The one with the pretty multi-colored arrows going hither and yon, and
the bar graphs that bounce up and down, and the numbers gyrating--the
video game that gives anal people an outlet to express their
anal-retentiveness out on public roadways as they impede the rest of the
world, all in an effort to eke out that next tenth of a miles-per-gallon
measurement or make the arrows change around as they dance, or not, on
the gas pedal.

Meanwhile, the rest of the world is behind them single file, unable to
pass, as the Prius goes 3mph because the driver wants to keep it going
on the battery "just a little bit longer" so he'll have something to
talk about on the Prius web board when he gets home.

Because that's his sole interaction with other people.

LOL!!  Gotcha now.  It makes me nervous and I do pay way too much
attention to it when it's on.  So does my DH.  I just want to drive
the car and let the car do whatever it does.

I'm with you on pretty much all that, Elmo. I'd better take my
temperature... I must have a fever. ;-)

Why not borrow money for a new car?

Posted by Cathy F. on March 24, 2007, 5:33 pm

'Cause it costs a whole lot less in the long run to pay cash up front,
rather than take out a loan - which involves interest.  But not everyone has
that much cash hanging around that can be spent all at once on a car (or
anything else).
