Happy Hump Day or Wacky Wednesday!
How do I blend a short piece on car maintenance and on growing old and
being a happy person? I will ‘wing it!’ Calling this maintenance is a bit of a
When asked about how to take care of your car to keep it running longer
and what to do “Under the Hood,” here are several random men’s answers.
These answers were found on an Advance Auto advertising poster.
Here’s Lucky Seven pieces of Advice on Cars:
1. Dan in Chicago says,
“Do it once right, or don’t bother.”
2. Cory in Boston says,
“The hands show you put in a day’s work.”
3. Alex in Tampa says,
“The fact that you’re elbow deep in grease shows your passion.”
4. Tony in Chicago says,
“Anybody can cut their lawn, but not everyone can work on their car.”
5. Felipe in Houston says,
“Show me your knuckles.
“That shows me something.”
6. Matt in Chicago says,
“I like the sense of accomplishment,
knowing I did it.”
7. Dave in Boston says,
“To clear your mind of the day,
you go to the garage.”
Our new slogan at the Advance Auto Distribution Center #23 is:
“Under the Hood,
On Top of the World.”
(We bought two more car repair parts chains. I like to buy the Yankee
Candle air fresheners and the cleaning products. I don’t repair my own
car, but I can certainly ‘fix it up on the inside!’ Smiles! Robin)
Here’s some funnies for the older people out there:
1. “I’m not 40 Something
I’m $39.95 Plus
Shipping and Handling!”
2. “I Don’t Perspire or Sweat Much,
I Just Have Short, Private
Vacations in the Tropics!”
3. “A Balanced Diet:
Chocolate in Both Hands. (Mostly women.)
A Burger Using Both Hands. (Mostly men.)”
The Last Funny of the Day for “Hump Day:”
“It was a small town and the patrolman was making his evening rounds.
As he was checking a Used Car Lot, he came upon two little old ladies,
sitting in a used car.
He stopped and politely asked the ladies why they were sitting there in
the car? Were they planning on stealing it?
“Heavens no, we bought it.”
The patrolman replied,
“Then why don’t you drive it away?”
The ladies giggled,
“We can’t drive.”
The reply to this was,
“Then, for Pete’s sake, why did you buy it?”
Wait for this… (off color response, appropriate for Hump Day, coming):
“We were told that if we bought a used car here
We’d get screwed… so we’re just waiting.”
This is the lasting message of the day. We don’t stop laughing because
we grow old. We grow old if we stop finding humor in things around us!
