I hate cars. Not because they are loud or polluting. But because they are so damn expensive and prone to breaking down. Ever since I was young cars have been the bane of both my families life and mine. In America you can't really live without a car unless you live somewhere like New York city or L.A.. Somewhere with fantastic and easy public transportation. But here's the secret for everyone who lives in big cities about us who don't: most places don't have good or sometimes any public transportation. And with everything being so spread out you need a car to get to a job so you can make money so you can buy a car, or groceries, or get medical treatment, etc. And cars are so horribly expensive, especially for people already living paycheck to paycheck. And god help you if you don't have good credit, which many who are living paycheck to paycheck don't. You can either try and save up money while your current car is holding out so you can get another crappy cheap car. Or go to a horrible used car salesman who is willing to give you a credit loan even with your bad credit so you can pay 30k over 20 years for a car that should normally cost 10k. And pray that car doesn't break down while your still paying it off.
I realize not everyone has this problem, but I certainly do and my family always has. Anyone else feel the same or had similar experiences?
