Once again, I'm the original commenter who stated they have a 100 mile commute everyday.
You know, it's kind of getting pretty funny. For some reason you think your situation applies to everyone. Moving closer to my job is not an option. Getting a job closer to home is not an option. Believe me, I've tried. No business or company ANYWHERE even remotely close to where I live will pay me what I am currently making.
And unlike you, I don't have a spouse to make up the difference in pay. Perhaps that's enough of an "excuse" for you? Although I'd say it's more of a REASON.

"If you do in fact live in such a remote area, everything is inconvenient, and even with a freezer, it's yet more running to stores."
I'm the original person who wrote the 100 mile daily commute comment. Just here to add one more thing to my last comment.
The area I live in is quite remote. However, it's not so incredibly so that we don't have a supermarket or other convenience stores. Oh and we also have indoor plumbing and electricity (amazing right?). It takes me about 5 minutes to get to the center of town where convenience stores and the supermarket are located. That's not exactly what I'd call inconvenient.
Like I've said many times already, my oldest son has his license AND his own car to drive. So if I really didn't want to go out to get something, I'll send him. And in fact, he does help with errands.
You seem to have such a problem with where I live and the way I live. Remind me again how it even affects you in any way at all? If living in a suburb and driving your Suburban 3 miles to work everyday works for your, then so be it. I never said I wanted to drive 100 miles a day, I said it didn't bother me. Like I said in MOST of my previous comments, moving closer to work or getting a job closer to home are not options for me.
I have one final question for you. If driving 100 miles a day and running errands soaks up so much of my time, then how is it I've had the time to come on here and respond to each and every one of your comments?
