That's EXACTLY how I feel. I hate being at the mercy of the train schedule. I always drive to Manhattan, well almost always. Occasionally I will drive to Brooklyn or QUeens and park at a subway station there and then take the subway in for the last leg of my trip, but that's when I know I will be going at a time when it will be hard to park in Manhattan.
The only time I would relent and take the LIRR in is if I had to go at rush hour for some reason, and the roads would be a mess, or if I was planning to drink a lot there, which isn't all that often either.

There have been times where I had to be somewhere in Manhattan at 9 or 10, and knew that driving in to get there at that time would be a mess at rush hour, so actually left suffolk BEFORE rush hour to drive in, and just get there early, so that again, I wouldn't be at the mercy of the train schedule when it was time to leave.
I can't do the train anymore, I did my time, and really have no desire to do it anymore. It's usually faster to drive, even having to deal with traffic.
If you count in travel time, as WELL as wasted time waiting for the train to leave Penn Station, I just have no desire to do it anymore.
