I think it's a working-from-home thing, but god knows why anyone would want to live in a Travelodge long-term.

I think it's saying that if you need to go to meetings in London you can stay at a Travelodge all week and treat the desk as your office while you're there to save on renting one of those ghastly office spaces. A pied-à-terre with worse internet and no kitchen but with which you can confidently take an escort or gay-fling to.

This would save you going back and forth as the desk can also allow you to videocall your ex-wife in the evening to get an update on the children and to beg her to come back again.

Do people seriously make a 2.5 hour commute though because that's just sad. I don't care how much money you make, no amount is enough to compensate wasting the precious hours you were given on this earth sat in traffic on the m4 for five hours a day.

if you think otherwise you just don't have a fucking life and it's as simple as that.

Look at the map, If you lived in Reading, Didcot or Swindon you'd want to get out of there as well.

It is about 2½ hours from Bristol to London by road, but it's about half that by train. I dunno, I'm not a southerner so I've never had a regular commute of more than 20 mins, apart from when I worked for the NHS and in that job it was counted as part of the working day.

Southerners would willingly spend 5 hours a day commuting for an extra £10k gross a year because they're retards.

It's one metre in 0.4 seconds, Carol. So that's 2.5 metres per second. I don't know how fast that is.

1 metre in 0.4 seconds = 2.5 metres per second.

2.5 metres per second = 150 metres per minute.

150 metres per second = 9,000 metres per hour.

9,000 metres = 5.59 miles per hour

That sounds like a very uncomfortable speed. Too fast for a casual walk, too slow for a brisk jog or a decent run. Right in that awkward middle ground where you're putting in more energy but not really getting much out of it.

Good job you're only doing it for the one metre distance from your travelodge bed to your travelodge work station, with a lovely view of a train station or whatever in the background.

Even sao, it seems like a very awkward way to make that commute. It would suggest, to me, vigorously jumping out of bed in the manner you might when you realise you slept through your alarm. unable to gather much speed because your primary method of ambulation is rolling over your arse, but with the urgency of attempted haste.

brings me up in anxiety it does.

They are. You've seen the house prices down south. It's not that mad to them.

How much is a Travelodge, about £30 a night? For about £900 per month it'd beat a house share down south, especially as you wouldn't have to worry about paying the gas or the leccy.

For the one next to junction 39 off the m1 you'd only go to if your wife kicked you out, maybe.

They do adjust their prices to the local area, a travelodge in a "nice" city will be £80-120, and I'm pretty sure they scalp when there's a big event like a gig or sportsball match on.

I can't picture that travelodge. Are you sure you aren't thinking of cedar court, which is now full of refugees?

I might just be thinking of the wrong junction. 37 or 38 maybe, the one for barnsley.

it also might be a premier inn, same difference though.
