    I’m with a lot of PP’s.  My commute is 10 miles, but it takes me anywhere from 30 min-1 hour depending on the ridiculous traffic.

    My commute is thirty minutes, which is enough for me. I wouldn’t do an hour-long commute unless I absolutely had to, but with job opportunities as limited as they are these days, you may have to take it if the job is promising enough!

    My commute is 7 miles 1 way.  It takes 30 minutes to get there, and 45 minutes to get home.  🙁  Our company just moved to a different building (2 blocks from the old one).  It’s annoying because the extra 15 minutes to get home is usually spent sitting in line in our parking garage at work because it empties onto a busy street with no traffic cop.  Sometimes I leave at 5:30 or 6 just so I don’t have to deal with waiting in line in the parking garage.  I want to go back to the old building.

    Mine is about 40 mins but that’s on NYC subway, door to door. I would much prefer the subway to driving. Plus, sometimes I’ll go somewhere besides home after work and it’s all subway accessible so it’s not so bad. I’d love to walk to work, but once I’m on the subway, it’s not such a big deal. Though changing trains is annoying.

    I live 9 miles away from my office and it takes me anywhere between 35 minutes and an hour of bumper to bumper traffic.  If it snows, it will take at least an hour and 45 minutes.

    I arrive to work irritable and on edge, so I’m looking to get moved to one of the satellite offices that’s closer to my house.

    On weekends if I go in to school it takes about 20 minutes. In the mornings and around rush hour, it’s closer to 45 minutes. I don’t mind, though, because I’ve been using that time to learn a new language with cds and I thoroughly enjoy rocking out to the music in the car…. 🙂
