My internship with Shell has been very interesting. I can tell that there is a lot for me to learn and I think the experience will be great. What I don’t enjoy are the insane commutes everyday. The weird thing is that every day the traffic is horrible in a different spot. Sometimes it is the 59 and Beltway 8 interchange, sometimes it’s the Belt and I-10, sometimes it is just in the middle of 59.
I’ve figured out why there’s traffic though, and the discovery is going to blow your mind. Hold on to your hats…
People are stupid
Yes, it’s just that simple. I have seen more idiotic driving techniques in the last 3 days than I have seen my entire life, and I’ve driven in Houston before. Driving in rush hour commutes is a whole different ball game.
Here’s a tip for anyone who lives in a major city with traffic problems, the markings on the road are there for a reason, the signs, surprisingly enough, are there for a reason. If you pay attention to them and try to adhere to them as much as possible things move a lot smoother.
