I don’t have a car but the item I want is pick up only!

When I finally got my driver’s license at 19, I was not given a car like most of my friends. It’s not cos my parents couldn’t afford to buy me one, it was cos I couldn’t afford to buy me one. Sure, I could afford the actual car – but the rest of the costs? No way! Petrol, insurance, maintenence, it was out of the question for me to have a car. Plus, we lived right by a major train station in Perth and near all the best bus routes. Instead, I car shared with my dad. I got Fat Donna (the name of my blue Honda CRV) Wednesdays and Saturdays (Wednesday was for sewing group, I was not lugging my 10kg sewing machine to Dalkeith) and if I drove dad to work, could normally have it any other day I needed it. My wonderful first car, Fat Donna.
