Rat Race

Like every morning when I drive to work, I was on the freeway around 6:30. There were so many cars, all headed somewhere, all before the sun had even begun to show itself.

It isn't to the point of stop and go like normal rush hour traffic, but it seems to me that soon it will be. Where are so many people going so early in the morning?

Me, I like getting in early to beat the traffic, and leaving early for the same reason although the traffic going home is generally worse than coming in (but not nearly as bad as if I were to leave an hour later, I'm sure).

This is just crazy. There is something perverted about that many cars on the road at that time of the morning; and I am in one of them. As I drove to work, amazed at the sheer number of my fellow commuters, even in the carpool lane, I thought there has got to be a better way to earn a living.

I am so glad I get to work from home a couple of days a week but then there are still those three days of going through the routine..
