I have worked second shift nearly all of my adult life. I don’t think I’ve ever worked a ‘real’ 9-to-5 job. Today was a good example I’ve made a wise choice. How do you commuters deal with the commute?
I had to be in New Haven this morning at 9:30. That meant traffic on Whitney Avenue in Hamden, traffic as I-91 approached I-95, then more traffic in Downtown New Haven¹.
I just don’t have the patience for this!
Is there a secret method for dealing?
I’m driving a 2012 Subaru Legacy at the moment (roomy, comfy, economical, GREAT sound system). It helps a lot, but even it isn’t enough to make riding close enough to see the back tattoos on the driver in front of you palatable!
Going in at 2:30 and home around midnight has spoiled me.
¹ – I parked in a lot for a little over two hours. $12! Really? It’s New Haven. I know how to manually open the gate for the parking lot at the old place, but I didn’t dare.
