Welcome to a good day in traffic. What makes it good is that it’s not raining or snowing. Each raindrop adds a 15 min delay and each snowflake adds an hour in the D.M.V (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) area. On a good day what should be a 30-40 min commute is on a daily basis two hours each way.
I have been actively changing my outlook facing the daily traffic jams. First and foremost, by realizing this is a blessed issue . Having a job to go to that I enjoy is becoming a rare reality .
The best I hope for is to travel with a good cluster of drivers. Those who are not texting while driving. Those who allow a safe amount of space between cars. And the biggest joy is when the group I’m riding with are not rolling with entitlement.
An ENTITLED Driver ( E.D.’er) is by far the worse demon on the road. They are the ones riding your bumper too close, or flashing their lights for you to move from whichever lane they are in. E.D.’ers are the ones who do not merge responsibly, and they almost always will drive by everyone to cut in line getting on or off a ramp.
It’s almost 7:00 am. I’m on my way out the door to be at work by 9:00 am. I’m stepping out with a positive heart, good energy and a pound of patience. Energy is contagious so I know your commute will be an enlightened one as well.
