Due to the job not giving me hours I had to take on a shift on the day....but that was okay, I was going to the show. The missus had to judge a goat show at the Boonah Show, but that was okay, we are going to the show. We never get to go out just coz we can't afford the extra expense but this was something special to both of us. Seriously.
I get home from work at about five. Long fucking day, but I felt great, because I was going to the show. The missus got home from her show and I was SURPRISED she was keen as mustard to go. We were stoked.
We jump in the car at 630 and we're off. I FKN forgot to grab the address of the theatre to punch in to the GPS and after much fuck knuckling around rang a mate and he googled it for me. Problem solved. Just at that moment I notice a sign on the Warrego RIGHT at the last exit before the FUCKEN PILE OF SHIT Ipswich Motorway - or carpark, as it's been referred to. I said to the missus, "Alternate Brisbane route???"...which was what was on the sign. Sure enough, we get round the corner of no return and here's a sign that says, "Ipswich Motorway Closed. Find Alternate Route".
There is no alternate route at where we were at. There are no exits. You're stuck on it until Redbank. We got to that sign at around 650. We got to Redbank at 8pm. Redbank, normally, would 5 minutes from that sign. There was no way we were gonna make before 9:30. The show started at 8.
That show was a oncer, and we're devastated. I got home and found this online.
