before. Next time I’m down there, I’m pretty sure that I’ll see it again, even bigger than before, with a small lake forming in the bottom. This is the cycle that I’ve seen this particular pothole go through over the years. Somebody realizes that it’s a hazard, decides to patch it up, the patch is withered away because of slight imperfections, and bam its bigger than ever. You can’t fight this thing… it’s a living organism, a monster. It won’t be silenced!

It’s surprising that the worst pothole that I have ever seen is in Wichita, considering the fact that Kansas generally has better roads than surrounding states… at least that is what I have come to believe.

Oklahoma roads: crap. Texas roads: crap. Missouri roads: crap crap crap. Of course, people in Kansas also pay the price for having these good roads?there’s construction on Kansas roads 24/7 and nobody likes going through construction. Traffic’s half the speed, the fines are double, and you get to drive single file down a 2 lane highway, jimmy-rigged from what used to be a 4 lane luxury cruise. Nothing to like about it. And if you’re lucky, you might even run into those portions of construction where opposing traffic shares the same lane, by taking turns–those are always a treat.
