I love driving on long trips. Heading up north (a Michigan thing) for the weekend is great. Even driving across town on a weekend to go visit friends or family is enjoyable.
But I hate driving in rush hour or congestion.
I avoid it at all costs. Right now, it's pretty easy for me since I work only a few miles from home. While I do hit traffic on the way home, it's not so bad.
But going back to the ‘all costs' part, I realized that it actually saves me money.
Because I'll avoid going out in it.
I realized that I haven't gone out for a fast-food lunch in months, maybe years. Do I like fast food? Sure. Are there plenty of places available in the area? Yep.
But I don't go because I hate dealing with the lunch crowds. Both the traffic on the roads as well as the ‘pleasure' of waiting in line wherever I go keeps me at my desk, eating my lunch at home.
Pretty spiffy, I'd say.
