Things I Do To Keep Myself Entertained In Traffic

  • When there is a slow driver impeding my progress in the fast lane1, I wave my hand and say in my best Jedi voice, “This is not the lane you want to drive in.”2
  • Dance party in my car

That’s pretty much it.  Thankfully, I have *a lot* of dance music on my iPhone – I have it for running, but it’s also helpful to keep me cheery when I’m stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic because someone decided it was a good idea to do road construction during rush hour.

  1. why do people insist on driving slowly in the fast lane? I mean, what do they get out of it? Surely they must get something out of it, since they do it ALL. THE. TIME. []
  2. Note: this worked once, where the slow driver changed lanes exactly in time with my hand wave. Unfortunately, it has never worked since that time, despite me trying it again and again and again []
