All of the time, I think about how stupid it is that we don't have staggered shifts. I know it's potentially disruptive for meetings, but many face-to-face meetings could be just as effective if they were teleconferences. Blue collar work is another entirely separate beast.
I'm pretty spoiled, though. Work hasn't been an attendance grade for me since early 2015, but I've never worked as hard as I have since then. I have about two or three teleconferences each week, and then there's only one afternoon a week where I schedule all my meetings and actually have to be physically present somewhere.
There are people I know who have a 1+ hour commute (one way!) entirely in a car. In Texas, it's actually a status symbol to move as far as possible from the urban center you work at, and then drive the largest truck that can fit in your garage. We had better be taxing the hell out of fossil fuels within a decade, because these idiots can't think beyond their wallet, and we're not developing a social stigma around carbon emissions nearly fast enough.
