Just another day late to work

Go figure. I see a long line waiting for the red light. Can’t see around the huge monstrosity of a gas guzzler vehicle in front of me, I am far left. Some guy wants in from the middle lane. He of course is in a massive vehicle that has a super slow take off.
Traffic in my lane starts cruising. I get up and see there was an accident, tow trucks and police everywhere. My lane is wide open. Officer steps in my way and tells me to stop.
I am the first to have to wait until the pick up truck, wedged between two polls is pulled out. Sad thing is. He was pushed into there by another vehicle that is already on a flatbed tow truck.
I was running early. Turned out. I was ten minutes late.
