Commutes are hellish.
Sure, you’re headed home after a long day of work, but you’re stuck in traffic wondering 1) why no one knows how to drive, and b) why your city’s civil engineers are such morons for designing these impenetrable roadways.
By the time you finally get home you need three
drinks to unwind.
It’s especially bad for people who live in Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, and New York—the five most congested U.S. cities by commute time.
On average, urban commuters spend 34 hours a year in the car.
(The average person spends about 91 hours a year
in the bathroom, while the typical Facebook user commits 93 hours a year
to “liking” and poking.)
