Wherever you go, you are stuck, wherever you try to escape to, you still find yourself stuck. You are “always” stuck in traffic. This happens especially when you are living in metropolitan cities like Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai or Mumbai. Ever thought about what you are going to do when you find yourself stuck in the middle of colossal traffic.
You probably think, ‘dude, is there some way out?’ The answer is YES! Think of it as time away from the stresses of the outside world, your heated and/or air-conditioned sanctuary.
Here is the list of things that you can do, while soaking yourself in sweat, inhaling noxious gases or having a fight with your fellow traffickers in the middle of the road.
#1: Invite your old friends to suffer
Get out your phone and call your school or college friends; those friends whom you have not been in touch in a long while and get caught up. This is probably the one things you can do invite your friend over the incident and spend some time in a fancy place nearby. It will not only help in passing time but also serve as a rejuvenating experience for both.
#2: Talk to your fellow trafficker
Talk to your fellow traffickers instead of fighting with each other. You can make some lovely bonding over how awful the combination of bumper-to-bumper traffic is with the summer heat. Better to be friendly than arrogant fellow.
#3: Use social media to distract your mind
A perfect moment for snapper, Instagrammer and social media worshiper. If you are a selfie addict, you still have your phone in your hand, take some selfies, post them on social media and enjoy the likes and comments.
#4: Feed your empty stomach
Are you feeling hungry?
Then you should order food or go to the nearby restaurant to feed yourself with some delicious food. No wonders, many fast food outlets deliver food in those chaos situations.
#5: Call your mother
What better time to do something that you don’t want to do than when you are stuck in a place that you don’t want to be, right? Calling your mother will not only soothes your mind but also make her happy. Remember, parents are there for you all the time, but we are not. Irony!
#6: Gross personal hygiene kinds of stuff
You are alone, right?
Some things just need personal space and impossible to do with other people around. Whether it is clipping your fingernails, tipping your ears, or tending to whatever gross things your body produces, no one wants to see that. The perfect time to tend to those sticky hygiene issues is while your car is sitting in traffic. You never know, this might turn out leisure past time every time you are stuck in traffic. Do not forget to clean your car afterwards.
#7: Get your artistic talent out of the closet
Take out a piece of paper or even your phone and write your thoughts, a story, a letter for your loved ones, or even your will; with the way people drive, you never know if you are coming back. This will enhance your writing skills, especially for writers those who are sitting out there reading this post. We personally recommend.
Are you feeling exhausted?
You are definitely very angry now for being stuck in traffic for hours, so the best thing to relax is to meditate and find your centre. You can always find something to do in your free time, and there is no better free time than being stuck in traffic. Drive safely and enjoy.
#9: Hook up
Alert! Censored content ahead, viewer’s discretions advised.
If you are lucky enough to have someone by your side whom you are attracted to, this will be the best option. We do not recommend hook up in the car, doing that in public places are against the law, mostly.
#10: Take a power nap
Do we even have to mention that? If you cannot find any of the above suggestion working out for you then, here you go.
Hope you enjoy getting stuck in traffic next time.
