I overheard a bus driver on a special route transporting students between campuses and exam venues, ask, “why would you take a taxi when there’s a free bus?
And she had a point. It’s good to feel you’re getting a bargain, and students can often do with keeping some money in their pocket.
But what about when money isn’t the issue? What about when other factors come into play?
How about when perhaps the choice you make is about saving time, or being efficient? When sometimes not doing something that’s expected is the right thing to do?
When is it ok not to follow the crowd? When is it ok to be different?
Dare I say that there’s always a possibility that decisions and choices aren’t only about cost, or the head, or being sensible? And that just occasionally it’s about convenience, the heart, and doing what feels right?
