So we were ready to applaud Paul Cox, who manages to avoid all of this by paragliding to work every day!
The inventive dad-of-two sets off every day from his garden in Anglesey, Wales to fly the 10-mile journey to his work as an independent contractor for the Royal Navy in Holyhead.
His flying machine, a seat attached to a fan motor and parachute, cost £8,000 and folds away into a suitcase when he arrives.
It's well worth worth it if you ask us, especially as it only takes half an hour!
Paul was quoted in the Daily Mirror, saying: "You have to concentrate but it does take you away from it all."
What a start to your day!
