Driving me crazy!

I am 23 years old. I do not have a licence or a car, for this reason people think I am strange. I am sick of people asking me if I've gotten around to getting my licence, in fact the more people nag me the more I resist. Family functions are the worst, it seems like almost all of my relatives ask the question. A lot of people seem to forget that I do actually have a learners permit and have done a fair ammount of driving. I beleive that I may be the worlds most experienced learner driver.

The thing is, that at this stage I don't feel I need a licence. I'll admit that it would be handy sometimes. I do however realise that I am going to have to get my licence very soon, as I am finishing uni in the middle of the year and am then hopefully getting a job. For some reason a lot of jobs require applicants to have a drivers licence.

As for a car... well all I can say is that cars are more trouble than they are worth, especially with all the extra expenses involved. Additionally the highly fluctuating price of petrol is something I don't want to contend with.

FYI my learners permit is about five and a half years old.
