Friday

Does everyone drive two cars on Friday? Monday-Thursday my commute is about 45 minutes to 1 hour, except on Friday afternoon. I don't know why, but traffic is ten times worse and it takes almost 2 hours to go 35 miles.

... i feel the same way at times. But I do cross paths of 3 highways of which 1 is going to a large military base. Traffic suck no matter what.

I get off at 2:30pm so I'm normally way ahead of the traffic. Maybe everybody leaves work early on Friday.

It was that way when I lived in Maryland. Don't even bother trying to get on the DC beltway between 3pm-7pm on a Friday, it'll be a parking lot.

Friday is actually my easy day where I work since half the workforce works only Mon.-Thur.

Usually my fridays there's less traffic on the freeway over here. Like half the people have the day off. Interesting that its backwards over there.

I wanted to go 2 miles up the road to look at a living room set. 5:30pm on a Friday. Metcalf and I-435. I went ~250 feet in 20 minutes.







My commute home is now 30 seconds.

I turned around at a "no u-turn" literally flipping that sign off and grabbed a burger then went home until 7pm when it was somewhat tolerable.

Living near a military base, traffics bad from 5-8 due to first formation being around 830-9.
On fridays its really bad around 430-7.
On 4 day weekends, forget about going out either friday or monday depending if it is a full 4 day or 3 day.

Usually my version of traffic is me sitting amongst 7 lifted beat up chevy k1500's waiting for the light to change. Ah, Mississippi.
