There are certain things in life that you can’t overlook for your own safety.
A lot of people in my youth would selectively use seat belts only on occasions.
I also remember hearing about the horror stories from people who were rejected from cars during horrible car accidents. It’s scary because there were several major car accidents in my community when I was in high school and there were multiple students who died as a result. In one of the cases two of the students were ejected from the car during the crash just because of their lack of seat belt use. It’s always a scary story to hear about, especially when it affects people who are in your close community. And when you think about it, it’s a scary and ridiculous thing to die over when a seatbelt doesn’t even cause that much money to produce. I feel the same way about carbon monoxide detectors inside of homes. If you’re using gas appliances you cannot afford to go without having a carbon monoxide detector or you can die. Whenever a gas appliance fails to fully combust the fuel running through it, it can result in carbon monoxide exposure in the home. Since carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, you’ll have no idea it’s in your ear unless you’re using a cheap carbon monoxide detector. That’s why you can’t afford to go without them. Imagine dying because you didn’t want to spend $10 on a small piece of plastic that could easily save your life. Those are the sorts of things and mistakes I don’t want to make in life.
