I’ve finally narrowed it down. The other day, as Ashlee and I were driving around town, I had an epiphany – the reason I so badly want to get rid of my car is because I hate driving. I don’t hate my car, per se, I just hate driving in general. I hate having to get gas. I hate having to pay insurance. I hate having to get repairs, and oil changes, and new brakes. I hate stopping at stoplights that don’t have motion sensors when half the other stoplights do. I hate idiotic drivers. I hate parking tickets.
I hate it all.
I know there are good reasons to get rid of my car, especially if one lives in a city that’s conducive to doing such a thing (and, by the way, KC isn’t one of those cities), but really, the main reason I want to get rid of mine is because I hate driving.
The good people over at Low Impact Living agree and tell you how you can go car-free, if you hate it as much as I do. Hopefully I can make this a reality by year’s end. If only we had Zip Cars in the area.
