When you're friends become successful... and their gigs are too expensive to buy tickets for and they sell out... but you don't want to blag freebies, because you don't blag from mates, you support them...

Looks like I'm stayin' in tonight. The story of my life.

Hit the road at 6:30 with the aim of being in Newcastle around 7:45 to collect my car and get back over to Clonee for work . An accident on the M4 and another on the M50 caused chaos all around North Kildare. Traffic backed up for miles, all 'shortcuts' chock a block with people trying to avoid the main roads. Where are these flying cars we were promised?

That's awful. Traffic is a terrible thing to be in.

Also

a point of Gramer:

People driving cars are not late because they are in traffic.

People driving cars are late because they are traffic.

Example: Sorry, i'm late because I am traffic

Conversely: Sorry, I'm late because the bus is in traffic.

Glad we sorted that out, carry on everyone.

Using your analogy isn't the bus and driver also traffic?

On re-reading and applying more thought, it would seem yes- that its actually tricky to find a version where I am not traffic. In most versions, I am traffic. I just think like, if I was in a lift, I'm didn't bring the lift, I've certainly entered a lift and am now in it, but if i'm in traffic, its because I brought part of the traffic.
