I’m 31 years old, and I don’t know how to drive. Not just ‘drive well’. At all. Not one bit. If you sat me in the driver’s seat of a car and said, ‘Go!’ I’d stare at you like a cactus brought to life being quizzed about differential calculus. This ignorance has been a) a product of not wanting to contribute to the profits of the car industry or the emissions exacerbating global warming, b) a privilege afforded by living in a city with a well-functioning public transport system and cycle-able distances, and c) a real fucking ballache and burden for my more car-proficient friends on the occasion that we’ve gone on road trips. Despite the occasional internal nagging about the practicality of doing so, I don’t really ever plan on learning how to drive. After the Fall, when we’ve devolved into a Fury Road-esque post-climate collapse hellscape, I’ll just buddy up with some half-mad ravager who retains her driving skills instead.
If I’ve survived at all.
Which, let’s be honest, is not likely.
So therefore: Why worry?!
And thus is the logical loop closed perfectly.
On that note!
