1. When commuting to work I won’t use my car
It doesn’t matter how late I’m running or ill prepared for the day I am for the day, no car. Even if I have a midday appointment, like the dentist I’ll stick with public transit or my bike.
2. My commuting choice can’t negatively impact those around me
Just cause I ‘m not driving doesn’t mean I get to be late to dinner, skip meetings or be grouchy in the morning.
3. I won’t force my commuting habit on others
Specifically my 4 year old daughter who I take to preschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I don’t have a great plan here yet... If she is game and the weather is nice we will try to take the bus, but I’m not going to force this on her. On preschool days I have the option to drive a car, for her. Basically we need to see how this goes.
4. When riding public transit I’ll use the extra time to learnA sub rule here is that if anyone engages me in conversation while on the bus I am obligated to reciprocate and learn as much about them as possible. Otherwise I plan to do some reading and writing while on the bus. No headphones for me.
That’s the rules I’m keeping. Any I missed?
