To Drive or not to Drive!!!!!!!!

Postby Miss. Ladybird » Sun Feb 20, 2005 8:27 pm

Last week, I was waiting for the bus after work and suddenly a friend told me that it had already left. I was shocked because I wasn't late. Well ….. I called my brother and father so one of them can come and take me.

This situation "RIMINEDED" me about an important thing that I haven't used – actually come close to -since I was 17.
Cars……….I am a "COWARD" when it comes to driving. :(
My father tried to teach me how to drive before but it didn't work with me.

It's strange that I am a very bold person and I am too afraid to drive a car.
Any advice?! I really need it.
:cry: :( :?

Many people are afraid of driving.

Did you have, however, any bad experiences concerning cars?

Have you ever tried driving a car? If not, I highly encourage you to try! I'm sure you'll like it ;)

Yes, I had a car accident once. I am still afraid of cars since that time. my family must drive at the speed of 45 or they know that I will feel uncomfortable. :?
I remember that I cried once. :(

I also lost one of my relatives in a car accident. :cry:

Driving is very practical : you can drive where and when you want. [Like mobile : you can phone where and when you want. but is it a good thing ?]

Driving is not especially complicated (I have got my driving licence two weeks ago :P ). There are just some people, like me :mrgreen: , who need more time to learn driving.

Just, don't drive too much, don't waste. The cars are one great cause to the pollution and to accidents (if you drive too fast). Be conscious about the nature.

If you want not to miss the bus or the train, go 5 minutes before the bus comes.

Miss. Ladybird, now I understand why you dread driving. It's completely understandable. But you should try to drive a car. Just try.

Congrats. :D

I do this all the time. And I was waiting for it 10 min. before the regular time.

Maybe it was my "WAKE UP CALL" to learn driving :lol: :mrgreen:

I think you should always encourage yourself to drive.
Try it and you'll get used of it
This makes independent in driving ,simply you don't depend on the bus,your father or brother's car.( ofcourse you should buy a car)

Come on don't be pessimist and learn more in driving.
Let's all of us congrate you on that specially when buying a new car,you are going to feel happy.
