Miss Information is annoyed by urban wildlife #2

This time the two legged variety is getting in her way.

Miss Information came home this evening and pulled into her driveway only to find a number of little pesky critters hanging around her backyard. These were apparently invited guests of the next door neighbours. They very kindly decorated her driveway with chalk pictures.

Miss Information hates to seem cranky but if she wanted chalk drawings on her driveway, she would do them herself. She doesn't--this is why her driveway is usually an art-free zone.

The thing that really bugs her is that the little twerps refuse to get out of the way of cars. For example, her her driveway. She moved her car slowly towards her garage thinking the giant machine vs small person conflict might inspire the children to move. Nope. She waved at them to get out of the way. They stood staring blankly at her. What's worse, their parents didn't say anything at all. Finally the dimwits moved out of the direct path of her car. She got out of the car to open the garage door. It took like 5 seconds--by which time one of the children had moved back in front of the car.

And their parents? As she went into her house she overheard one of the mothers say that Miss Information should have slowed down. On the other hand, Miss Information thinks the parents should explain basic science to the little jerks...paying special attention to the part where big things crush small things.

Stupid urban wildlife.

If you are in your driveway how fast should you be going anyway? While I like to go about 25 mph the whole garage door thing slows me down.
Some people should get a license to have kids.
