Problems arise when you hit a nail in the road on your cruise in your Bentley. Having declined the spare tire to save a few bucks at the dealership and declining the roadside assistance on your insurance policy, you are now left stranded in the middle of nowhere so now what?
So should you hitch a ride from the next nice guy to pass by or just huff it for 25 miles to the nearest tire store and hope for a ride back? Also, the nearest phone is at the very least 20 mile away since you were out cruising your M5 on the open road with out a care in the world.
You reach into your the pocket of your Gucci shorts only and whip out your fancy iPhone 5 that you purchased from your local tech friend before it was even released. Having spent hours on your favorite iPhone app, Fruit Ninjas, your realize your battery is completely zonked. Not to mention you have no signal because you decided to save a buck by going with AT&T as your carrier.
So you push your thumb out into the air and begin your 20 mile hike to the closest phone booth. Couple cars pass by a BMW, then a Buick, Ferrari and a Chevrolet. Not two minutes into your walk a car comes to an ear piercing stop just inches from your leg. As you spin and look at the driver of the Aston Martin, you see the craziest old man you have ever set eyes on. He is grinning from ear to ear and if he had three teeth you would be shocked.
“I see you are in need of a tire” he said in the nuttiest English accent you have ever heard. “How did you know” you reply.
The trunk pops opened as the wild man says “Those tires are $400 a piece” When you walk to peer into the trunk you are amazed to see the exact tire size on the perfect rim to fit your needs.
Is it odd that this crazy old guy has the very tire size and rim that you happen to need at this exact moment on this exact stretch of highway? And for $400 which happens to be the very amount you carry in your man purse on a day in day out basis? You whip out your wallet and throw the cash into his greasy palms as you spout “I’ll give you an extra hundred dollars if you change it too” As quickly as he had arrived the old guy leaves you in a dusty cloud of dirt and all you can hear as he disappears from sight “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!”
