There's only one possible explanation for this stat: Even more people are NUTS than I previously thought.
According to a new survey, believe it or not, 71% of people say their commute is usually peaceful and relaxing. Excuse me, WHAT?!
That being said . . . the average person is late 77 times a year because of problems with their commute.
And we're spending an average of 19 extra work days in our car commuting every year.
That might be why we try to avoid commutes, even if they ARE peaceful and relaxing . . . 63% of people said the length of the commute was a major part of their last job decision.
I'll say this: I LOVE my job. I'm so lucky to get to do this for a living. However, I have about an hour drive each morning and afternoon, which means I spend a minimum of 2 hours a day in the car. And there's nothing peaceful about screaming at morons who can't drive for 2 hours a day. Right blinker/left turn, driving slow in the left lane, the car in front of you slamming on brakes even though there's nothing in front of that car...yeah. Super peaceful alright.
