Another reason to leave

One of the reasons I have stayed in Chicago is that I have been able to get around via mass transit. I have a car, but I like the fact that I do not have to use it.

For a while I was working in Hyde Park, and going to school out in the suburbs. So three times a week, I would have to go up through the Loop and out to the suburbs to get to class. It was a real drag. Then I graduated and got a job in the Loop, and I was able to get to and from work on the CTA.

But sometimes the CTA gets on my nerves. Today the Brown Line derailed near Belmont, so I had to get on the bus. A very slow, very crowded bus. The CTA just seems to be getting more unreliable.

Granted, it is difficult, if not impossible, to get around in most of Texas without a car. But if  one of my main reasons for staying is not working as well as it used to, then it is time to start thinking seriously about leaving.
