After working in a job that regularly requires medium-term planning (several months) I now find myself exasperated by people who have no fucking concept of the idea. From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
“Why, while this freeway work is going on and people are taking alternate routes, is there construction which is simultaneously closing lanes or entire streets on Juneau, Highland, Wells, Wisconsin and Michigan?” asks Dave Kern, a Wauwatosa driver. “It honestly seems as though someone is going out of their way to screw things up for we west-siders.”
On the contrary, Brian Manthey says, the state Department of Transportation is going out of its way to avoid screwing things up for west-siders.
“We’re not just ripping them all down at once and shutting everything down at the same time,” Manthey said.
Yes, Dave Kern, everyone in Milwaukee is conspiring against you and your daily commute. The mayor, DA, and city aldermen all sat down and said, “Gentlemen we need a long term plan to replace every bridge in the city. How can we do that while pissing all over Dave Kern’s morning commute?.”
