It's easier. You don't have to balance to prevent water from falling on your face. Just close your eyes.

Actually I get my hair wet & turn off the water while I scrub my head. Then I use the hand held shower to rinse off.

I face away from the water because I don't like the shampoo to run down into my eyes and face.

I want the water to hit my hair and most of my hair is on the back of my head, not on my face.

I thought it tasted just like meat. I have gastrointestinal issues, so this is a great alternative.

When I lived in the city, I'd take the bus if I didn't have a car or it was unavailable. I'd do the same in this small town if there were any, but the local gov't doesn't want to put money into it. We need it badly. If you don't have a car or a ride, you are screwed! Espacially, when very hot/cold!

I live in NYC, which has an extensive public transportation system. I do not need a car and using public transportation is better for the environment.

I live in the county and no buses available. I drive a car now, but in 3 months will turn 80 and want to stop driving. I will sell my car and pay people to take me to appts and vets etc. I have groceries and pet supplies delivered.

There are no buses in the country. If I lived in a big city, maybe I would.

Living in the country it's not an option. Sometimes ride the L in Chicago during family visits and we were on and off the subway in NYC last fall -- the only way to get around!
