Those of you who do regular commutes to major metro areas know what I mean. All it takes is one major accident and your commute can be multiplied by hours. Count on it when bad weather days hit. Thinking of taking the train...not in NY, where train schedules can be as disrupted as automobile routes. (Ok, Mayor Bloomburg and The Donald can fly), but what about those of us (you) who cant? Do you listen to the traffic reports in the am? Do you work from home? Take sick/vacation days? What if these gridlocks are routine. How do you cope with them. Is it alright to be constantly off schedule at the office. Doesnt the stress of sitting in 2 hours of traffic each day leave you with chest pains? Or is road rage the name of the game?
