A sign from above

I am meeting a guy in a parking lot in an unfamiliar area to buy a used car. And I just looked up and noticed this:

Could it be a sign from above??

I always have my conceal carry on me when making a transaction with someone I have never met and pick a busy area like a McDonalds parking lot to meet them.

So far (knock on wood), I have met some pretty cool guys and the sales have gone very smooth.

Oh man, you don’t know how right you almost were...several times over the last half hour.

I bought a 2000 Acura Integra w/ manual trans (for wife to fart around in), and I knew it was a small car and figured it would be a cramped drive for someone whose 6’8” like me, but crap on a cracker, I just nearly didn’t make it home in that thing!!

The drive was only 30 min, but it was thru big city streets and street lights and corners, and I’m here to tell you, when you can barely cram yourself into a car’s drivers seat, it is a mistake to them try to drive that car for 30 minutes thru town and expect to be safe and unharmed doing it!!

I swear on all that is holy, I cannot smoothly release the clutch without opening the door to allow my knee to get past the steering wheel. And speaking of my knee, when that leg is not working the clutch and at rest, that knee sticks up into my line of sight and blocks some of my rearward vision from the drivers door mirror!

And if all that wasn’t bad enough, there is not a single cup holder in reach of the driver’s seat!! So I had to do all the things I just described doing WHILE HOLDING MY BEER with my left hand!!!!!

Folks, I don’t often admit I have erred on something, but I think I may have just purchased a car which I won’t be able use...good thing it’s as destined for the ole lady’s errands anyway. Otherwise I do believe I’d be pushing that death trap into the lake TONIGHT!!

Late one night, a burglar broke into a house that he thought was empty. He tip-toed through the living room but suddenly he froze in his tracks when he heard a loud voice say: "Jesus is watching you!"

Silence returned to the house, so the burglar crept forward again. "Jesus is watching you," the voice boomed again. The burglar stopped dead again. He was frightened. Frantically, he looked all around. In a dark corner, he spotted a bird cage and in the cage was a parrot.

He asked the parrot: "Was that you who said Jesus is watching me?"

"Yes", said the parrot.

The burglar breathed a sigh of relief, then he asked the parrot: "What's your name?"

"Clarence," said the bird.

"That's a dumb name for a parrot," sneered the burglar. "What idiot named you Clarence?"

The parrot says, "The same idiot who named the Rottweiller Jesus."

But I still want to know why he's methodically clapping out the beat to what appears to be the most boring song or dance routine anyone has ever suffered through...and why you chose to post a meme of it in my thread...and why I came to in a pool of my own sick this morning...

Oh well, some questions are just better left unanswered I guess...

Look at it this way - this saves your Challenger from being filled up with the no-name El Cheapo gas that you'd never buy...but only under multiple inquiries you'd find out what actually took place.

Plus, you won't have to adjust the seat. The Integra models were based off the Civic - this was the era before Japanese brands kept growing. Look at the 2010+ models vs. the earlier years...today's smallest models rival what used to be the largest models of the earlier years.

You are nothing if not an eternal optimist, aren't you @Hal H ?!?

You sound like someone who's never known the sting of public shame associated with holding up a line of cars behind you at a red-to-green traffic light so you can restart your stalled out Integra, which BTW died because your knee banging into the steering wheel wouldn't allow full travel backward of your leg when trying to release the clutch and start out in 1st gear from that same green light.

Because if you were someone who'd known what that was like, you'd also know what it feels like to go through all that ONLY TO HAVE IT HAPPEN TWICE IN A ROW AT THE SAME LIGHT, and also what it feels like to bring that whole sordid situation to a merciful close when you finally figure out to open the drivers door slightly at every 1st gear start-off from stop, so as to allow your knee to clear the steering wheel and you (and the car) to clear the intersection in only 1 try!

So you drink FOUR beers while you're driving around?!?! Damn man, don't you think that's a little excessive?!? Maybe it's time to get some help, maybe??? I can give you the number of my interventionist if you want it...once someone throws one for me, HA!!!
