Since I live in Bangalore, I spend enough time waiting at traffic lights to complete the TOI SuDoku on the way to work. If I finish it before getting to office I have a book in the glovebox

Have my breakfast (in the morning, i.e.,), make my calls, blackberry (emails/sms, etc); change music and wait for the light to turn green.

And maybe look out for rogue BPO drivers to avoid.

Thumbs up

Well me...

1] I mostly admire all those Accord VTECs around me and Octiz. and every time I explore a brand new reason to own one of these one day...

2] Then I see around and curse all those people who manage to drive in an extremely dirty car with lots of scratches all over. I wonder how they manage to get scratches even over the top of the roof outside.

3] I mostly am the relaxed one , so try and even save some battery by putting the car in the parking lights mode at nights.

4] also laugh away at the stupidity of all those drivers who continously honk their horns like D********s to get the way..

5] try and read number plates of all cars around and try and judge their likings for different FONT styles..

6] also try to find the similarity in the numbers of all cars seen that day..
I wonder why I always find the Ikons only with the numbers DL3C M XXXX

I'm a voyeur. I love looking at people in other cars, and I try and guess what they do and how the various occupants of a car are related.
