Junk car, but a valuable mind

My car’s dead.




What’s worse is I’ve only had it a couple of months. I bought it after my last car got totaled in an accident last year.

It was a good car while it lasted. It just didn’t last long.

First the water pump went. Got it fixed.

Then the head gasket started leaking.

Now it won’t stop overheating.

It’s not worth fixing. That’s what the mechanics tell me.

It’s been suggested to me that I call the fellow who sold it to me. Ought to give him a piece of my mind, they tell me.

Not going to do that. I don’t know if he knew the car was about to die or not. Doesn’t really matter. Wouldn’t change the fact that the car is dead.

And my mind is much too valuable to be given to someone who may or may not have sold me a lemon.
