    Congrats on the new job for sure!!! But 23 miles (if you were complaining) is nothing compared to my drive every day.. Right now im 165 miles round trip (about 4 hours of driving) to my job and back every day for about the next month. For 15 years I drove 90 miles round trip for work. I only get paid an hour extra a day for driving so I would take 23 miles in a heartbeat.. (Of course company truck and fuel helps tremendously.. wouldn't do it otherwise.)
