An hour one-way is a hell of a long time when you’ve got a busy day.

and like I said depending on where you are or whats going on on the roads car, bus, walking all sometimes will take about the same time. though buses always seem to take the longest no matter what

it don’t take that long though like 5 miles takes like an hour. you can do that a hell of a lot faster in a car depending on where you are.

Like open country roads 5 miles takes a few minutes around here some times in a car 5 miles will take well over an hour cuz all the traffic and to take a bus even on days there isn’t a lot of traffic still take them longer than an hour to go about that far.

10 miles all at once is a hell of a long walk but 5 or 6 isn’t bad

How do you know?

I fucking walk every day to either school or work and back and to any other place I need to go.

6 miles to school 6 miles back. 4 miles to work and 4 miles back. The closet store is 3.5 miles away from my house and I walk there all the time

I think he was bitching about having to walk 6 miles there, 6 back, 4 to work, 4 back.

I’m currently making $15 an hour at a yogurt factory with no college time at all. But once I’m done with college in a few years (I start in August) I’ll be makin’ bank!

I run a lot as well I don’t run as much as I walk but that mostly for the fact that every thing is coated in ice right now and i"m not trying to kill myself on the hill around here.

and I wasn’t “boasting” about the fact that I walk more the fact that people act like walking is such a horrible thing to do like I said before 5 miles in nothing to walk. back when I was totally out of shape and fat as hell I could still walk 5 miles with out a problem.

Where do you live? Around here $15 per hour is a pretty decent wage.

A college degree is the difference between the job I’m studying for, a tax preparer, and the job I have… As a liberty tax mascot making 9 dollars an hour in horrible weather conditions.

I was making $14 an hour, almost double what minimum wage is, and I wouldn’t call that “living comfortably”. Between bills, food, and gas, I had almost nothing left over. Only once in a while when I got a bonus would I be able to splurge a little bit.

It’s not the food that will get you, it’s the living expenses. Rent/mortgage, electricity, water, gas, and internet/cable/phone.

I live on ~20,000 a year. And I could cut back considerably if needed.

You get paid that much? No way I though you people made more then minimum wage.

it don’t take that long though like 5 miles takes like an hour.

That’s an average of 12 minutes per mile.

That means your first mile is going to be 8-10 minutes. Walking.

Lol no.

Minimum wage in Indiana is 7.25. I am also paid cash… Which would REALLY be about $12-13 an hour with taxes as a factor. But I am the exception. Screw your country and your federal prison.
