Yup. In office i only do donkeys work of feeding in data, cutting-cropping images etc which requires zero creativity.

Then i take all these files home and sit again at 12am-3am.

Mumbai to Navi Mumbai in the mornings - 2 scenarios

1) If I leave at 0845 - I am in office by 0920

2) If I leave at 0850 - I reach office by 0935

In the evening it takes me 35 minutes, door to door delivery irrespective of the time I leave.

But since roads in Airoli have been dug up for concretisation - I am going to have a hard time.

Location: Adelaide/Australia
Profession: IT (systems support)
Leave home at about 8:45 for a 9 am start (office is just 1.8 kms from home)
Knock off at 5 or little earlier reach home in about 8-10 minutes.

My office is out of city so when all the roads are choc-a-block with traffic moving towards the city, I get very less traffic on road heading to the opposite direction and vice versa in the evening. Its just the two traffic lights on the way that decide should I reach in 8 mins or 10 mins

Bengaluru. IT. Got my timings changed since last year to 7AM - 3 PM (8AM - 4 PM off Daylight savings). No Traffic and lots of peace. Takes 5 minutes to office and 10 minutes on the way back. Peak hour, rush hour ? Whats that ?
