The framing of the question was a little insulting, honestly. But it’s probably mostly because I hear it constantly from every single coworker I work with. It’s up there with “when are you going to get your Master’s??” I’m not that upset about it, just kind of… “et tu, Tumblr?”
But actually though, it’s not a bad idea
to get your license as soon as you can? Even if you aren’t going to own
or use a car. In case there’s an emergency, it’d probably be good to
know how to drive. No harm in learning that early. Even better if your family can afford an additional car. (So, uh? Good job, first anon, it’ll probably serve you well.)
Personally, up to this point my job, my
school, everything I’ve needed to get to has been easily accessible by
public transportation. I’ve been bussing to classes for the last 6 years
and I loved it.
I can’t help but see cars as money drains on wheels. Gotta
pay for the car. Pay for the gas. Pay for the insurance. Pay for the
repairs. Compare that to the $30 I spend on a monthly bus pass.
Plus I can read, play Animal Crossing, cram homework, sleep for the entire commute. Feels to me like an unnecessary cost if you don’t have to do it.
…But now I have to! So. Now I’m getting it.
