I decided I love my car. I have 98 Honda Civic LX, green, with a shmuz sticker, and I love it. It sometimes needs work, but generally it runs nicely and goes where I want it to go. And I got 45 miles per gallon on the highway when I put it on cruise control at 60 MPH.
When it becomes legal in NY, I’m going to marry it.June 26, 2011 6:08 am at 6:08 am #1113617ZeesKiteParticipant
And I have to divorce my car. Mechanic says he’s not touching it any more. Has to do with some leak in ‘the mechanical matter’.
Inspection runs out tonight. Looking for new prospects..June 26, 2011 6:17 am at 6:17 am #1113618
@zees: wait, you have a car at nine years old? =D

Had – to be more precise. Actually I still have it, but I think there’s some complications as to ???? ????? or something of that sort. If it doesn’t take care of itself (like something whitish billowing out from under the hood…) Any nine year old could get possession of that sort.June 26, 2011 6:39 am at 6:39 am #1113620ronrsrMember

I love jaguars, especially the ones between 6 months and 2 years of age. That is why I pay a couple of chevre who graduated Rikers to trap them for me, and then I adopt them as pets. They sure drink a lot of gasoline.June 26, 2011 11:45 am at 11:45 am #1113628flowersParticipant

shein: i hear where you are making a differentiation. ok then well yes i never loved a cat 😛
i still can’t really believe i even posted on this thread but what do you want from a guy at two in the morning? (don’t ask what i was doing up it would take too long to explain)

I actually did buy the car from a guy in the chofetz chaim kollel. But I put the shmuz magnet on myself–I didn’t know it was a chofetz chaim thing. But I’ll still leave it on, I like it. It gives my car personality, and I wouldn’t want to marry something with no personality.June 26, 2011 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #1113633minyan galMember
popa_bar_abba – Please promise to send me an invitation to the chasaneh. I have never been to NY and if I am invited to a simcha, well I always attend simchas. I hope they don’t change the law too quickly (which I doubt as the lawmakers are all tuckered out from the last marriage laws that they changed – they need a rest) because Canada is in the midst of a postal strike, so I won’t get my invitation. Please wait until the strike is over. Also, will your gift registry be at Amoco or Exxon?
ps: when you break the glass, don’t do it too close to the tires.June 27, 2011 1:51 am at 1:51 am #1113634deiyezoogerMember

popa- GREAT NEWS!!! You may have your wedding anytime now as the Canadian postal strike is now over – I just read the news here on YWN. Please send my invitation to:
New home of the Winnipeg Jets.
I think that should do it. When Canada Post is working at their best they are able to track almost anyone down. A few years ago, a friend of mine received a letter addressed to “Auntie Shelley” with the name of her street underneath – no numbers – and she got the letter. In approximately 1920, my father’s uncle received a letter from his brother in Russia addressed to “Joe Shmoe (pseudonym) – Canada”. He also received his letter. So, in this computerized day and age, they should have no trouble finding me.
I am so excited – I will be coming to New York – and for a simcha!June 27, 2011 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #1113639adorableParticipant
so you are a shmuz guy? coolJune 27, 2011 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #1113640
No, not a shmuz guy. I just like the sticker.June 28, 2011 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #1113641adorableParticipant
isn’t that geneivas daas? you make ppl think you are shmuz guy when you’re not. either become one (his stuff is great) or take the sticker off.

You should totally call your car “the shmuz cruise”! It sounds like a real jalopy though.March 9, 2014 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1113648feldmanechussidMember
Where do you take a car on a shidduch date? What hotel has a big enough lobby? If guys fill out blue forms and girls pink forms, what forms do cars fill out? There are a whole host of new halachik questions here.March 9, 2014 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #1113649
Vehicles are female, except for some motorcycles. When you go on a date, both drive, and you remain in the parking lot where she is comfortable.March 18, 2014 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1113650

My mechanic zogt az it needed a new wheel bearing today.
Also it needed a new wheel bearing today.
Those were two different statements.
The first was the reason for the second.
It made noise, and now it doesn’t, but I have no idea if there was just a pebble, or a loose nut, or the wheel bearing was going bad. But it needed a new wheel bearing, because that was the price I had to pay to get my mechanic to fix whatever it was that was making the noise. And I definitely needed to fix that noise.
So you see, my mechanic said it needed a new wheel bearing, and it did.
This is an important lesson for marriage. Your wife says she needs new shoes, and therefore she needs new shoes.August 8, 2014 4:12 am at 4:12 am #1113659
