I've learned how to drive from a driving school 5 years ago. At first, I used to drive on our way to my office 3 times a week until I got so lazy to drive that I no longer do it regularly. Reason, hubby is already there to drive most of the time and it's so convenient to just seat back and look outside the window. I only drive when hubby is away (just to go to the grocery or nearby malls) or like in this case, he got sick and I need to bring him to the ER.
A piece of unsolicited advice to my lady friends, given the chance, we must really learn how to drive. The first route to take on is the nearest hospital so that we can bring loved ones when needed. Also, it would help to locate the nearest drugstore in case the one that they have in the hospital is closed or doesn't have the medicine that you need.
Then, next route to learn should be the Church, followed by the grocery, and the nearby mall for convenience.
Of course, you can just try calling a cab. But how convenient that can be to wait for them and at the same time, deal with them? If you have even just 1 car, why not learn how to drive? For me, it's like a bicycle that you instinctively know how to use no matter how long you haven't driven it. I just did!
P.S. As of this writing, hubby is not yet fully okay... I hope he would feel better soon. I'm not so happy driving on my own. It was just short distances like 15-20 minutes, but I'm not liking it. Maybe, driving is not just my thing. So, this skill is just usefuI when I am left with no choice but to do so!
