Life Without A Car

Having taken my car to get repaired only a day ago, I’m already going crazy! How do people live without having a car? It’s so inconvenient! I can’t go eat where I want to, go to a museum or the zoo like I planned, I can’t even go to church tomorrow! I understand if you live in New York City you really might not need a car, but anywhere else seems impossible.

  1. My car was in the shop for four days! I semi-feel your pain as I’m lucky enough to have a husband with a vehicle. It was annoying having to get up earlier to carpool to work, but I really can’t complain too much. Here’s hoping you get your car back soon, and it’s not too expensive!

  2. It’s even more impossible where I live – in a small town of less than 500 people 85km away from the city. Doctor and dentist appointments, movie theatre, grocery, and pretty much everything else is in the city.

  3. Even when I don’t need my car . . . say it is just in the shop for the DAY and I planned on staying put! It is still an awful feeling (to me) to not “have” my car!

    Hopefully the repairs go quick for you!

  4. My worst experience without a car was several months in winter. I lost my car 2 a thrown rod in the last week of December, and I was not able to get a replacement for it until almost the end of March. I had just started a new job that gave me a bus pass. So I was able to take it to work. The problem was that it was at least an hour and a half to get the four different buses to the other side of the city is where I live. Once training was done my commute was much shorter but I had to walk three-quarters of in Sub-Zero temperatures during the middle of a Minnesota winter.

    That was vile. When I finally got a new car it was like a breath of fresh air. Like I was released from jail. Till then comma I was totally dependent on friends to get major chores done. I could never survive like so many of the people that I rode with that never got a car. The amount of time that I had to spend just to cater to basic needs like getting to and from work was oppressive.

    You have my deepest sympathies even though it was for just a brief taste.
