While watching my hometown college team play football last night, I realized exactly what I needed to do for my 5 Things That Drive Me Crazy list.
Out of Towners- It's not that I hate people from other states/countries. I just hate that they don't know where they are going and slow down traffic impossibly more.
Extra Cops- Because of all the traffic and the thousands and thousands of students who pile into our small town every year, cops are plentiful. DUI checkpoints are set up all the time, which is awesome because I'm completely against DUI, but when you are just trying to get home from work, being stopped at a check point sucks!
Expensive Booze- College students drink. A lot. Our bar and club owners are very aware of that fact. If you go downtown, you can easily spend $6 on a beer. If you go five minutes out of city limits, you can get a beer for $2.50. Only problem is...the bars and clubs downtown are so much better.
Noise- On game days, I can hear the stadium noises. Crowds cheering, occasional fireworks, the announcers on the loud speaker, the music. It's kinda cool, unless you are trying to sleep, then its just annoying.
Thankfully, beginning Saturday, Boyfriend and I will be living in a very quiet neighborhood, 20 miles away from the stadium. I bet I'll enjoy game days a lot more.
