These "but commutes are good actually!" articles are really cheesing me off. They all boil down to people enjoying dedicated break time where they have no work or personal responsibilities. You don't need a commute for that, you need boundaries.

I agree with you.... but...
For some of us it is really hard.


@binder @maxeddy an "objective" means/excuse for forcing a boundary is a helpful enough crutch that some people can't do without it... especially in places and fields where worker protection legislation is weak or absent and it basically hinges on whether the boss can be fooled into thinking the downtime in question is inevitable
