Lessons learned from the hard knocks of cars!

1. If someone offers you a car for $100, realize that something that sounds too good to be true, is, and run screaming from the scene.
2. Cars are the spawn of Satan designed to suck your soul and will to live, if not your entire checkbook balance. I'm just saying.
3. Car repairs seem to be like Whinnie the Pooh, in that they are never satisfied or ended. They just ask "Is there anymore?' and take and take from your checking account.
4. At some point you just have to cut your losses and quit putting good money after bad. Walk away and never look back.
And that my friends is what I did yesterday. Some guy stopped by to see if I wanted to sell my Honda. He probably conned me into letting it go for a ridiculously low price, but something is more than nothing. And at least it is gone. No more do I have to look at it sitting in my driveway, mocking me for idiotically trying just one more repair to get it running. So long, farewell, and good luck to the next owner/sucker that sits behind the wheel.
