‘Marr Gaye Yaar!’ Hilarious & Painful Things You’ll Relate To If You Travel Very Far For Work

by Shivani K

There was a time when one could commute to work by just walking or hopping onto a bicycle. Is this the case in the present time as well? Certainly not! Over the years, India has incredibly grown in an exponential manner. You can see many international company giants opening their offices in many cities of the country. Even in the investment sector, India is one of the top countries in the global market.

As much as the job opportunities in India have increased, so has the people and vehicular population as well. If your dad was taking just half an hour earlier to reach his workplace, he is probably taking at least three times more time now, isn’t it? People have agreed upon the fact that to gain professional success, it’s okay to travel to far off places and waste almost a quarter of their entire day (or even more) on just traveling. Traveling for hours to work can be both physically and mentally taxing. But we are helpless when it comes to this situation, isn’t it?

So, what could one possibly do in such situations? Maybe try to ignore the pain by looking at the situation in a funny angle? And if you don’t know how to go about doing that, here, have a look, we’re teaching you how to do it and feel at least a teeny-weeny better.

2. Traffic Is Stopping You From Achieving Your Goals

Traffic bro, I mean, Sir!
