Stuck in traffic

And here is a second nice turn of phrase I heard from Ajahn Amaro at Amaravati to go with the one I posted earlier today. (Pre- occupied)

He spoke of people saying they were “stuck in traffic”. He asked “why don’t they say they are stuck in the middle of people, in the middle of good people?”

I thought what a good way of looking at driving that is. It takes away the impersonal we can all succumb to behind the wheel. Instead ‘stuck in the middle of good people’ might mean we could think about what the other person is thinking behind their wheel.
