Yes.


Does he have some kind of chronic condition he is suffering from?

I wouldn't expect a worker to have to 'pay' in such a way to visit hospital.

If he is always there then fair enough give him a contract to match otherwise that's poor from his employer.

That's the school run.

When the kids are off the traffic evaporates to nothing here.


I get there's a bit of flexi working here and there, but not to that great an extent.

I work shifts and when I'm in at 09:00, it's quicker cycling the 7/8 miles to work as I'll be crawling for at least an hour otherwise. Same whether kids are at school or not.

Most other times I can drive to work in 20 minutes.

Really!? Roads seem most clogged up weekdays between 08:00-09:00 and 16:30-18:00 in Hull. An experience mirrored in most cities in Britain I've been to.


I'm not denying peak traffic times, I'm talking about people getting a 9-5 job Monday - Friday. I stand by my point these jobs are becoming increasingly rare.

Think about anyone getting a new job and working for a different company now, I doubt they would fall into this bracket.

Think about young people working these days, the working window is much more expansive than old fashioned 9-5 Mon - Fri.

Think about new starters and first step on the career ladder.

Look at the older generation supporting a pension, taking on hours far removed from the standard 9-5 Mon - Fri.

We live in a 24 hour world now and (guilty as charged as we are) 'our generation' are the dinosaurs thinking 9-5 Mon - Fri is the norm these days.

It really isn't. 

Now then...

Are you turning into Hulltim8 and arguing for the sake of it? I said between, Sonny Jim. 09:00 is when it tends to ease as people have made it to work. 16:30 is when it starts to build up again, it's generally the worst at just gone 17:00.


Not at all just call it as I see it and i agree with Nash, we have moved on from 9-5 and the main element in this congestion is indeed the school run. The fact that we work some of the longest hrs in Europe with many working regular 10, 11, 12 hr days (for whatever reason) also tends to run against your argument.

Also, how many medium to large size companies operate just a day shift, what about the ever growing service industry even in Hull we do have places open after 5 and maybe to a lesser degree before 9. 

Fuck the short term we will build a 1000 year Hull City Reich

You're both having a giraffe. London tube, the SE rail network and buses are rammed between 0630-0845 and 1630-1830. It really isnt just the school run. It's around a million people heading to and from work around the same time.

Sure, life is changing fast and there is a huge move to later evening and weekend working, but a large percentage of workers work set hours based around the times mentioned.

The real scandal is that, several thousand years after the expulsion from the Garden of Eden, we're still working ridiculous hours and there aren't enough homes to go round.

SOMEONE ACTUALLY WROTE THIS:Yes,I can see them deciding to fly planes into buildings in a country which didn't exist at the time of the fall of Jerusalem centies later because of the 70,000 killed then.

You've missed the point Gull.

Nobody is denying these are the most popular times of travel.

What I'm saying is; finding a new job that offers these hours is becoming increasingly sparse.

Thanks.

The 24hour economy is migrating work across the time period and creating more jobs that are not 9-5.

Long distance commuting is under serious becuase millennials will not sit on a train for half their lives just for a 'bracing walk' in the countryside on a Sunday. How many bedrooms and land you got? Is so last century. Here in greater Manchester 95% of 16-30 year olds now aspire to live in the city precisely so they don't have to commute. Cycling, live/work units and the service economy are all driving the opposite effect.

I look at London as the opposite to the national norm and all I see are fucking idiots.

I would rather live in half the floor space than live on a train / stationary car half my life. That's why I moved to the city centre.

Gave something up - gained massively in quality of life.

Here you go again. Some poor cunt is having to work the graveyard shift, or a 12 hourer, and you're extolling its virtues.

Open your mind DUDE it's the 21century.

My 18 year olds works in fits and starts, gets money, goes travelling, buys some equipment for his band, does some shifts, leaves a job, gets a new one.

You are so last millennium.

I'm sure his wife and children are cool with that. It's a bit "odd" that you only consider "the kids" that you are down and dirty with. There are still one or two folk who expect to live "ordinary" lives, although the house with a garden is no longer an option, but they might be OK with a bijou flat in one of Manchester's more edgy areas.

Professional football on a Friday night, Saturday dinner, Sunday tea time, maybe even Monday morning at 8am, sounds so this century.

It's seemingly what customers want.

They drive the economy right?
