My hour and a half commute into work this morning made me feel like I had wasted a perfectly good 90 minutes.
Then I lamented the fact that I’ll probably waste another 90 minutes on the way home tonight because of Spring Break traffic (all the metro-Atlanta counties are out starting tonight).
And that I’m so conditioned to think that almost three hours in the car each day is acceptable.
Maybe we’re all just a little too good at adapting. What kinds of crap have you gotten used to?
