18159Carfree for three years.
- Aug 31, 2007Hi all,
I'm new to this group, so hullo!
I'm just wondering whether anyone else on this list has decided to go
COMPLETELY carfree? I did so, three years ago -- I haven't stepped
foot in a car since. It makes for some interesting conversations,
mainly, and a little bit of awkwardness around friends who offer me
lifts sometimes (I ride or walk or catch buses, and never have any
trouble getting anywhere). It 'limits' what I can do and where I can
go, or so I'm told: I find I can do everything that I want.
The biggest issue I am facing is this: I've just got a new job, in a
rather conservative IT company, and I know they're going to ask me to
go in a car one of these days, and I just don't know how to broach the
subject! I just get the impression that they'll think me utterly
weird, and make things difficult. Has anyone had any experience with
this sort of thing?
Thanks! And hurrah to no-cars! :-)
