Adjusting to living in a major city has been more difficult than I anticipated. The constant noise, the rush, how shockingly disconnected everyone seems to be... on good days, it doesn't bother you but on bad days, you find yourself clenching your jaw more often than not.

Today was a particularly frustrating day. I mean, I made $400 for two total hours of actual work, but it was a very frustrating two hours and I had a commute of almost 5 hours in total. Yeah, yeah. I know. First world problems - woe is me.

That's not the point. The point is that I live in a metropolitan area with 8.5 million people and I get to come home after a shitty day, crack open a beer and sit out on the patio to look at this:

Hahahaha! You come to a text-based site for the "chicks"? Not only are you a loser, you're a painfully stupid loser.

"I'm not flipping out, but screw you guys! This place sucks anyway! There's no girls here! I'm leaving!"

Good. GTFO and take your impending cirrhosis, overpriced, obsolete wristwatch, and the dog who just wishes you'd respect personal boundaries with you. Stay whingy, you mewling sot.

Loosen up? I'm not the one flipping out (on UBERSITE, FFS) over being (jokingly) called names.

But never mind. I don't know why I started coming back to this shit site. There's no chicks (unless you count Shlongy and her smelly, worn out vagina), no decent writing, no nothing. Just the same boring choads who can't stop living in the past.

Adios, motherfuuuukeeeerrrrrs.

I give this a +2 with an additional pitchfork up Director's floppy anus. Loosen up, fool or the tines will rip your intestines out.

You're right, Director. That was completely uncivilized of us. We'll strive to be more accurate in the future.

I'm neither of homosexual persuasion, unemployed, or a Drump supporter. But please do keep making assumptions, the lot of you. It shows your incredible depth and intelligence.

Hahaha hahaha

Old Ebbitt Grill is my favorite joint in DC; I openly admit that I don't know the names of too many other places that I've been to in the city. Mrs. Shlongy is from Arlington so I've spent some time there.

I'm 20 minutes from the train station, and thereafter three hours from London. Honestly, as long as I have a decent internet connection, a few monitors and a bit of space to talk to clients on the phone/VOIP it could be anywhere. It's one of the reasons I resist client visits unless there is a pressing need to be particularly charming.

There's are fewer reasons you have to endure a city these days now. I've an office which is 20 minutes from home, and at least part of that is so I have somewhere to leave documents and talk to colleagues.

I'd do a post with some pictures of my commute, but a google images search of countryside England will do just as well!

A five hour commute is ridiculous. I have refused all trips to the states because so many face to face meetings are less efficient than a brief call. I also don't attend meetings where they don't send me the agenda a day in advance or if more than 5 people have been invited. It's ludicrous expecting people to sit there when you could have prepared answers, or to be involved in a tiny fragment of a mega meeting and spend the rest of the time wanting to get on with the work.

I miss my simple country life, red. I really do. The one thing that has kept me sane through this is that I still have my little house out in the country. I travel there every two weeks. It's what makes being self-employed worth it - I work 10 days straight in exchange for a four-day unwind in the mountains, far away from the hustle and bustle.

Good on you for embracing the simple life. There's something to be said for living a life less complicated.

I could never go back to living in a city. They stink of traffic and people. Every time I have to travel to or through a city I am shocked and repulsed anew by the noise, the smells, the bustle, the crowds, the rush and the living atop one another.

I never thought I'd be a country boy, but living by the sea, backed by countryside, where the idea of a traffic jam is a tractor doing 20mph, or a farmer moving his cattle across the road to fresh fields is a little bit of heaven.

There is nothing quite as dark as the sea at night when you're miles away from a city. Where the nearest motorway is 100 miles away. Where the loudest noise is the seagulls or the neighbour using his lawnmower on sunday morning while I potter around in my kitchen, making bacon and eggs.

The sound of shotguns during hunting season was a bit disconcerting at first; they sound like the popping of distant balloons; but it's amazing how natural the sounds become when you've been gifted a few pheasants in the pub.

DC/Silver Spring area, Shlongy. My little haven of peace is just outside the beltway.

Was at Old Ebbitt just last weekend and thought of you. I was going to come here and comment about it, but Bart killed Uber temporarily.

I need more specifics (i.e. Which city?, etc.) before I can give this piece of crap a fair and just rating: Because ratings are everything.

Five hour commute is better than living in the city.
