“My Old Jalopy Rant”

By Victoria Sawyer (Aka Chick V)

My car is super extra shitty.  I’ve had the beast for EIGHT YEARS!!  Yes, that would be from 24 to 32.  EIGHT YEARS!!

It sucks because it has MANUAL locks.  MANUAL windows.  It only has like 3 speeds on the windshield wipers.  Guys, I like to tell you a lot about how I’m suffering.  I really really am suffering.  My life is the WORST ever.  People who get in my car act like they’re getting into an antique because they’ve NEVER SEEN manual window cranks before.  PLUS the lousy cranks WORK BACKWARDS.  Meaning you have to crank FORWARD for the window to go down.  IT just feels wrong.  I hate those spoiled bastards with their windows who leap up at the touch of a button.  Or who can lower ALL THE WINDOWS at the same time and don’t have to hop into the back seat to crank down the back windows!

Those same assholes can lock all their doors with one click.  They can also UNLOCK all their doors with one click.  They don’t have to go around to each front door and unlock it and then reach inside and try to unlock each back door.  They can also CUSTOMIZE their rain experience with so many speeds on their wind shield wipers.  They don’t have to SUFFER  because they’re missing that in between speed that you ALWAYS want ALL THE TIME and so you have to click back and forth between 2 of the lame speeds you do have.

Those assholes can also adjust their seats with the touch of a button.  Technology has spoiled them for hardship.

Also there’s no such thing as MP3 hookups or anything cool like that in my Jalopy.  There’s no GPS, there’s no little screen telling you the name of the songs that are playing.  My car doesn’t tell me that someone is calling me.  Just to listen to new technology, i.e. my MP3’s I have to plug in this little device to my cigarette lighter that basically makes my MP3 player play over the radio.  It’s an FM TUNER!!  It’s old school.  And I do have a CD player.  No tape deck, we’re definitely classier than that. (Can I just tell you how SHITTY CD’s are?  They scratch at the drop of a hat! Literally a hat dropping could scratch them.  Bullshizzz)

The other thing is that my car is sort of a trash deposit area because I’ve ceased to give a shit about it.  It was used during our home construction (as in we built our own house, FO’REAL!) as our construction vehicle.  How many times did it carry lumber stuck up through the trunk, back seat and in between the 2 front seats?  How many times did it carry tools in its trunk?  How dirty do you think it got?

So…the old Jalopy is still kicking after all these years.  She’s only got 125K miles on her so inevitably she’ll be kicking for another FOUR goddamned years!! NO!!  And Mr. VS and I are too cheap to give her up and buy ourselves something nice even though we could totes afford it.

Let me just tell you…the kinds of suffering I endure, I just don’t know how I do it.  Somehow I do manage to get from point A to point B without dying in my old Jalopy.  She’s agreed to carry my fat ass wherever I want to go and with nary a complaint.  She hasn’t even given me much guff or fuss about it.  She’s a sweet old biddy.

I have however abused her.  She’s had some body work.  Just a little bit.  But it WASN’T All my fault! I swear it.

My poor old Jalopy who I am abusing on this blog and in person.  You should send me a donation to put toward the exploited, mistreated vehicle.  Also it would support me because I’m suffering so much.  I’m so embarrassed by my jalopy.  I’m unable to be as lazy as I want to be.  You guys need to really support my laziness.  Also my car just cannot carry all the shiz I want it to in its trunk.  It’s not big enough.  However, one luxury is that I do have a trunk popper opener inside the car.  That’s probably the best luxury I have.  I don’t even have cruise control, but I do have a trunk popper opener.

Angst Readers, if you love me, you’ll support my laziness.  I want to be like my cats and just lay around the house all day long, eating and playing. When I go home tonight I will yell at them to “GET A JOB!”  But they won’t listen or raise a paw to catch a mouse (at least not a real one).  They’ll just keep collecting unemployment from me and food stamps too.  I support these cats.  Therefore I need a new car.  It has to have good gas mileage though.  Also power everything to support my new laziness initiatives.  One of those wheel chair lifts would also be cool.  I don’t want to have to do any extra work.

In closing, in 4 more years I’m going to get the sweetest jalopy EVER.  It’s going to have technology that you bastards have NEVER EVEN HEARD OF!!  I’m even getting an in-seat toilet.  Now that’s true luxury.

Then finally, my suffering will be at an end.  And maybe I can convince my cats to get jobs and support me for a change.  Maybe my new car will be able to be driven by them or by robots. 

The future will be sweet my friends.

One response to “TFC’s 1st Anniversary Blog-Off Winner!

  1. Reblogged this on Angst and commented:
    Angst Readers: I have won a contest because I wrote a post about my old Jalopy, so check it out on Too Funny Chicks. The best part is that my old Jalopy died right after writing said post. So…please go read the post first (below) and THEN come back and read the rest of the story here:

    P.S. the sweetest thing about this post is that I wrote it a few weeks ago and LITERALLY 2 days after writing this, the Old Jalopy DIED!! I think maybe I cursed it with this post! Can you believe it?!!! So I was driving home from work and the Jalopy and I were traveling across an intersection when SUDDENLY and without WARNING of any kind, the Jalopy no longer was able to create forward motion. We were coasting together across a busy lane of traffic. We coasted right into park. The old Jalopy was making a terribly loud noise and no amount of pushing upon the pedals would create the forward motion so essential to Jalopys. Thank God we made it safely across the line of traffic whilst coasting.

    Thus we were dead in the water. I.E. We were dead on the road and the Tranny in the Jalopy had officially decided that it no longer desired to go on living. I had to call a tow truck. And when the estimate came back from the garage, it was no longer feasible (in a monetary way) to keep the Jalopy on life support. Mr. VS and I had to decide to pull the plug and buy a new car, thus invoking a car PAYMENT.

    CAR PAYMENTS are not thing you want to deal with. I had gone for so many years believing that cars are free or at least very close to free. And now suddenly I was looking online at cars for sale and realizing how Un-Free they are. They are extremely expensive. Mr. VS and I purchased a new vehicle. And thus our bank account is now smaller and we owe money during the month.

    However, there is a golden lining (P.S.S. Mr VS is sooo jealous cause he still has an old jalopy that has not died! It has more MILES than my jalopy had! HAHA!!). The golden lining is that I now am one of those assholes with the auto-locks-windows-moon roof- etc. I am spoiled rotten and no longer suffering. I EVEN HAVE so many settings on my wipers for my rain experience that I don’t even know what to do! I EVEN HAVE a windshield wiper for the back window! THE LUXURY!! I don’t even know what to do. I’m stunned. I’m so much of an asshole now, it’s not even funny. Mr. VS holds hate inside his heart for me since I get to drive this new shiny vehicle to work every single day.

    Truly my blog has the power of making all my dreams come true, if I complain enough. YEAH ANGST!! Also I am officially able to ALMOST be as lazy as I want to be. My dreams are truly coming true.
