Thanks to my friend who I stole this from...(oh well, he will never know ;P)

A commutator commutes to his group at work and back to his community locomotive station daily, arriving at 18:23. His conjugate drives from home to pick him up. Like all conjugates, they are very precise, and arrive precisely as the train arrives. One day, the commutator arrives at 16:23 due to an early release day. Since he did not want to interrupt his conjugate's train of thought, he simply started walking home along the route that which they traverse daily. The conjugate pairs meet along the path, and immediately head back home. They arrive home 23 minutes earlier than usual. How many minutes did the commutator walk before he was picked up by his conjugate?
