Re: What would you do???
$55/month? I wish I could get a deal like that. Can't get a car cheap like that. Now, that said there is still adrawback: With YOUR car you can drive wherever you want. Vacation, beach, ... I venture aguess that they would not be happy if you take the Vic and drive hundreds of miles while on vacation.
But still, the gas, tires, would most likely be worth it. We (County employee) have to use our own cell phones, but then we get $50/month as a cell phone allowance, which in my case works out because I put the phone onto a unlimited minutes plan and don't look back how many minutes I use. OTOH would the county not pay for part of my cell phone I doubt I'd use it much for official business, which would be interesting, since I do not have any landline in my house any more.
Everyone who is expected to use his cell phone for official business should in IHMO a) get a cell phone allowance from their place of work and b) put his cell phone on unlimited minutes plan or c) officially not have a cell phone.
