I was surfing the net last night – I couldn’t sleep. I came across this and thought it was freaking hilarious! People call mom’s mini mobile a Tonka Toy anyway. I think it would be so funny for dad to fix it up like this picture.
She takes a lot of flack for having a little Smart car but my mom absolutely loves it! She calls it her scooter with doors – snort.
This picture below is what moms Smart car looks like. Nice huh? Snort. I call it the pig mobile.
Do you want to hear something funny about moms car? One time, she went through the drive thru at a local restaurant. There was a car in front of her with an older guy. He kept looking at mom in her itty bitty car and laughing. When she got to the window to pay, the cashier was laughing. She told mom that the nice guy that was in front of her had paid for her breakfast. The cashier told mom the guy said quote “That lady can’t afford to buy a whole car so she probably can’t afford to pay for breakfast”. Mom just laughed.
And, with mom having the only car in this color like this in the area, everyone spots mom around town. There’s absolutely no way she can do anything in secret – people see her. People at moms worky place really pick on her about it. You know the typical things:
Where do you get tires for that lawn more? Home Depot?
You better tie it down, the wind is picking up.
What does it have – a lawn mower engine?
They call it a Smart car because golf cart was already taken.
You get the gest. Mom just takes it in stride. Who’s laughing the hardest when she fills up at the gas station once a month for ONLY $25.00? HA HA
And then you have the people that think it’s absolutely hilarious to have a car this small. They pass her waving on the streets, giving her the thumbs up, and talking to her whenever she and dad get out of it. They think it’s a hoot!
It may be only three cylinders, but once it gets going – it goes!
