Here is the deal. I don't drive and no buses come near me so I'm hoping that there is someone else who is planning to go to the Minnesota show that I could go with. I live in Oakdale, a suburb of St. Paul. I would of course be willing to help pay for gas. Please let me know. Thanks.

I tried to get my license and really freaked out bad and got very scared and nervous and barely drove 10 feet. Not sure why I had that type of reaction. I'm just fine as a passenger. Guess it's a lot different when you're the driver.

It will cost some money but I would just call a cab to get you there and back.

A cab is like $30 1 way which is more than the cost of a ticket.

If you HAVE the money, the cost of the cab shouldn't stop you from going to the show if you want to see the show badly enough. If the show was in your neighbor's house but cost $90 to get in, would you go? If the answer is yes, pay for a cab.

The hypothetical neighbor in this scenario is a dick.

But the logic is sound, Fonzy. So, what he said.

Not trying to be funny, but you might want to see a therapist about that. There's probably some underlying issue there, and if you don't resolve it, its only going to compound itself as you get older, and you'll be 45 looking for rides.

Yes, cabs can be expensive but it's usually unavoidable when you don't drive. You're gonna need them sometimes to get places.

Also, I agree with what Derelict said. You should seriously look into the phobia you have about driving. It'll become a pain in the ass for you and maybe others in your life as well, if you always gotta rely on some other means of transportation to get you somewhere. Not driving because you can't afford a car is one thing but not driving because of some fear you have is a serious issue.

Oh, I did see a therapist about it and nothing they did was able to help it at all.

Also, I find it hard to believe that there's NO ONE on here from St. Paul who drives and is planning to go to the show. Unless there is someone who just doesn't want to help me.

Not that hard to believe really..Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think anyone from Dallas posts here, and I believe Dallas has a bigger population than St. Paul.

This... trust me I would totally drive if I could... it blows hard core having to always rely on others.

Fonzie, how long have you been a member on this board? A year and a half now which is the same as me. You should know by now weather there are any regular posters on this board who live in your area.

Also, even if there is a board member from your area who's going why do they or should they have to help you out at all? It's not their responsibility to get you to a show. If you buy a ticket to see a band you should have a means of trasportation already worked out if you don't drive.

Don't go saying stuff like "someone doesn't want to help me" and put the blame on someone else as to why you can't get to a show.

My post is still the most relevant and useful one in this thread I think, yet apparently Fonz didn't even consider it.

Wait, you already bought the ticket with no transport plan?

He did. He just did it when Sanitarium78 suggested it five posts before yours. You just justified it as a option a little more.

Not driving is fine if you live in the city (and thus can lean on public transportation) - but if you live in the suburbs or even more rural areas, you really shouldn't be expecting to get by without a driver's license once you're an adult.

I don't live in the city. I don't even live in the suburbs. Still don't need to drive.

It's different here though.

Different in Europe - if youre not in a city, gotta be able to drive here.

If you're not paying for a car, insurance, registration, gas and maintenance, suck it up and drop $60

You're thinking of nerds. The internet, and indeed going to a show, is too close to social interaction for a hermit. It's a replacement for it for nerds ;)
