For Nug and crew
To delve deeply
into things affecting
The cost is riz
the fun is gone
memories of road trips
trips to the "states"
around, about and such
but things now cost
too ****ing much!
The Nuggler clan drives an old econoheap, well past it's prime, just like the Nuggler clan, and
the feeling of someone having a secure hold on my wallet and me nackers both at the same time is starting to become, well, less of a treat.
So we are thinking, not seriously yet, of divesting ourselves of this money pit in the driveway, and resorting to .......walking......bicycle......taxi......bus.... ....train.....and etc.
Firstly, we live a scant two blocks from a cash and carry wholesaler which also has kindly agreed to allow mere mortals to also buy from them as well as yer naberhood milk monger who charges you 2x, once for coming in, once for leaving. So I could WALK (ouch) there, and wheelie in a cart of some sort, all the groceries we would ever need.
A trip to "the mall" once a month for hair cuts, hair dooos, and a general outing could be accomplished via taxi........expensive, but not 75.00/month as in car insurance. One would not be able to dash out into the parking lot and drive home immediately, but rather have to WAIT (egad) for a cab. In the interim, whonose........one might strike up a conversation with perfect or imperfect strangers, and actually enjoy talking to someone other than the next door naybore
or the mormons or jehovas witnessess.........ya think?
I might miss chucking the canoe on the car, the fishin rods in same, and buggering off for a day, but really, I've done that. This year, to date, ain't wet a line yet. And don't miss it. This is probably why the "*******s that be" allow seniors and senioreetas to fish for free. They know you probably won't................Yep, Harpo, that there demographic study be payin off in spades........eyuk eyuk.
Once a month by bus instead of once a week by car to a neighbouring town to play music with me likewise old friends........Again........much less than the monthly insurance stipend. Hell, we might move there. Most of me ol buddies hereabouts is dead, in prison, or alcoholic, and no longer require my company.
Seriously folks, we could save a shipload of cash, but that's really not the point.
1. I don't enjoy driving any more, as much.
2. Hate winter driving and make any excuse not to do it......As in.....No ****ing way!! I ain't goin!!!
3. I absolutely resent the extreme hell out of being held hostage by insurance mongers and the oil cartels
That's about it. The autorant if you will. I know it could be done. Does the Nuggler clan have the nuts to do it???
Be forthcoming with your stories; do you or not own, how do you get around, and etc.
Might be an interesting thread..............meh.........maybe not..........
