Too many stopover

Postby Alexandoy » Fri May 05, 2017 11:31 am

There was a time when we traveled in a convoy with some of our relatives. I think there were 5 vehicles in all. The trip is to the nearby province that is 3 hours away. Would you believe that we had more than 5 stopover before reaching our destination? Aside from stopping for rhe rest room, there's also the stops to buy products sold on the road not to mention the stopover for snacks. And so the 3-hour trip was negotiated in 5 hours.

Nothing irritates me more than unnecessary stopovers that delay my journey. It is very common for some people to want to have snacks after every few hours or just coffee/tea breaks.

I don't mind bathroom breaks as that can't be stopped however, it is quite irritating that people always want to slow down the drive and then reach the destination way out of planned schedule.

The same happens to me when I am traveling to my hometown with my family. My dad will be driving because it is a very long distance which usually takes 6 to 7 hours to reach the destination. Besides for restrooms and refreshing he often pulls over to buy snacks on the way and much more. I will be scolding my mother and my brother along the way who are the ultimate reasons behind these delays.

Unnecessary stopovers are so bad and irritating :x ... Especially those that are for futile reasons. I just can't stand them... I can't! Oh, my... :shock:

Without any doubt, they're one of the things that annoys me the most when I have to do some long travel with a group (because when I travel alone this never happens... I only stop even when I really need it).
