Most of us have to commute to work, unless we are lucky enough or foresightful enough to have our own business and our domicile located next to our place of busineess, like my father. Here are a few commuter jokes and cartoons to help you bear up under that daily commute:
A recent college graduate took a new job in a hilly Eastern city and began commuting each day to work through a tiring array of tunnels, bridges and traffic jams. Thinking it would make the trip more bearable, he invited several coworkers to share the ride. However, the commute actually got more stressful, especially the trips through the tunnels. He consulted the company doctor.
"Doc," the frustrated commuter complained, "I'm fine on the bridges, in the traffic, in the day and at night, and even when Joe forgets to bathe all week. But now, when I get in the tunnels with those four other guys crowded into the car, I get anxious and dizzy, and I feel like I'm going to explode."
Without further analysis, the doctor announced he had diagnosed the ailment. "What is it, Doc? Am I going insane?" "No, no, no, my boy. You have something that is becoming more and more common." "Tell me! What is it?"
(wait for it...)
"You have what is known as Carpool Tunnel Syndrome."
(And I just head that groan. Admit you still thought it was a little bit funny...)
At a commuter train station a policeman noticed a woman driver bowed over the steering wheel of her car shaking hysterically..
'Is there anything wrong ma'am?' said the policeman.
Half crying and half laughing the woman responded, 'For ten years I have driven my husband to the station to catch his train. He makes my mornings miserable — every morning for 10 years he has missed his train, until today. Ten years of listening to him go on and on and on telling me about how I make him lose out on enjoying his coffee and paper in peace. This morning he nagged me all the way to the station and we finally made his schedule. He is on HIS train!"
'Okay, said the policeman feeling a little confused, 'Then why are you laughing?'
'He doesn't work Saturdays and I am going out for the rest of the day!'
(Never mess with a woman. Especially if she is your wife...)
