I drove on the M5 motorway this morning and it made me want to commit serious acts of violence.
@MattHatton it’s bad, so bad
@MattHatton there’s a dream job I’m considering applying for, a big pay bump, I’m quite qualified, it would involve a lot of the M5. I’m conflicted.
@liamvhogan If you can either do it earlier or later then it's *tolerable*.
@MattHatton will it be much better than a twenty minute walk or five minute bike ride? This is the competition and I don’t think a 4am start to beat the traffic is going to cut it
@liamvhogan Depends. Where would you be going to/from?
@MattHatton the inner west to the illawarra. You see my dilemma
@liamvhogan The thing working in your favour there is that you're going against the traffic - it's utterly fucked going into the city, but if you're going away from it the run is good.
@liamvhogan The bigger problem is working out how to navigate The Shire because the Princes Highway is a dumpster fire and Google Maps is notionally suggesting driving through Padstow to Menai to Heathcote which is an annoying circle.
@MattHatton I knew a woman who did uni at Sydney while living in Wollongong. I don’t use the word ‘superhuman’ often, but sometimes it’s the only noun to fit
@liamvhogan I did five months of commuting from Newcastle to Sydney for work when I finished uni and, frankly, fuck that shit.
