You have to own a car, in the USA. Own it or lease it, you MUST have one to survive here. This excludes a few cases, but to have a full experience, you have to own a car. Many stores are miles away. The bus system is $1.50 and very slow. It travels to few places.
I blew the fuel pump, or the relay at least on my car. I have to fix it myself or have it fixed by a mechanic. These dudes charge $50 an hour, and often, they are wrong. They will sometimes screw your car up worse than the the original problem.
Oh well, at least I won’t have to worry about it being stolen for a while!
I wish those kids would STOP with the fireworks! I hope they run out of them soon.
