Dependency


I hate living in the United States for this one particular reason - dependency on somebody for transportation! You cannot go to any place without your own car. We have been managing so far with one car, inspite of people warning that you will sooner or later need one each. Guess it is for these kinds of situations that you definitely need one of your own - when your own work is done, and you have browsed all the possible internet sites and are desperate to go home to cook for the evening or do some house work; and are stuck in the office waiting for the MR.

It is all the more tough for me, one who does not have any friends in the area where we live - despite the fact that all of them work in the same firm as mine (just my bad nature that nobody wants to be pals with me - I guess!) - and you have to ping each one and ask if he/she can give you a ride!

I hate these situations and I detest them when they keep coming again and again in my life! Why ME!!! I am going to get the car to work from 'morrow and pick the Mr. at my convinience. He would not mind even if he were to asked to stay in the office 24 hours - 365 days a year.....

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRr.........................

$$ Usha - I was really mad. I have a bad habit of getting impatient while waiting. I will keep counting even the microseconds.. and getting angrier by the nanosecond. Time I worked on my anger!

$$ Akka - Welcome to my blog :) ... What do you think ? I gave the Mr. such a blast yesterday, and the result - I got the car .. hee hee (Evil grin) - now he is at my mercy! :)

Hey there..

Guess u must have guessed from where I have landed here. :)

Anyways..

Luckily, in our part of the country, public transportation is pretty good..

A rarity in US...

Have heard a lot of stories about the transporation woes in US.

Seriously, India rocks!

Aiyyo paavam Rajesh :) Unga oorla Bus illaya? :D
I am yet to get my driver's license, but i've figured out the bus routes so I don't have to depend on him unless I have shopped too much :p

$ Tejas - You I know where you are landed and I have lived there myself for some months. The Mr. Says one should never visit NY or NJ the first time he/she lands in US - then he/she will never like any other place in the US, and I think that is just absolutely true!!

$$ Kumari - Once in a yellow moon (worse than blue moon), I have seen a bus called "Smart" - nobody ever uses it, and nobody even knows its timings ! You have buses there !! Cool! Ammam are you still with "you-know-what" ??

tejas said...

I do agree that one should never visit NY/NJ the first time.

But I think I don't like NY/NJ much.

People say that the actual US is outside Jersey City and New York.

I seriously dont get the feel of being in US here..

You and Mr. seem to compliment each other.why don't you try dropping him and ofcourse picking him up.He'll be the one to grrrind his teeth.I can bet on it.

Vidhya Rajesh said...

$$ Hip grandma - Welcome to my blog :) ... Yup - compliment would be too less a word for the Mr. and Me. We fit each other like a jigsaw puzzle :) ...
Hmph! he grind his teeth - no chance! I am too good for him - on the dot to drop and pick him up :)
