DP Daily Prompts: Image Search
Image search: Pick a random word and do Google Image search on it.Check out the eleventh picture it brings up. Write about whatever that image brings to mind.
My random word is snarl-up. The eleventh picture was a traffic jam.
While looking at it I remembered the traffic jam in Dhaka, I was going back home in my brother’s car, all around us were impatient drivers blowing their horns, some trying to go in front of the vehicle that was ahead of them.
It was a very warm day , I could smell the gasoline, the smell of trash, food, pedestrians crossing the road, there were cattle moving along the road, it was simply chaos. I was praying that there is no accident which would further delay us.
After about forty minutes the vehicles were crawling and we knew this might be another day of frustration for us.
To make matters worse the bus drivers were screaming at the top of their lungs to let them go ahead, they didn’t care there was bumper to bumper traffic they needed to be patient.
When we finally reached our destination after two hours, I told myself I’m not going out shopping, this is it!
We are daily victims of traffic nightmares 😦 and the worst part is the ones who behave themselves get bullied by the others. So frustrating.
Sometimes it feels to be nice is a disadvantage.I like what you said, “you are bullied if you behave”.
Thank you for sharing this about the interesting word, snarl-up. I always keep a book in my car for just those occasions :-).
All good wishes,
