7 reasons why I take the bus to work

It’s blowing wet snow in Lethbridge right now and temperatures are below freezing. It made me think about why I take public transit to work even though I have a car. Here are some reasons I came up with:

  1. I don’t have to clean off my windshield.
  2. I don’t have to wait for the vehicle to warm up.
  3. I don’t have to drive carefully.
  4. I don’t have to worry about other drivers or their driving habits.
  5. I can read or play solitaire (on my PDA).
  6. I get dropped off closer to the front doors than if I drove and parked.
  7. It’s cheaper.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
