Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Is this round-trip time?

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

My dream job would include working from my home office. So, I guess the answer is none.

Had one before I retired.
I lived and worked in a National Park.
My travel time (walking) from my house to my shop was under 2 minutes.

There was a time not to long ago I commuted every Monday and every Friday Thousands of miles each way. Houston to Chicago. Houston to Washington, Houston to New York, Houston to San Diego, and many others. Enjoyed the job, hated the travel.

One of the specifications of my dream job would be a short commute.

In the 70's 8 months for each of 5 years, I drove 1015 miles one way to work, which was my dream job, every 3 weeks, leaving Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada at 2AM Tuesday to Cleveland, Ohio pulling in the parking lot at work 2:15 to 2:20pm work 8 hours driving in the steel mill moving steel inside the mill then drive another 30 miles to get home. I never was stopped by the police on any of the trips, and never was in any wrecks

My dream job wouldn't require any commute time. Just sayin...

In order for it to be my dream job, it would require a minimal amount of time for commute.

Ditto. Altho I wouldn't mind traveling for my dream job, not so much commuting.

I put one hour, but this said dream job would have to offer work from home days - 2 to 3 a week. And one hour worst case, rainy day commute time traffic.
Right now I work from home 100 percent of the time unless I need to go to the data center for something, but I don't mind working in an office half the time.

I currently spend about 3.5 hours commuting every day - a 2 mile walk followed by a train and a bus ride. It's horrible.

I'd consider moving to be closer to my dream job.

I'd like to be a professional TV-watcher and would love to put in an 8-hour day without even having gotten out of bed.
