When I was working in London, going from home ( SE London ) to jobs in W.London I would regularly spend 3+ hours a day in traffic driving to and from work . Accept it or get another job . Don't see anything different here .

Did you make up stories in your head about the other commuters?

When I was in London traffic I'd listen to the radio and smoke Marlboros, the time flew by.

I spent the 8 mile (1 1/2 hour) drive from West Hampstead to Harrow & Wealdstone on my phone (Working) smoking marlboro shaking off the hangover.

haha , nope . I was the navigator most of the time and the other guy was driving . On the way back I would have a couple of cans and smoke a few roll ups and watch the world go by . Spent hours on the Edgeware road going down to Marble Arch from jobs in N.London .

I sing sea shanties when I'm stuck in traffic...and lament not bringing my pipe to puff on.

If it's shit I tap the buttons on the steering wheel and ring Dad, then Mum, then my Sister.

Normally have someone in the car here for the drive home though so it's smoking and chatting.

I am lucky enough to be able to avoid all rush hour traffic, it would drive me nuts. It's bad enough trying to get out of Barsha at 11 am never mine 7.30 am

My 3.5m journey to work takes @30 mins. I spend all of this on the phone (Work related) and eating sweets so I don't think about smoking. I banned myself from smoking in cars a few years ago. Same on the way home calling friends and family.
