    A true car story

    There is good and bad to this story. you must sort it out and decide what you think is good and what you think is the bad.
    Story, Last thursday..............
    Called to do a day long job at a residential dwelling.I did some work there about a week ago but today as I understood it I needed to stud up some holes in one wall where a tv screen, several inset cabinets, and a door with jamb had been set in. After studding up, I needed to cover with 3/4" plywood as a new screen was to arrive that day weighing 350 lbs. They needed the wall to be secure as they would be screwing the 107" screen to the now flat, solid wall.
    Armed with 2-3/4" sheets of ply and 12 studs I had earlier jointed I needed to get close to the garage door and the power so I had to have them move some of the cars in the 30 yard long drive way.
    Okay he said. First one out, a lady, moved the big Lexis SUV, then he came out and moved the Mercedes station wagon and the ............

    There was room now forme to back my truck into the driveway near the power source and the steps to the second floor. Upon entering the garage I noticed this little beauty.

    While admiring it he said he had to borrow it from a friend. I needed to know more and the reason behind the borrowing.
    I couldn't let it go so I said "Why did you have to borrow it "?
    Take a guess as to the response, you will never get it in a hundred tries.

    Let's see, he was going to take the M/B SL in for service? Or he was trading it in for a newer model and the new one was yet to be built.

    Sounds like a win-win situation. The home owner is successful and is enjoying his wealth. You got a job to do, and didn't loose any money on the job. The bad part is that the Jag isn't an XKE.

    The Friend was going to sell it and he had to save the guy from his poor decision.

    Let's see... think about ludicrous reasons that Veronica (from Archie) would use...

    ... had to borrow it for his kid's senior prom

    ... had to borrow it so that he wouldn't drive his own car in the winter.

    ... had to borrow it to impress a client/boss/relative

    ... had to borrow it to take on vacation, to tow behind the RV

    ... had to borrow it so that it was unavailable -- I'd heard that "joe snob" who I don't like -- also wanted to borrow it.

    ... had to borrow it for a job interview

    ... had to borrow it because the local home ownership covenant requires (a) minimum 3 cars or (b) minimum car value of $100,000 in the driveway at all times.

    ... for carbon credits

    ... for my daughters sweet sixteen party.

    enuf already!

    Oooo, I like that one. Although, "taxman" could also be; wife, girlfriend, ex-wife, son, true owner,...

    Because he made that car look good!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
