Traffic Karma

with 26 comments

I have bad traffic karma.

(I also have bad ‘my bag is always the last bag to come out after a flight’ karma while we’r at it).
 
 
If there is a traffic jam, I have to be stuck in it. If there is a pile-up thanks to some car which has broken down ahead, yes yes I will be there in the middle of that pile-up, tearing my hair out and station-hopping hoping to find some good music playing and not some stupid RJ going on yadda yadda  nonstop (Btw why do they all sound so bright and chirpy, don’t you just feel like strangling them ever).
 
 
When it pours and the traffic (obviously) goes bonkers, I am caught up in the worst of it. My new record is 6 hours on the road. And everytime that I am suffering my bad traffic karma, my husband who has excellent traffic karma (and he refuses to pass some onto me to even things out) is either working from home that day or he is travelling. My trafic karma also extends to my train travels.
 
Yesterday, after I was stuck in Gurgaon for two hours and hadn’t even managed to reach the toll plaza, I took an U-turn home, picked up MIL, changed from my black-n-whites into some friendly tattered denims & old tee and the two of us took off for the salon where we spent a good 4 hours. You know what they say, when life gives you lemons you make lemonade 😛
 
What’s your traffic karma?

  2. Now that you mention it, my traffic karma is the traffic version of the common man: nothing to speak of 😛

    Flights on the other hand, always get delayed, always. Grrrrr

  7. oh gosh! I took 10 min to reach office that day 😀
    But I have fairly good traffic karma. As I often tell (tease) my colleagues…on good days it takes me 7 minutes to reach work, and 15 on bad 😛

  8. I'm superstitious about saying things aloud for fear that they may change. Nevertheless, I will say this: I have good traffic karma. I went to Bombay last March and did not encounter a single traffic jam! In Bombay, where there's always a traffic jam somewhere. Can you imagine how good my traffic karma is!

  11. Infact, this reminds me of the time I was supposed to pick up the Chief Guest for our MBA annual day or something. And I got stuck in traffic, and therefore, we did not have a Chief guest! Ofcourse I got a royal blast the next day!

  20. @ 'A'

    So you have bad 'airport baggage' karma :p

    As for not having any traffic karma, tht's a good thing me thinks – that means you'v never even noticed tht there are any jams and zip past – tht's good right?

  22. I used to miss my flights. Now im always JUST in time. Including trains. They always seem to delay their departure, just so that I can board. Traffic, I have a bike. I am one of the guys you swear at 😛 But I drive nicely, no?
