Pot Hole Conspiracy.
If you ever driven the roads in Michigan you have experienced the game called "Dodge the potholes". It's a challenge! Just when you think you can straddle one to avoid another, BAM! your wheel falls in the deep hole and jars all the teeth in your head let alone probably damaging the whatchamajigger on your vehicle. Some potholes stretch across the entire two lanes on the road making it impossible to avoid them unless you try to drive on the side of the road. This can also prove to be dangerous as the roads are so thin that there is no shoulder only sticky, gooey mud and you definitely don't want to get sucked into the ditch.
You are probably wondering why I think it's a pot hole conspiracy. Well, here are my reasons. First of all I think they allow these potholes to expand so that it gives the county workers something to keep them busy all day, every day hauling dump trucks
full of asphalt to fill one hole at a time . Second, the government can hire official pothole engineers to figure out how to redesign them because repaving seems to straight forward. Third of all, I think the car manufacturers are in on the conspiracy because after driving around on these roads the life expectancy of your vehicle has now been downgraded. Therefor you will be shopping more often for new vehicles.
I used to worry about the deer leaping in front of me on the way to and from work but at least the odds were slimmer of hitting a deer than hitting a pothole.
