I gave up because I didn’t need to take the bus. I thought I might accomplish this goal because I had jury duty, which would have required a bus ride part of the way. Turns out my dad offered to drive, either because he picked up that I was uneasy or because he wasn’t comfortable about me taking the bus. (To be fair, the city that the court I was assigned to isn’t the best area either)
I know there’s nothing wrong with it and I use another form of public transit during the work week, as well as the occasional weekend. But I have yet to have had to take the bus.
