One fine Saturday Dan was late to work. Of course we couldn't call his house to find out what was up 'cuz he didn't have a phone. So, we went about our work and waited.
Several hours after Dan was due to arrive at work he walks into the shop looking a little frazzled.
"Where ya been?"
"I had car trouble."
Knowing that about every 2 weeks he had a flat tire which he replaced with yet another $20 retread, I didn't probe further.
"Well we're glad you are okay."
"Did you know that you have to change the oil in a car?"
"My car caught on fire. When I got it into the shop the guy said it was because I didn't have any oil in the car. He wanted to know how long it had been since I had checked or changed the oil."
You know I had to ask.
"So you have never checked or changed the oil in your car?"
"How long have you owned the car?"
"I'm sorry, let me get this straight. You have had the car for 1o years and never changed the oil? Never, ever?"
"No one ever told me you had to do that...."
Apparently a Chrysler can run for 10 years on the same oil if there is an idiot behind the wheel.
