Default Gridlock - Rush Hour - Parking - I HATE IT!!

I work right in the city and commuting to and from work is really a drag!!! If you drive in you deal with Gridlock and stupid people who dont know how to drive, and if you dont get to the parking lot early enough, you will be walking a mile before you exit the parking lot Now if you commute by public transit, its always packed and your on their time schedule which has you running for trains and buses. I just hate it either way, but thank god I have my Bonne, because it makes driving in more bearable!! Whats your commute like?

That'* why I'm usually out of the house by 6AM. Minimal traffic, and I beatr everyone to the parking.

If I get here, and it'* too early to punch in, I can drink coffe, surf, go grab a smoke, or even watch TV in the lounge. If there is stuff I need to do, potential overtime for punching in early.

I wake at 6am to shower, shave, etc. I leave around 6:45 and get to the lot around 7:40 which to me is early, but as you can see the lot is packed by that time. I got to work this morning at 8am which gives me an hour of BC time

I think thats why I hate commuting. because even though I leave the house early, the roads are still jammed as well as the parking lots

Working closer to home would be nice, but then the pay goes down significantly

I want an early retirement
