    Re: How bad is your commute?

    My commute is bus from home to local train station, 20 minutes.
    Train to central London, 30 minutes (probably standing) on a crowded 'fast' train, 50 minutes if I want to get a seat and go on the stopping service.
    Wait for the bus in London, anything up to 25 minutes (although they run every 10 - 12 minutes according to the timetable).
    Almost gauranteed to have to stand on a hugely overcrowded bus for 15 - 20 minutes to get close to work.
    5 minute walk to the office.

    It's not fun but it's where the work is so it has to be done!

    How long have you been doing that commute.. Its close to what I'd be doing... Does it wear on you or do you get used to it and just accept that its what ya gotta do?

    Re: How bad is your commute?

    I've been doing this for the last five months, I was out of work for almost a year just beforehand and I swore that I wouldn't complain whatever travelling I had to do rather than being out of work but I do have to remember that sometimes!
    Previously I did it for around five years when I worked in London before, I wouldn't want to move any closer to London - I like where I live.

    It does wear occasionally but it also gives me time to listen to music, read books and newspapers or just snooze when conditions allow.
    All in all, you just adapt to it and remember that it could always be worse!

    Good luck.

    I drive 2 miles to work. I consider myself lucky. I can't handle traffic.

    Re: How bad is your commute?

    ~25 miles for me, it usually takes ~25 - 30 minutes on a normal day when I can drive as fast as I want. Today it took 40 minutes because of some guy who wouldn't go any faster than 40 in a 45 on rural 2 lane roads.

    Makes me wonder why I gave up my 5 mile commute with the fun curvy road, oh yeah, my boss was an idiot.

    I walk from my bed to the office.

    If I stop to go to the bathroom, or get something to eat quick. Maybe 5 minutes.

    Re: How bad is your commute?

    Every Thursday...45 minutes. 40 miles to a remote branch in a tiny town south of where I live. Fun little 2 lane road to drive.

    Logging trucks and elderly drivers are the traffic jam. Passing lanes are available in only 3-4 places along the way. If the timing is bad, and I can't pass, it can be an aggravating drive.
    If I knew where I was going, I might already be there. -- Cross Canadian Ragweed.

    I feel your pain. Or worse, this morning about to pull out to pass and look up at a cop running radar. Didn't get me though.
