Here’s a quiz for all my commuting readers, to test your theoretical and practical knowledge on the Doctrine of the Happy Commuter. Is this a philosophical school you are familiar with or is it but a distant concept, rather like Salisbury ~ you know it exists, that it may well be a very pleasant place but you haven’t yet found any reason to go there? It’s not a complicated quiz. It’ll take you about five minutes to complete.
Hopefully it will make you think about how you live out your life and make you a better person. If that’s too much to ask for, perhaps it will just make you envy the gurus of the doctrine of the happy commuter and wish you were a better person, like them. Failing that, you it might make you smile a little on your way to work, which can’t be a bad thing, can it?
If you’re thinking, “Yes, it can,” in answer to that question, perhaps this quiz isn’t for you. Perhaps life isn’t for you, or at least not the one you’re living. Please remember this is only a quiz, it’s only a bit of fun. Getting the wrong answers doesn’t mean you’re unworthy of a place squeezed into an overcrowded train aisle and your life is meaningless. Both those things might be true but neither are the fault of this quiz. Nor might they be your fault. Take it easy on yourself and think through your options after a good night’s sleep and a walk in the fresh air well away from any cliffs.
After you’ve completed the quiz, you’ll be taken back to the top of this post. Scroll down and you’ll find your score where this paragraph is.
