    I commute 30 min by car to my current job. For my dream job, I’d increase that to one hour max. I hate commuting, traffic, road rage, higher gas prices and most importantly loss of time in my day that I could be doing something else! I could never commute 1 1/2 hours each way like so many people do. I’d go crazy! It’s not worth it for me no matter what job and how high the pay. I like my sanity, thank you. 🙂

    @ellabee: I hear you.  It sucks – a long commute just takes everything out of you.  Although, the one good thing about a long commute + public transportation is that I got to read a lot.

    My commute is about 10 minutes from my house, or 45 minutes from SO’s house. This is not my dream job, and 45 minutes is the absolute most I would commute for it. But, for my dream job, I would absolutely commute over an hour, but two would be too much for me.

    I used to live about 5 minutes from my job… it was exactly 1.8 miles. (man that was nice!)

    Now I live at least 40 minutes one way to my job and thats on a zero traffic day.  Most days it takes over an hour each way.

    Thankfully, I work from home 3 days a week so I am only making that hour long drive each way 2 days a week.   And thats a good thing because the days were I do have to commute I am soooo grumpy.  I hate just sitting in traffic.
