"A woman who says busy roads worsen her anxiety has sued a former employer who refused to change her schedule to avoid rush-hour traffic. Andrea DeGerolamo also contends Fulton Financial Corp. fired her in May 2013 in retaliation for her efforts to address alleged workplace bias."
I honestly can say I feel for this woman. I lived in NY and worked in NJ and it took me 2+ hours some days to go 27 miles, thanks to traffic in certain areas (mainly, the George Washington Bridge/Turnpike). I would sob some days. Needless to say I am not an offensive driver. Nor am I a good defensive driver, lol.
I don't know if I'd have sued, but if she did try to change her schedule to work off-major traffic times and the hours were within normal times (i.e., she wasn't asking to work 1pm-9pm) then I can understand the frustration.
Does driving set your anxiety off?
