I’m gonna be late

My new motorcycle was ready for the initial servicing, so I decided to take the morning off, have it serviced, then go to work for the afternoon.

As I headed to work, I-78 unexpectedly closed and we were stuck. Apparently, 2 truck caught on fire. After 3 hours of waiting, I turned my bike around and got off at the previous exit. I got a few glaring stares as I navigated the parked cars.  I decided to take the remainder of the day off, since it was ~3:30 when I got home and work was another 20 minutes away.

Thanks to the kind woman who lived near I-78 who brought us some snacks and the woman who let me sit in her car during the thunderstorm.

    Well…I only had to tolerate a one hour stop on the freeway going home a few weeks ago…I applaud your stamina for sticking it out as long as you did! Be careful though! My stop was for a fatal accident between a car and a motorcycle.
