Just the vision of the moped you described has me cracking up!
I totally understand what you're saying about "car payments" - just can't deal with that at the moment. I can also relate to repairs costing more the value of the car. I try to do all repairs that I can which helps but there are some repairs that require tools that I don't have... that's when it starts to get expensive for me.
I've babied my car since I bought it however my "baby" is (like me...) "getting old" and "needs something fixed or replaced" more and more often! (I'd put a 'LOL' here but it isn't so funny any more!!!)
Ya know, that "Moped" might not be such a bad idea... However, just try to imagine an old guy with a 100 pound boxer and a 5 pound Shiatsu on the back!
quickly someone can do that yet not me
And you would think that after all the repairs, we would have vehicles running smoothly!
1. I quickly wind my reel once I feel a pull on my fishing rod
2. I quietly make my way to the computer in the wee hours
3. I get queasy only if I happen to eat something
