Truthful Tuesday: August 24th 2021

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 questions: post-election

Question: Have the results of the US Presidential election left you feeling relieved,

apprehensive, hopeful or some other emotion?

Answer: apprehensive as I read the possibilities that ‘may’ lie ahead for citizens.

Question: Have you been surprised at all by the emotions and reactions of others

regarding the results?

Answer: No, people form their own opinions and if you don’t agree with

them then best you ‘walk on eggshells’ and refrain from the topic of politics.
