Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

100 word fiction: The pile-up

100 word fiction: The pile-up


It had just been few minutes since the trailer had swerved to avoid hitting a car from the opposite side and then eventually become stuck due to the load. But the traffic pile-up had begun.

Being one of the main roads in the city, almost everyone had to take it every morning for work. And now with a trailer blocking the entire road, people were stuck in either direction.

Inside the trailer –

“We need to move to the side some way or another.”

“I have called the police for help.”

“I hope they get here before all hell breaks loose.”

Written for the photo prompt and you can read the other entries here.

Victory vs Defeat


  1. Anything could happen

  2. No doubt some angry motorists will have a few choice words to share with them!

      They had already begun. And that’s why it was a race against time to clear up.

  3. I hope everything remains peaceful. People are so volatile these days. Great story.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Oh they sure are. Hopefully for them, everything should remain peaceful. Touchwood!

  4. Yeesh, what a nightmare! good story!

  5. If they are inside my suggestion would be to brew up some coffee and snacks and start serving the pile up.

    As the jam grows so will the stories people will have to tell.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Oh yes, there’s already a lot of talk going on amongst the crowd.

  7. Sounds like it already has… broken loose, that is. Great story. Happens all too often with these wide loads.

  8. They should be nervous. Commuters can get quite hostile in their attempt to get to work.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Oh they definitely do. With each passing minute, things are slowly getting heated up.

  9. Looks like what could be called a predicament. Difficult to stay calm in it.

  10. Getting caught in such a snafu certainly gets on everyone’s last nerve, Good story 🙂

    • transitionofthoughts
