As a senior who doesn’t drive, I recently had a frustrating experience that resulted in a life-transforming discovery.
Normally, I get around just fine by public transportation since most of my destinations are on a convenient bus line. This time, however, I had an appointment with a new doctor who wasn’t near a bus stop. Some seniors, when faced with this kind of problem, call a friend or relative to get a ride, but if no one is available, they must call a taxi, which was my situation that day.
I could bore you with all the details, but let’s just say that my taxi ride was overpriced and the service was unsatisfactory. To add insult to injury, I had to repeat the painful process to get home from the appointment.
