waste of gas
The state park by my house had there big fireworks show tonight. We decided we'd go to the bridge next to it and watch the fireworks rather than spending $6 to park the car for like 15 minutes. The newspaper said the fireworks would start at 9:20 PM, and the bridge is about 10 minutes away from our house, so we left at about 9:10 PM figuring we'd waste no time. A friend of mine lives a couple miles from the bridge, so I was gonna stop and pick him up so he could get a better view (could see them from his house, but not that great). At exactly 9:20 we pulled into his driveway and had seen a few flashes so we figured the fireworks had just started. He was sitting in his driveway in his car so I pulled up next to him. He let his window down and said "What'* up?". I said "I thought you wanted to go see the fireworks". He said "They're already over". The park decided for some reason to start the fireworks at 9:00 PM. The bright flashes I'd seen was the last fireworks. My friend had sat in his driveway and watched them the whole time. The paper said 9:20, yet they started at 9. I'm kinda teed because I wasted the gas to drive out there. I wonder how many other people missed them?
