I have been utilizing airport transportation in Bergen County NJ for about a year now. Ever since I took on new responsibilities at work which have me flying out to China every three months in order to lend some leadership on site at one of our developing divisions, I fly in and out from NJ each time. I’ve come to discover that jet lag and I have no synergy what so ever. I’m left in a state of complete exhaustion which is the only reason that I have had my employer pay for a limousine ride back and forth from the airports whenever I do fly.
I do it so I can nap. It’s amazing what a cap nap can accomplish to help deter the fatigue from jet lag. It will generally take me 2-3 days to recuperate completely but I know myself well enough to recognize when I shouldn’t drive. I would only be another hazard on a road filled with enough of them as it is. Every time I use the limousine service I feel a little bit more spoiled; it’s hard not to request a full time driver! I could get so much accomplished if I had one.
I know better than to ask for something like that though. Unlike in China where I can have a dude peddle me around in a cart all day, there is nothing like that here in the United States. At least not in New Jersey! But it would be amazing to have a driver handle the stresses of traffic for me. That, too, is not something that I am particularly apt at dealing with. I have serious road rage every morning which is a part of me that I thoroughly dislike about myself. I don’t want to be angry going into work!
