Read on to know what you can do to pass those frustrating minutes:
1. Rickshaws: Providers of Wisdom
Rickshaw drivers have taken it upon themselves to endow us with deep quotations and words of wisdom bound to help us as long as we live. The best way to pass the time when stuck in traffic is to read these. Trust me; it’s a great way to make it out of the traffic jam alive.
2. Stare Back at Those Staring At You
It is going to be extremely hard to shield yourself from the ogling of men. Right, left, center, everywhere. They’ll stare right into your soul. And most of the time would pass by cursing them or fixing your dupatta.
3. Sing Along To the Radio
Why? Because you can, and also because you have nothing better to do. All hail to RJ-Free Josh FM 99 for providing us with nonstop streaming that helps us keep the spirits up during long traffic jams.
4. Curse the traffic, and the people honking
Who you honkin’ at bro? All of us? Relax, we aren’t going anywhere and your honking wouldn’t make the traffic move faster. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, OMG STOP PLEASE DON’T HONK, YOU’RE IRRITATING AF!
5. Re-apply your Makeup
All of it would’ve been ruined anyways by the time you reach your destination. And you just have to do something in your time stuck in the traffic. Why not perfect the red pout?
6. Criticize Those Ridiculous Shop Names
Why would they name a tire repair shop “Munni ki repair shop” Who is Munni and why does she own a repair shop? With Karachiite’s penchant to be creative on the streets, you will have plenty of mind boggling advertisements to comment on.
7. Snapchat and Instagram to the rescue
After all, that is what these applications were made for. #stupidtraffic #whyarentwemoving #immadie #SAVEMEEE #noonecares #gotohell #brbcrying

9. Make it up to your Girlfriend/Boyfriend
You know how your partner is always after you because you never give them enough time. Well. Now you have all the time in the world. Record sweet, romantic voice messages and send them to your other half. They don’t have to know that you had nothing better to do. *wink wink*
