    commute ?

    Please check this paragraph.


    When I accepted the job I assumed the commute to work would be short. However, it is not the case as waiting for the bus took some time and also the traffic jams along the way. That is the reason why I quit my job at ABC Company last month.

    I most respectfully suggest something such as:

    When I accepted the job, I assumed that the commute would be short. However, that did not turn out to be the case.

    Not only did waiting for the bus each morning eat up time, but we passengers also often found ourselves stuck in massive

    traffic jams. So I quit working at ABC Company last month.
