What's the hurry?

Over at "The Frog" MGA ponders his, and others', commute.

I still can’t figure out why everybody is in such a hurry to get to the place they don’t want to go. Going home I could understand but why such a hurry to get there? Driving down along 125 is more fascinating than an Interstate highway drive and it’s not just the construction workers staring at you as you weave through their coned mini-minotaur traps trying to avoid the oncoming WIDE LOAD prefab with three feet extended over into your windshield. You also get to look at the collection of autos like the hand painted bright blue VW Rabbit Pickup or the maroon Model A complete to its shiny little hub covers or this (we’ve gone through 30 years of wind tunnel research to make something as aerodynamic as a WW2 army infantry ambulance. Who’d a thunk it?).
