Here's the dilemma. I have rooms to rent which are half the price ($450 per month) of a certain university's dorms ($900 per month). I told my friend that my rooms are within "walking distance" to that same university. He was very happy with this offer, but then...
He checks Google Maps and realizes it will probably take half an hour to walk to the university from my place. He says I was lying when I said "walking distance". I said that a 30 minute walk is pretty easy to do and that using 1 hour a day for walking is doable. He is unconvinced, however.
The questions are:
a) Do you consider 30 minutes to be "walking distance"?
b) Do you believe using an hour per day for walking is worth saving 450 dollars per month for residence?
I'm in a crossroad here. I'm not sure if I'm wrong for thinking that 1 hour per day for walking is not horrible, or that he's crazy for not taking this offer. If it's the former, I might have to reduce the price to compensate, but I'd like some input first.
