SoCS: Traffic Rant

Gonna talk about traffic, again. On Friday I had to go to the gym in the evening, for my yoga class. Since I was working from home, I decided to start an hour before the class so as to beat the traffic that can be caused by the sudden downpour of the rain in the evening. I had to take a route which has narrow roads (my usual route to my work place). When I reach there I see that it is practically deadlocked from all sides and the traffic isn’t moving an inch. I was in the same place for more than an hour. Why? Because on a road which is already very narrow and where you are supposed to follow a single lane on both sides, all these morons and dumb heads who do not have a lick of both common sense and traffic sense, decided that the incoming traffic is more important and they formed three columns and left a very small place for my route. And one big vehicle got stranded and not to mention all the cross roads from where the vehicles came and blocked the way too. I had to practice my yogic breathing inside the car so as to not run over the two wheeler’s and cars who had occupied 3/4th of my lane . Seriously I so wished that there were a rule so that they be decapitated, (there I got to use that word too 😉 )

Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: use a word, anywhere in your post, that begins with the prefix “de-.” Extra points if your word ends with “ed”! It’s all about the fun – have some!

    In Hong Long, our transportation system is pretty good so there’s normally no traffic jam. However, if there’s an accident, then shit will get real. I always say that HK traffic has some sort of a status quo haha

      I am afraid I can’t a single good thing about the traffic here. If there is an accident then it gets worse. I always pray for those in the ambulance, especially.

        When I was in the Philippines, that’s also the case. Yeah, I really felt very bad for those people in the ambulance.

    It sounds like you really need your Yoga breathing there 😀

      😆 Yup, at least for the sake of my own sanity.
