Recently, my car broke down. It was the worst experience ever. It happened in the middle of the night, so I had to wait in the dark for a tow truck to get me. I only work a part time job, so I don’t have the funds it fix it immediately. Since I don’t have a car right now, I’ve been using public transportation to get back and forth to work. I take the bus which isn’t all that bad. It takes a lot longer to get to work although I use that time to catch up on school work or study in peace. The only times it bothers me is when it is freezing outside. The bus’s heating system is terrible. It does not do a good job of keeping the bus warm. Instead, it feels as freezing inside as it is outside. I’ve complained a few times. I’ve asked the driver to turn up the heat, however she said that it was already turned up, and it just isn’t strong. I’ve tried selecting seats that were closer to the vents, but that did not help much. Now, I try to choose a seat that is not next to a window. The windows are ice blocks! Occasionally I get lucky and catch a bus with a powerful HVAC system. On those days, I feel like I’ve won the lottery! However, that does not always happen. To be prepared for the worst possible case, I dress in many layers of thick clothing plus bring hand warmers. The hand warmers have made a world of a difference. Hopefully, I can save up enough money to repair the car and avoid this uncomfortable freezing weather altogether!
