For their special anniversary celebration, Mark had bought the tickets to Maggie’s favorite musical show in London. After having a nice dinner in their favorite restaurant they headed out and gave the directions to the cab driver for the music hall. Their journey should not have taken them long, but there was so much traffic congestion that it took them almost an hour to get to the theater. As they were getting to their destination, the cabbie was grumbling and talking under his breath. When they had paid off the cab, Maggie asked, “what was the cab driver grumbling about” Mark told her that he said that he was fed up of the London traffic and wanted to shift his business to a smaller city. “How could anyone be tired of London” Asked Maggie, surprised!
“That’s what driving every day in a big city will do to you” said Mark.
