I Spend More Time Communting than I get in Vacation


Spending some time on Digg and ran into this article – by a fellow Houstonian no less – about commute times. Didn’t get through the first paragraph before I was breaking out the calculator.

I spend about 30 minutes each way on my commute. So an hour a day. I get two weeks vacation. So I spend 250 hours commuting. I get 80 hours of vacation. That is just depressing.
