I LOVE ZIPCAR. That’s all I can think after joining their program and using the service for the first time today. It really is the missing piece in my mobility puzzle.
I’ll be honest: I went and looked at cars this past weekend. For the most part, I’ve been functioning perfectly fine without one. Maybe I should have written “grudgingly looked.” While I was a little excited at gaining some independence, I wasn’t looking forward to throwing $XXX.XX a month at a car payment, insurance, gas, and assorted maintenance.
To be exact, that extra chunk of change is nice for: going out, buying nice groceries, going out, buying Apple products, going out (haha okay I’ll stop), clothing, accessories, stuff for my apartment, my coffee addiction, books and magazines, frequent haircuts, phone bills, music, yoga classes, health insurance, a new bike, memberships to the High and the Botanical Garden…in other words, things I value so much more than automobile ownership. I don’t need a car, but the option of having one is appreciated. Then I remembered about ZipCar.
