Spending roughly 250 hours per year just to get to and from work! And my commute really isn't so bad, a half hour each way. This will not be missed.
My commute is 17 miles each way, five days a week. The traffic varies as do the lights so it's a minimum of a half hour but there are occasions when it can take an hour.
That's a ballpark of about 250 hours a year, roughly six work weeks extra each year. And then there is the expense, not even including the wear & tear on the vehicle, insurance, maintenance,... but just the gas is about $1000 annually. Yep, I will not miss this!
But then I looked at it from a 40 year career standpoint - maybe I shouldn't have done this, it's quite discouraging. Just the time aspect (250 hrs/year as an average for 40 years) 10,000 hours! A normal work year is ~2000 hours, that would be five extra "work" years spent commuting!!! That is crazy. I don't even want to think about the money...
I wish I could walk to work and back.
When I do retire, I will not miss my daily commute.
