Survival of the Fittest!

Dealing with morning traffic has turned into a game of Russian Roulette!

I can't believe how congested our streets have become. It is getting worse day by day. I attributed last week's chaos to people's return from vacation and schools starting up again. But the last couple days have been horrendeous.

Sad thing is, it doesn't matter what time I leave home. If I leave 5 minutes before or after, it's just as bad. I take this short cut or that short cut, I'm still stuck playing the 'THIS IS MY LANE.. BACK OFF' game. And we all take it personally! I get annoyed when someone tries to cut in front of me. They get annoyed when I don't let them cut in front of me. And then, of course, you have your odd person on crack who's driving slower than he could walk!

I give up.. I honestly, give up. No science, no math, no luck, no nothing seems to help in solving this problem.

So, anyone know how much a helicopter costs these days?!

How about waking up a little bit earlier than usual? Does magic. I tried it.

anon: define 'a little bit'? cuz i've tried waking up 15 mins earlier.. and i cant stress how valuable those last 15 mins of sleep are! but i gave them up, without any added benefit. still the same traffic insanity. my brain will not allow me to give up more morning sleep time than that :/

I was speaking with my sister about the same thing!

With every year, every month & every day it becomes worse.

Don't you have trams? (tramway)
Metro? Undeground?

june: honey, traffic will follow u...! ;)

sever: no, bahrain's too small for that! :/ but apparently big enuf for the number of cars! i swear it seems like each person is driving 2 cars to work! that's the only way i can justify all this traffic! =)
