Going to work is a routine thing with a route you take daily. Today my route was blocked and I had to take an alternate way. Granted I don’t live in a “major” American city but my city is big enough for traffic jams especially considering there is road construction going on through the heart of downtown. Add to that some accidents that backed things up even more. My course deviation caused me to be late. It happens and rolling with the punches is the rule, not the exception.
