Driving or taking a cab when we could easily take public transit (or walk)
Remember: no matter how lazy you feel after your six block cab ride, it could be worse. At least you’re not one of those suburbanites that circle the parking lot 500 times to find a spot by the front door so they don’t have to walk an extra 30ft.

It doesn’t matter that it’s been 31 years since the Bears won the Superbowl, 24 years since Ditka was “da coach,” 11 years since the White Sox won the World Series, and 18 years since Michael Jordan played for the Bulls -- all that matters is that it once happened, damn it.
