Stuck in a Moment (and You Can't Get Out of It)

Well, imagine you're in a bus on the way home, no air conditioning (economy class), fairly occupied (nearly full), still halfway in the afternoon, and got traffic jam? Yes, it happened when some road repair project doing their thing in this crowded Friday afternoon, on a two-way, up and down interstate road. It took a full hour to get out of the jam with so much sweat and swear words from the bus passengers. What a way to spend a birthday! The next trip home, we faced a simultaneous impact (we called it "karambol") between a container truck, two Avanzas, one Panther, and a public transport, and also two big mahoni trees. It just took a while to drag the damned truck out of the street.
