With your own vehicle you can try to find another way around a traffic jam, say screw it and drive to the nearest bar, or cobble together some roadside fix if your sh*t breaks.
Depends on whether there's a viable alternative or not. When I lived right in the Bay, there were 8 ways to any destination. Out here, there's just one main highway linking the Bay and my home and it's always stopped. The side roads take just as long as waiting it out. And I didn't realize how stressful it was until I took the train and felt so much more relaxed.

But seriously...a couch?!

PS...wtf happened to gas prices?! 4.80 this morning, up 60 cents since Saturday.
