“There is something about yourself that you don’t know. Something that you will deny even exists, until it’s too late to do anything about it. It’s the only reason you get up in the morning. The only reason you suffer the shitty puss, the blood, the sweat and the tears. This is because you want people to know how good, attractive, generous, funny, wild and clever you really are. Fear or revere me, but please, think I’m special. We share an addiction. We’re approval junkies. We’re all in it for the slap on the back and the gold watch. The hip-hip-hoo-fuckin’ rah. Look at the clever boy with the badge, polishing his trophy. Shine on you crazy diamond, because we’re just monkeys wrapped in suits, begging for the approval of others.”—Jake Green, Revolver
Here’s some advice for you people planning a trip or just a drive up the street. I deal with these scenarios on a daily basis and there’s nothing more frustrating to speak to someone who failed to do the following. There’s no reason why an adult who drove themselves shouldn’t know where they are located. Do yourself a favor and follow these steps:
1.) Don’t take your Pinto anywhere unless its up the street and even that seems risky so just don’t take it out all.
2.) If you’re planning a trip, how about checking your vehicle and covering all your bases. This includes checking oil, engine, tires and anything else that may potentially disable the vehicle. There’s no reason why you should be shocked when your engine breaks down, in the middle of nowhere because you decided to drive your vehicle to Vegas knowing it was on its last life line.
3.) If you’re planning a road trip and your vehicle is a piece crap (sorry no offense to anyone out there) how about just renting a newer one and save yourself the stress. Or just FLY!
4.) Once you’re on the road, pay attention to the road you’re on and the streets you’ve passed. In case you break down and need roadside assistance, it helps to give the towing company the right location plus they’ll get out to you sooner. Who wants to be stranded in an unknown location, specially at night for hours because you failed to pay attention.
5.) PLEASE! PLEASE always have a plan B. There is no reason why one should be stranded with no vehicle or money to stay at a hotel because once again you failed to do your homework. Come on people let’s use our brains and plan ahead.
