If you are an introvert and generally afraid of the silence that creeps in while you are trying to hit a conversation – Please read on!!
A very empathetic way of striking a conversation with anyone is to talk about their daily commute to work.
If you listen the other person saying “Oh my god! its a hell.. these traffic jams!!” then the job is easily done.. This topic can certainly make you little more than an acquaintance in a day or two!!
Sadly the pain of traffic jams still persists…
Sometimes, there can be very “interesting” reasons for a jam on roads. To list a few :
1. Broken vehicles
2. Construction work on road
6. Out of order traffic signals..
8. VIP visits
Biggest of all, even a cow on road can cause jams!!
But we have some “not so interesting” reasons too!
1. At times people tend to drive slower than the expected speed even when the road is clear. This tends to build up traffic. And icing on the cake – these slow vehicles would run in the designated fast lane.. phew!
2. Another common thing is to occupy more than half of the portion of a two way road that sometimes I think that do they expect the vehicles from the other side to fly and pass???
3. If your were lucky that your car was hardly damaged in a minor accident, you wouldn’t leave that chance still to knock the other one down. Even if that’s on the middle of the road and in peak traffic hours!
4. Buses and their drivers are anyways owners of the road. They seem to have a right to stop way behind or ahead of the actual bus stand. Sometimes in the middle of the road too!
With grievance I say, they are just a few to elucidate. The list, however, is unending.
I think we all are eligible for the bravery award. Isn’t it daring to pull out your car to face the ugly, unmanageable and dangerous traffic every morning and evening?? We risk our lives everyday by being there on road and still not learn the sense of driving on road.
For all those who find themselves part of any point(s) mentioned above please read this . This is the least you can do to help yourselves and others on road.
Hope the sense prevails…
