I Don't Have a Car

    3 Years Now.

    I was already riding my bikes a great deal before I retired and almost all the time afterward. I had a truck and a van and didn't need both so I sold the truck. Then I got to thinking that the van was sitting and costing me $200 a month even if I didn't drive it. For $50 a day I...

    No Car

    Yeah, it kind of stinks. I didn't get my driver's license until the last few weeks of my senior year of high school. Then, when I started college, my parents didn't let me take my truck to college. I guess a good thing about it is that I don't have to spend any money on gas...

    I Don't Really Need a Car

     I did have a car for a long time but as my lifestyle changed ie; I got a job close to home and started shopping at a supermarket down the road, I found that I had less need for one. It got to the point where I was only using it once a week, the rest of the time it just sat...

    Nope and It Stinks

    Well I guess part of the reason why I don't have a car is because I don't have my license quite yet (you can read the reasons why in my other experiences), but even when I go and get my license at the end of August I still won't have a car because my family can't afford a third...

    Not Too Bad Without a Car

    I'm 22 and a college student.  I've never needed a car that badly so I never bothered getting a car or a driver's liscence.  For me their aren't alot of things I can't do because I don't have a car.  I feel that the American mentality has become to vehicle centric...

    So I Learned These Other Nifty Skills Instead:)

    I don't have a car, so I rode my bike. Then I didn't have a bike, so I learned to rollerblade. Then I returned the rollerblades, so I learned to skateboard. I LOVE not having a car.... I feel so cool and proud of myself, being a young woman who can skateboard like all those...

    Maybe In the Future

    i dont have a car...which is partly good since i CANNOT stand being stuck in traffic any time of the day. but then again, taking a public bus every now and then sucks too! i guess i'll just wait for the day when flying cars will be manufactured...or is that too much to ask for?

    Don't Need One

    Now, come winter I may change my tune, but as it stands I have no need of a car.  I live within easy walking distance of a bus stop, in a city with excellent public transportation.  Why should I mess with a car?My budget is snug enough without worrying about the care and...

    But don't tell him too often because it goes to his head and he will go on for days about it (causing my mind even more anxiety)
