~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
SIGNS YOU BOUGHT A LEMON OF A CAR . . .
As you leave the used car lot, you see the owner rush out with a gigantic smile and high-five the salesman.
You notice that the car phone they threw in "for free" has a direct line to Moes's Towing Company.
The booster cables are not in the trunk but are permanently soldered to the battery.
The hood has been equipped with a push-button device for quick and easy opening.
The "Purchased From" sticker at the bottom of the rear license plate has been removed.
You get a "Good Luck" card from the previous owner.
As you drive up to a service station for gas, the mechanic opens the big door and waves you in.
When you leave for work the next morning, you notice a tow truck parked about a block from your driveway. As you go by, it silently falls in behind you.
The little "Service Engine" warning signal in the dashboard comes on and reads "Me Again."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A little girl and her grandmother approached the checkout counter in a super-market. The man ahead of them was of giant proportions -- so much so that the girl couldn't take her eyes off him. As the man paid his bill, his pager began to beep. The little girl held her grandmother's had tighter and said, "Watch out, Grandma, I think he's going to back up!"
