  • I used to commute from Edmonds to Kent in traffic was about an hour. I didn't mind it. Gave me a chance to wake up, argue with the radio and drink a coffee. If you get paid enough and like the job it's certainly worth it.

    It's decent sized. Lived here my whole life and it's gotten MUCH bigger than when I was a kid. And I think it's the fastest growing part of the state. We have a good sized population, but it's not metro like Seattle. The TC is spread out.

    I seriously cannot even formulate a response to this. (But I just did...)

    Of course, why did the employers hire employees they can't trust to be responsible in the first place? Its not hard to vet that kind of behavior.

    Exactly. They could be monitored on occasion from the main office remotely via internet, a certain level of work completed could be pre-set, etc.

  • Ive been commuting from Sammamish to Ellensburg 4 days a week for the last 8 months to finish up my last year in school. Its 200 miles round trip and takes about 3.5 hours.

    I was dreading doing this before the school year, but it hasn't been nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I just put on sports radio and grab an energy drink and just enjoy the drive (in the morning). The drive back sucks because all you want to do is get home quickly. I have to deal with the pass too, but this year the snow has been really light, and I bought an all wheel drive car for my commute.

    For me, I'm only doing this because there is light at the end of the tunnel. If is was for a job that I planned on keeping for who knows how long, I probably wouldn't do it.
