    I'm starting a new job in two weeks, and the commute from my home is about 50 miles -- approximately 65 minutes one way in actual driving time.

    Just wanted to see what types of commutes people have.

    11 minutes. Used to be 5. I moved out of town. :D

    10 minutes...eight if no cops are on the parkway from my house to the city my paper is in.

    25 miles, about 45 minutes in traffic.

    Took me an hour and a half in the rain last week. Didn't enjoy that.

    A folo:

    Do you guys/girls like a little bit of a longer commute to calm down a little bit before you get home from the stress of the daily deadline?
  6. About 20-25 minutes to go about 15 miles.

    And driving in Texas doesn't cure stress. It causes it.

    I'd say 5 minutes on a bad day. In terms of distance, I live about 1.5 miles from the office.

    Then again, I'm only in the office about once a week.

    I did when I lived 30 minutes away from work. And even then it'd be an hour or two before I was in bed and asleep.

    I have got the worst road rage in history. Someone in front of me could be doing 18 over the speed limit and I'll be bitching it's not 20.

    Driving does not, in any way, relax me.

    That is just SO hard to believe.

    My commute is 20 minutes in good traffic, BTW. Nearly all freeway.

    An 8 minute drive & a 10 minute process of parking in the employee garage, riding the shuttle & walking to the office.

    Two months ago, I had a 45 minute drive. This is much better.

    Doc and I both used to have 30 minute commutes. We hated it. Now his is about five minutes and mine is about 10, except they shut down one of the main roadways into downtown and detoured them onto our route, so if I go in right at 8, it takes about 30 minutes. Fucking road shut down for a year.
