If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

Ha ha... You have to press buttons, like Regular or Premium, and the pump stops when your car fills up!

You see! I didn't know these things. I think it's best I stay off the roads!

Well at least you can more or less get away with that in England with trains and such. Here, if you don't have a car, you're more or less screwed, unless you'd like to utilize the inconsistencies of the bus system.

I regularly utilize the inconsistencies of the bus system, I waited 50 minutes for a bus one morning... ended up late for college.

See what I mean? That's what I'll end up doing, because even if I have my license, I'd rather pay $20 for an unlimited month-long bus pass than waste my money on gas driving to college. The English schooling thing totally mixes me up sometimes... College, university, all mean the same to me...

We don't have that at our petrol (gas) stations in the UK, David! No buttons, and you have to hold down a lever the whole time you're filling (unless you jam it down - I have a friend who always does that). But it does click and stop when the car is full.

From my experiences in America, most towns and small cities don't even have buses!

Exactly, it's a wise move. I'm not in your equivalent to college! I'm in the british equivalent, I'm 17, so I'm doing my two years before I go to University (or college as you call it)

Well actually, in America the difference between college and university is that universities offer more graduate programs than colleges, but both occur at the same time in your life. I'm going to get an applied science degree.

I thought that the word University in english, meant College in American! This is even more confusing. So how old are you? Are you going to College now?

I'm 17. I'm in high school right now, but next year I will finish my highschool requirements while in college as I work towards my degree. I don't have to pay for the first year either!

No, it's through the high school. The state government covers the cost until spring of 2009, then I have to pay the last half. I'm really excited to start!

Nope. The college is a 20 minute bus ride from my house. There's a bus stop not more than 20 meters from my front door!!! I like my city... Very Happy
