    Default How Far Do You Drive to Work?

    Maybe its the teacher in me, but the responses (as of 11:17 central time on Tuesday) to this question in the survey about ourselves jumped out at me. Of the people that had a response, 6 answered with the distance in miles while 7 answered with how long it took to get there. I just find it interesting in how people chose to answer.

    I made a new thread because i didn't want to clutter up the other one with this.

    That is interesting.

    When I was working I didn't know how far it was, all I knew was the time it usually took to get to work.

    Who cares how many miles it is. What matters is how long it takes.

    I live half mile from work and it takes me a minute and a half to get there.

    Had I answered the question I would have answered in miles. If I still lived in New Jersey I probably would have answered in how long it took me to get to work.

    The first time I was there I lived in Somerset and worked in Flemington. The second time I lived in Chatham and worked in Mountainside. Talk about a ****ty drive to work. I was thoroughly convinced that one day my car would roll end over end down the Mountain.

    You guys would ****** yourselves if you had to make my commute. Try 60 miles each way 1.5 hours to work, 2 hours from work. Oh don't ya just love Californians?

    I agree. I take a longer route to work than I need to, but it takes less time and is safer.

    But as a teacher I assume you'd still have to fail anyone who answered a distance question with time........

    Something like 11.3 miles. Time depends heavily on traffic in the morning (duh).

    18 miles if I take the 'shorter but more traffic' route (45 min - 1 hr) or 25 miles if i take the '$3 toll bridge, longer but less traffic' route (35-45 min).
