1.5 hrs in bus!

That's how long I spent in Bangalore traffic today in the evening!
Bus left office at 7:15 and I reached home at 9!!!!

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!


I listened to bad Kannada songs to pass time!
There was an accident or something like that on one road and some sort of Rath yathra in another road!
I'm quite sure God hasn't told us to make sure everyone is inconvenienced while we try to do poojas for Him! He would be flipping out too if He was made to travel like how I did today!!!

OK, good night.

This is such a non-post, if you ask me!
Just a rant about Bangalore's traffic situation... *sigh*

This is the primary reason why I hate staying back. I prefer managing my time and skipping tea also, if required to make sure work gets completed on time. But, some meetings are like bad relatives, you can't avoid them. you just have to put up with them.

I used to love traffic in college with friends because no one was in a hurry to reach home. Now it is irritating. :)

Sho Shweet, your "non-post" :-)
Poor girl, but if you realise, everyone here in Chennai spends the same amount of time on commute to work every single day! Poor souls.

Sitting in traffic makes me crazy, but I deal with it better on the bus or train than I do when I have to drive. At least if I am not driving I can read and distract myself.

Sheesh! I hate being caught in traffic. Unfortunately, there's no escaping traffic in India :(

That s the major thing I hate about Bangalore. The traffic just drives me nuts. That s the reason I shifted to a place nearby to office. Now I'm home in less than 30 mins :)

It must have been horrible! 1.5 hrs in the bus!

Reminds me of all the times I had been stuck in traffic in blore.. Especially before that little road leading from the Marathahalli junction to Whitefield was widened. It used to be a regular occurrance.. 2 hrs + in the traffic!
