Charlie ain't cheap
Re: a story in today's BostonNow.
I spend $210.00 a month on my commuter rail pass, plus $4.00 a day ($20.00 a week--what a deal!) for parking for a grand total of $290.00 a month just to get to work. Gas is negligible since I live about 15 minutes from the train station by back roads. The total commute is an hour and a half door-to-door for a total of three hours a day, or 15 hours a week, which equals about two extra full working days. All for the privilege of going to a job that really isn’t that satisfying and doesn’t pay enough to meet all my monthly bills. Welcome to my life, and probably a fair number of other people’s lives, too.
