So you want to go out for supper, either to the pub or to your friends, you automatically just order a taxi for when you wish to come; or an Uber if you are in the city.
Oh by joe, that is a nice luxury!
In the countryside, admittedly you can usually walk to your nearest pub and so the threat of the drive is not always the case, but for us, where we live now; someone has to drive. Someone can only have one drink and someone always gets tired before the other.
Now is this an issue? or is the price of the taxi an issue?
If we got a taxi from us, for about 20 miles radius, it would cost us near enough £40 to get home… £40, that is totally worth not drinking for!
Obviously neither of us are alcoholics and can easily go without a drink, but a nice drink with the meal, or 3 can be rather nice on a Friday. This also results in our date nights either being at home, or one drinking… as you can expect.
I think that it is a good method of breaking you into not having to drink when you go for supper… that said, I am reluctant to be the one not drinking sometimes. I am just too into my Rhubarb G&Ts!!
If you live in the countryside, how do you manage the not drinking for one of you task? Do you rope in a child to do the driving? or do you pay for taxi…
However, needless to say, this issue is not enough to encourage or force me to move to the city… nope, I am very much enjoying my coin flipping to find out if I get to have a G&T or not…
What are your taxi issues?!
