Reasons To Reconsider Buying A Car
by R.D. Ronstad

It’s no accident that the word carnage has car in it. Or maybe it is.

There’s no such thing as radar love.

You never hear reports of "sidewalk rage."

Road signs are too bossy.

Sooner or later, someone will have to see the manager.

If you own a car...

Everything becomes personal, at least when you're in it.

One day you’ll find yourself talking to your car. It won’t be a good day.

If you don't own a car...

Your kids will never ask you to buy them a car, because they’ll never want to be seen driving you around.

With the money you save on gas, you can buy a gas station.

You can sit back and watch the Smiths fall further and further behind the Joneses.

You can own a TV the size of a garage.

If you can’t remember where you left your car keys and start wondering if your mind is going, the answer will be obvious.
