Out the door by 7:30am and trekked to Canary Wharf by car, train, tube, train and then walking. Took over two hours. Then a tedious visit at a customer followed by the same long trek home getting back after 8:00pm. That kind of commuting can really suck the life force out of you and reminds me of one of the reasons I want to get out of consulting. I've got the same gig tomorrow *sigh*.
The only good thing I'll say for commuting is that it gives you a kind of think time. You can essentially zone out while your body finds the way there. Driving can be especially hypnotic that way. From the looks of it, I don't think I'm alone in zombie commuting.
