Today is monday

and begins yet another week of the painful drama of commuting to and from work.

Define: commuting

  • Travel between a personal home and work or job site within the area of an individual's tax home.
  • Traveling from one's residence to one's regular place of business and back to the residence.

  • To me commuting encompasses what is wrong with modern society. It is the navigation of the overcrowded transportation systems, the battling for a piece of personal space, the gasping for a breath of fresh air when trapped in a stale underground system with people with gradient definitions of personal hygiene.

    Much like my diatribe about travel, I realise that I am not a man about the journey - in fact the journey bites. If I could just appear in the office and back home without dealing with the soulless office monkeys that I see every morning and evening my life would be oh so much richer.
