Traffic jam


The german language has the perfect word for it – “stau” – pronounced “staaauuu”
everyone has their mission “in life” and it is not usual to count on waiting time
a life-wise elderly relative claimed once, many years ago
that one should never marry a person
before had tried to keep in a queue with he or her
for at least 3 hours on a german motorway an awful hot day of july
if you could handle it – then it became a lifelong relationship.

Trying to settle a problem with oratory is like attempting
to unsnarl a traffic jam by blowing horns” (unknown author)
