Utter fucking madness!
We have just experienced the pinnacle of utter modern madness! A road trip from the Dutch / German border to the UK over the weekend to celebrate a 50th birthday.
Insanity starts when one is scared stiff of going via Calais because of attacks from illegals attempting to enter the UK. I am not willing to allow my granddaughter to be exposed to such madness.
Then the madness grows when one observes a plethora of Eastern European trucks parked all over the countryside stretching from Germany to the French ports. Filthy, revolting toilets that one has to pay for in Belgium and France. Utter NUTS!
Arriving in Dover, we are forced to drive via the Dartford Tunnel, and the madness repeats itself in the form of over-filled motorways, jams, idiots attempting to dodge the jam, and all because punters demand 24/7 shopping in over-filled shopping centers along the route! Fucking shop till they drop, materialistic, credit-card dependent ignoramuses!
We arrive totally knackered after a trip that used to take 7 hours, now it takes nearly 12! Party until 03.00 Am, awesome party BTW, and then hoping, because it's Sunday, for a relaxed home trip, bullshit!! Jam after jam from Cambridge to Dartford again! Then escape, we arrive in Dover on time, thank the heavens and not Jesus on a holy Sunday!
Final utter insanity appears in the form of traffic jams throughout Belgium. A spot of warm weather in October drags the Belgians out in their tiny country, they head for the coast and then fight their way home in UTTER, UTTER jammed up madness!
Repeats of filthy, disgusting toilets; we have to pay for the pleasure again! Parking areas filled with stinking Eastern European trucks, who piss anywhere! Jam after jam and then relief as we hit the Dutch border on a Sunday evening, yes a SUNDAY, the day of rest for us all!
Never, ever again!! I prefer to go to church, at least they are empty!!
Have a nice weekend in your materialistic world; I give up!
PS: A true story BTW!
