Morning traffic

A Commuter’s Rant

ONE HOUR. From Oshawa to Pickering?? Seriously?!?

Do you ever have one of those mornings where you just want to crawl back into bed & pretend it’s still the weekend? Well thanks to 401 traffic, today is one of those days.

Ok, so we knew that moving from the Rouge Valley border to the furthest possible North East corner of Oshawa while the house is being built would add an annoying inconvenient half hour to our commute, but after 8 months its REALLY starting to take it’s toll.  Especially on days when that half hour becomes an hour because random pockets of bumper to bumper traffic seem to pop up out of nowhere for seemingly no reason.

Like LITERALLY NONE.  No rain, no accidents, no naked crazies streaking across the highway. Nothing. Just random stop & go…moving at 5 km per hour and then suddenly freeing up like someone in “The Adjustment Bureau” decided that for whatever reason, we are just not supposed to make it to work on time.

Seriously?! Why are there even still this many people on the road at this hour???

Sigh…ok. I’m done for today. Just needed to get that off my chest.  A few more months…just a few more months…maybe if I chant to myself I can will it into happening sooner.

Oh well.  Happy Monday.  Let’s hope the week picks up from here.
