An Alternative to Road Roage

10 Jan

An alternative to road rage

There is nothing worse than taking your regular route home and all of a sudden traffic comes to a standstill. Is there an accident? New construction? Is there a lane that has been closed? All of these questions will be answered eventually, but what happens in the meantime is entirely other story.

Years ago when I used to travel on the 401, I was driving along near the 427  trying desperately to decide which way to choose, collector or express when all of a sudden I looked to the car beside me. There in the driver seat was a women with dark sunglasses, long perfect hair with an expression that resembled as if she was in the beach somewhere in Spain. She also happened to be smoking which may have helped keep her in a calm zone. I thought to myself, is smoking the solution to keeping me from road raging everyday on this crazy highway?

Luckily I avoided picking up a nasty habit and instead started listening to podcasts and audiobooks in the car. This has been my saving grace!

I’m currently listening to Jordan Peterson’s 12 rules of life which so far has proven to be informative and entertaining. Check it out!

For those of you who know this type of commuting story all too well, don’t hesitate to arm yourself with some funny and interesting podcasts this weekend!
