fall away friends

It's enlightening, not having a car. My supervisor just tried riding the bus for a week to see how the less fortunate live. He's learned a lot. But once he gets home, he still has a car. He doesn't have to grocery shop and run errands on the bus. The one thing that he hasn't been exposed to is how lonely life can get without a car. Friends visit at the beginning but they slowly fall away little by little. It's heartbreaking but only so much can be done. After a friend cancels five or six times... well what can you do. Out of sight out of mind I guess. It sucks to feel like you're being taken forgranted. I've often bragged that i have amazing friendships and I'm not so sure anymore. Friendship is a two way street and I don't have a car. ..
