Some friends and I were having a conversation while out at lunch today, and they were amazed at how early I have to leave my house in the morning to make it to work in time. I’m a teacher, btw, and I have to leave by about 6:30-6:45 a.m.
When do you ladies have to leave the house on a normal weekday morning? I didn’t think I was THAT much of a minority- lol.

I am up at 5:30 to leave the house by 5:55/6:00 am I have to be at work by 6:30. I always give myself enough time just in case. Plus I hate clocking in and starting right away. I have to get settled first.

I leave around 8:30 to get to the office by 9/9:15.
Although I only have 1 week left of work and after that I will be rolling out of bed and right into packing tape/boxes/etc to pack up the apartment.

@brideatbeach: There are days I love it because I am out by 3, but then I hate it because I’m up so damn early. Hah. I guess getting out at 3 is a major plus.

I voted 7am since that’s what time we should be leaving but it almost never happens. Fiance and I work for the same company so considering he’s the absolute worst in the morning, we normally head out around 7:30. We have a 45 minute commute (without traffic) so we’re almost always late. Thankfully we work in a pretty relaxed work environment and our bosses don’t even notice/care if we’re late.

@Rouquine: I leave at 6:30 a.m. and don’t get home until about 6:30 p.m. because I’m a coach. 🙁
Once the season is over, though, I leave the house at 6:30 a.m. and get home around 4 p.m. or 4:30 p.m., so then it’s not so bad.
During the season, it’s kind of hellish, though. haha.

Oh my good Lord, 6:30 is like the middle of the night for me! When I was temping and I had to be at an office by 8 it was torture. Sheer Hell. Lol I work from home now luckily, but I don’t hit my stride until around 10:30.

@brideatbeach: I may be starting a 12 hour shift position soon though so I’d be working 7-7:30. Ugh.

My hours are flexible. If I have an early meeting at 8:30a, I’ll need to be on the road by 7:30ish. On other days, I leave between 9-10:30a. It gets me out of driving in rush hour traffic. I don’t usually leave work til about 6:30 to 7:30p.

We leave between 7 and 8 depending on what we have on (I drop Fiance to the station on the way to the office) and I have about a half hour commute. I can start anytime before 10, but like PP, the earlier I start the earlier I get my work done and the earlier I can head home!!
Usually I can get a run in in the evening before I drive back down to pick up the Mister!

I make my own hours. I don’t like to be at the office before 10am. Sometimes I don’t go in till after lunch but then I stay late. Owning your own business has its perks for sure. 🙂
