Jeff googled "irregular pain in the kidney area" to see what was up. WebMD told him that it could just be a muscle strain; this was Jeff's self diagnosis and he decided that was the problem and didn't go to the doctor. 8 months later Jeff found out he had terminal hip bone cancer and that he had only 2 years to live.
Elise had a slight pain in her neck after falling off her bed in the middle of the night and hitting herself. Being a chronic neurotic, she feared for the worst, googled it, just in case. She self diagnosed herself to have had throat cancer. She went to the doctor and found out it was a simple trapezius sprain.
That time period between 1PM and 4PM when you rush frantically to your destination before rush hour comes. Failing to do so means being stuck in crawling traffic and doubling, possibly tripling you commute time. People who partake in the pre-rush hour rush are called "pre-rush hour rushers" for obvious reasons.
Example 1: When the police officer asked me why I drove twice the speed limit, he didn't take so kindly to me citing the pre-rush hour rush as an excuse.
Example 2: Yedid cuts all of her last classes short to avoid rush hour because she has to get home on time for her long AIM sessions with men old enough to be her father.
Used to describe a traffic jam or traffic congestion due to road work, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This roadwork is often pointless and inefficient, but gets done anyway because the state has to fulfill a quota, otherwise it won't get equivalent funding during the next government handout cycle.
Now that exit 5 is being repaired, Joe's has to use exit 6 and go out of his way. Even though Joe's house is just three blocks past exit 5, using exit 5 would result in a 20 minute delay, thanks to the Stimulus Jam right below it.
The unexpected Stimulus Jam on I-95 resulted in crawling traffic and an extra hundreds of gallons to be burned.
