in Amarillo, there is no “traffic”. when i lived there, it was a welcome relief from the
idiots people who live in South Carolina, who don’t know what a red light, a turn signal, or a speed limit are. when i moved back to Austin 6 years ago, i was reminded what “traffic” is. and according to a study done recently, Austin has ranked within the top 5 worst cities for traffic.
that being said, when i let people know that i was going to work at a store in Austin, everyone was concerned about my drive.
“are you moving?”
“isnt that far from your house?”
“what about the traffic?”
“wont that take forever to get there?”
and i realized 6 years ago, when i was back in “traffic” that i was in traffic at HOME. not in south carolina. not in amarillo. home. and i decided that i was thankful for being home and that was what mattered most.
so the moral of the story is this:
i’d rather be stuck in crappy traffic in Austin, than stuck in a shitty marriage in Amarillo.
