When some people go in for surgery and discover that they can’t drive they talk about it like it’s the worst thing in the world. (They know full well that they get to drive in a month). I often run into these people while they have these conversations. Honestly I have trouble sympathizing with them. Since I’ll be able to drive never, whether I have surgery or not.
I can see why they wouldn’t want to lose their independence (temporarily) but it’s not like they’ll never be able to drive again. (Most of the time) …unless they’re too feeble.
I have never been able to drive in the first place and if things continue the way they are I won’t be able to do it ever. It looks really cool. It would be so nice to not have to bum rides off of people to go places. It’s a humbling thing. People talk about it like I’m missing out on something great…and it’s no fun to miss out… At least I have friends and family that can help out.
So my main question is: Why are these people complaining so much? In most situations it doesn’t affect the rest of their lives.
