Okay, so I need to rant and ranting on facebook would be a bad idea because it could start drama so I am going to rant about this in my blog because nobody is going to read it that I actually know.
So. Neither my boyfriend or I have a car. He has a permit and I have an ID, he was learning how to drive but after forty minutes total his sister refused to teach him any more in the parking lot she wanted him to drive on the road and he wasn’t comfortable with that so he doesn’t know how to drive really because there was nobody else who would help him learn.
I never learned because it freaked me out and I drove twice in my life and almost crashed the car and I did crash the Doom buggy thing and almost died in a ravine. Which nobody knows about because we got out and were okay but still.
Anyways, so my boyfriend is expected to get a job in Corning the city closest to where we live and he is expected to walk there and work and then walk home because he has no rides because the person who was giving him rides is now refusing to give anyone rides anywhere.
It is a four hour walk from our town to Corning on average. I googled it. And that’s from our town not our exact location which is further away than that.
So lets say he gets job in Corning. Eight-ten hour shifts five days a week.
A four hour walk there, eight to ten hour shift and a four hour walk back. That’s sixteen to eighteen hours out of a twenty four hour day. That gives him…. Eight hours to eat, sleep, and do EVERYTHING ELSE that he has to do and get ready for work the next morning to walk four hours there.
And doing that five days a week that is 40 hours of walking and if he is working a 32-40 hour week he would be walking more or just as many hours that he would be working.
So from the bottom of my heart, fuck that. Fuck you (the person who thinks that this is logical.) And fuck your idiotic way of thinking (the person who can normalize anything they say or think even when they’re wrong and if they are wrong and are proven wrong they get pissed and walk away and won’t talk to you for days except in a condescending pissed off tone.)
Sorry for ranting but I am really upset about this like I am livid.
