Dont You Just Hate Rush Hour Traffic

Hate It Hate It Hate It!!!

This has to be the most annoying part of driving in the world, I mean when you have to go to work or you have a medical appointment and you get stuck in a traffic jam behind 3 million others who have no right to be there blocking you...

It seriously gets on our nerves, so for the first time ever and possibly the last I have brought you a rant with a difference, instead of reading it you can listen to me tell you it that way it will be funnier, well I hope so.....

Please let me know if you enjoyed this as I may start to do this more often when I do more Dont You Just Hates :)

Happy Listening

Well, Cal I'm enjoying your broadcasts here but I have to tell you my experiences with driving as well. I have to drive a round trip total of fifty four miles to get into town where I shop for groceries and see my doctor. It's a University town. The population in the Summer is about 40 thousand, however when the students come back in the Fall it rises to 65 or 70 thousand. They travel in herds, of course, and they all have an iPad or iPod or cell stuck to the side of their heads and are deeply engrossed in some sort of texting, watching a video or gaming.

On the way into town we have herds of deer. They have none of these contraptions and are simply trying to get from one cornfield to another and actually display more caution than the students. Students have parents who pay their way ... to school, supply them with credit cards with no limits and they quite frankly know that without their dollars flowing into the community it would shrivel and die. The attitude is apparent when they cross, en mass, in front of your vehicle which you have managed to stop just shy of knocking them down like bowling pins. The rubber on your tires is smoking, the squeal of your brakes should be enough to warrant at least one of them looking in your direction, one would think, yet they travel along oblivious to the fact they are trusting that this old woman will always decide to brake.

They only way I've been able to come to terms with this is to pretend that they are darling little kiddies on their way to kindergarten ... who would want to slaughter a pack of innocent children. So, to date at least, I have been able to resist at least bumping a few, just to see if they all fall over like dominoes. Ah, such is life when you venture out of your cave, I guess.

Very clever hub! I wonder how many hours we have all spent in anger as we crawl through traffic? Oh wait, maybe I don't want to know that, after all. Voted up and interesting!

I don't care any more!

Before I was retired I would go to work in the bus (or latterly taxi!) and curse all the cars (vermin in cities) and even passengers trying to get on the bus as I was ALWAYS running late - not good first thing in the morning!

Now that I'm retired I can sit back and look out of my (triple glazed for the noise) windows to the main road below. It is often backed up both ways with cars containing ONLY 1 PERSON. Where are they all going? 30 years ago there were a few cars going up and down the road but now!!?

A shock will come when all the petroleum runs out!

You are not alone, calpol25, i guess everyone in this world hates traffic one the roads ( i have to be very specific because I always love traffic on my site LOL).

If you are driving here in Manila. You'll definitely lose your patience. I live far away from my day job and everyday is hell. the main city thoroughfare is always congested starting 7am onward and it suck! thank goodness, i guess me working graveyard has a positive note.

BTW, i enjoyed your hub. This is so High-larious! Voted up and awesome. :)

BTW - love the pic of the Opera Garnier and the Avenue de l'Opera!

You know it's strange - the Parisian traffic is mad but doesn't feel as threatening as that in the UK or US.

Thanks Ian

I know what you mean I suppose over here traffic rules are merely a suggestion to some people x

In Paris no-one obeys the rules - maybe that's why it works!
