JOB STRESS: Starts Even Before You Get There


Work is stressful enough, but for a lot of us, that stress starts before you even get there.

In anew survey, one-third of Americans say their morning commute leaves them agitatedevery day. Making matters worse is the boss. More than a quarter of Americans say management isn't sympathetic to commuting woes, and on average, we're marked as late if we get there six minutes after we're supposed to.

The number-one reason people cite for being late to work is traffic. More than half of us have also been held up by a flat tire and by a dead battery.
