    Default How long is your work commute

    I’m starting a new job shortly it’s in a city about an hours drive. I’m figuring on 1hr 20 minute commute each way with traffic and lights etc. maybe less since we are still in partial lockdown and when I’ve been driving to and fro my current place there is very few cars on the road. I don’t know the avg amount of time people spend on the road. I know a lot of people are working from home now but in general I’m just curious

    There should be less traffic on the road for you with the virus.

    Normally it is 45 minutes for me, door to door.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Yes the past month and a half I have had the whole highway to myself at times

    I have experienced that as have people I know. It has never ended well. You could just move closer to work. It's a waste of fuel money and car wear and tear too.

    I don’t think that is an unreasonable travel time. If you can keep it around an hour that is quite doable. It’s the US we have cars as we need to drive everywhere.

    For a time it is okay, but after a while it grinds. 2 hours a day wasted on nothing is not good. At least on a bus you can get some work done, but a car is just music or radio, but so much more you coukd do with that time.

    I was doing it and was exhausted and thus determined to never do it again. Another friend said it had ruined his life. Another who did a 2 hour commute developed a panic disorder. It is work in and of itself, especially if your work is people.

    If you are fine with it cool, but surely better to just live close to work and save that time of your life that will not come back.

    On a phone, so poor spelling and syntax there. Almost like a Brock to phone job!

    Perfectly doable. Id spend half my waking hours on the road if it just meant I could slap each of you once every day.

    Well you could always ask your mother, although I suppose I have no proof that she actually exists.

    I wouldn't accept that test either.
