1 car household?

odd thought of the day

reading on Yahoo that to save money, become a 1 car family. that's the short version.

are these people for real?

i go into work early. like most of you are probably still sleeping. no buses this time of day. which also means i get off work at a different time then most people.  I'm not walking or biking 5+ miles in the dark. it's nutty enough in a car. same with coming home. between the heat and people out on their lunches, it's no safer. this would be a good idea if you lived in a place with 24 hour bus or subway service. most people don't.
the other driver in the house goes into work a regular 8-5 job. but, takes a child to daycare. it's over 10 miles.  again, this isn't a smart idea. this is Florida. it's hot and humid most of the year.

this is why i always say it's easy to tell people how to do something; actually doing it is another story.
