Today’s question:

If you live somewhere that it’s essential to own a vehicle for day-to-day

living, if public transportation where you live were to suddenly be

improved to the point that it became a viable alternative to taking your

own vehicle, would you still feel the need to own a vehicle? On the flip

side, if you do live where there is decent public transportation, do you

still find it necessary to own a vehicle?

Answer:

In 2009 I moved back to my hometown. My apartment complex is

located a few blocks from the last house I shared with my parents.

In comparison to the ‘now’ times public transportation was more

accessible back then and I recall days, months, years of taking the

bus to work (even two of them at one point in time).

Owning my own vehicle allowed me more independence with the

time schedule throughout the years; however, since I don’t drive

long distances nor every day the expense of owning a car may

outweigh the cost of public transportation.

I’ve given thought to leasing a vehicle which would cut my

yearly vehicle budget.

Recently I learned the town provides a service of a mini-bus

to local stores and for a $10.00 fee to cover the price of gas

a volunteer will drive you to out-of-town doctor’s visits.

I’m still pondering thoughts and options for upcoming year 2022.

Today’s question:

When it comes to movies, do you prefer watching them in the comfort of your

own home, or would you rather go to a theater?

Answer:

The days of sitting through a movie in a dark theater seated wherever I could

find an empty seat are behind me.

High ticket prices, truly overpriced snacks and rude people all played a part in

my decision years ago to watch movies at home.

The couch is way more comfortable and nobody is going to kick the back thus

no possibility of a feud between absolute strangers.

It’s also possible to rent a movie on cable for a period of time with the ability

to stop it and restart from point left off.

Overall to remain in a safe environment and spend far less cash is way more

feasible and comfortable.
