RIDDLE: GOING HOME

By: Submitted By: S. S

One day, David takes the subway home from work. He tells his wife he will arrive at exactly 6:00 PM.
His wife left and was scheduled to arrive to pick him up at exactly 6:00 PM. David decides to take an earlier train, arriving at the station at 5:00 PM. He decides not to call his wife, but begins to walk toward home along the fastest route, knowing that's how his wife will drive. They meet somewhere along the route; he gets into the car; and they drive home. They arrive home 10 minutes earlier than planned. How long had the husband been walking when he was picked up by his wife?
