It's a lot more fun to be stuck in traffic than to be hit by a bus. Because maybe if you had been five minutes earlier and beat the traffic you would have been hit by that bus (that didn't stop at the red light -mercifully no one was hit...because you were all stuck in traffic).
When I look back on my life I see a lot of this sort of thing.
You forgot your wallet at home, on the table, because you were cleaning out your purse. You are now standing in line at Starbucks. Your latté is currently being made when you discover your missing wallet. Instead of swearing like a trucker (not that you would do such a thing), you shrug your shoulders and say: "Oh, no. I've left my wallet at home. I'm so sorry! How sad is that! No latté."
Que, tall handsome stranger standing behind you in line: "I can get that for you miss."
Three years later: wedded bliss.
Pretend story. But you get the picture.
Whenever my life is annoying me, I try to remember this: I'm not stuck in traffic. I'm waiting for a tall hot stranger to buy me a mocha.
