Few days back I was talking to one of my colleagues about driving & traffic. Now let me tell you I enjoy driving very much even if there is a lot of traffic. Reason being nothing, I just love driving.
This colleague was in fact with me to some place we were going. He was on passenger seat and I was driving. Some nonsensical drivers, whom you can find in every city & street, crossed my path and I just let it go like that. This is the conversation we had:
My colleague: What the hell, and you are not irritated at all?
I said: No, what’s there to get irritated about? I know such drivers exist and they are reality. I’ve accepted it and I’m careful in my driving, I think that’s simple.
My colleague: Yeah we know such drivers do exist but you didn’t even mutter any cuss word or you didn’t frown or are not upset at all, that’s surprising!
I said: Yeah, maybe that’s surprising but that’s what I’m!
My colleague: But without using any cuss word there is no fun in driving!!
I said: Hahah, I think differently 🙂
So basically, I’ve heard this type of statement earlier also from other fellow drivers. But the whole point here is, I just don’t feel like cursing anyone even if they are at mistake. Yes, I do feel sad to see the jinxed traffic rules of our city, the blatant blindness to traffic signals by two-wheel riders but then I can’t do much about it, this is as much fact as it could be. So instead of boiling my blood everyday, I prefer enjoying my drive by ignoring and listening to beautiful songs. As it is by cursing someone is not going to change that someone in anywhich way, so why badmouth anyone?
While driving, music is my soul mate. I love music and I’ve at least 3-4 CDs of my fav collection always in the car to come handy! What else do I need? I almost take 15-20 mins one way to reach office on an average. I take it as my me time, to ponder, to remember things and to be happy listening to my fav music. I think this is the best time one can spend with self, no?
Moreover, to each his own. Your style is to badmouth and feel good my style is to ignore and feel good 🙂 Let’s not tell each other that your drive is not worth if you are not cursing someone!
