Macabre hopes

Mordechai: Oh, shucks. There's so much traffic!

Me: I wonder what's causing it? Maybe an accident or construction...

Mordechai: I hope it's an accident.

Me: (duly shocked) Why?

Mordechai: Construction can continue for a lot of days.

I confess I think the same way. When I'm stuck in traffic on the highway I "root" for it to have been an accident so that we have the posibility of passing it soon, as opposed to just plain volume which could go on forever. It is sort of a callous viewpoint I guess, but of course I don't hope there were injuries, just a plain fender bender. And in any case my "hoping" doesn't change the reality.
