    Completely absurd, but I don't know what else to expect from the dead *****. ^^
    She never said that. Do some research before posting stupid comments. The same goes for all the morons who liked your comment.

    Great joke - calling someone a dead ***** in false pretence. It would be a joke if the context was true or exaggerated.

    But the thing is, in places like central London it is WAY faster to use buses and trains to get to places. While people in their cars are sitting in traffic for 20 minutes, or busy trying to find a parking spot for oxford street (and there NEVER is one, and if you do find one you need a permit ), you've already gone to Oxford street and finished your shopping

    maybe at the time it wasn't so bad

    My comment was never meant to be taken seriously. Sorry if you took it that way.

    Wouldn't use a car for major inner city travel. But I have to say despite having no issue with public transport, once you are driving it gives so much freedom you almost didn't realise you needed until you have it.

    this is a stupid quote. I have a driving license, and I can afford a car but I don't want to own one simply because why not using transport ? And you can't even find a parking in Paris -.- I'm 20 tho

    Is this true in your view? That is a Margaret Thatcher quote by the way from 1986.

    I have never owned a car, I am 25. I don't own a car because I find public transport is fine and I am saving up all of my money for my business and investments.
    my bf is basically 25 and found himself on a bus as hecouldnt drive his car due to a loose bit of bone in his ankle so couldnt drive.
    his not a failure and is doing incredibly well for himself in the military
    i dont agree with her statement

    If a person wants a car, no issue. If a person travels by public transport, no issue.

    If a man can't afford a car, no issue. If a man doesn't want a car because it's less environmentally friendly, no issue. If a man sees more to life than how impressive his automobile looks to others, no issue.

    No one is a failure in life, everyone has faced some kind of difficulty. Failure to one is success to another. Never under estimate anyone.

    Im nearly 22, Ive been taking driving lessons for over a year, already feeling like a failure and cant wait to get on the road. I have my driving test in 3 weeks.

    Ive seen 26 year olds without a car and happy without one. Some people are different I guess.
