Simple Question about the Bruins game...

Okay, let's say you have a pretty nice car. You are convinced it is one of the better ones you have seen in your community.

Now, let's say your car breaks down, you know a fair bit about cars so you take a look under the hood. When you look under the hood you realize that if you get a mechanic to make a few changes to the engine you can get your car back up and running in tip top condition in no time.

now, with knowing all of this...



would you

A.) Take it to the shop and get the repair work done?

or

B.) Walk out to your car every single day, try the ignition and pray that it works?

What happens if there is a labour shortage in town and the price to get your car fixed up is more than you can afford?

Sometimes you need to take out a loan to get it fixed just so that you can still get to work and you don't lose your job.

There's always that one place you can count on that will get the job done and for a reasonable price.

Yes, but if you take out too many loans you might not have your job at the bank anymore.

Maybe you don't need your car until next year and the old bike you found in the garage works just fine?

What if the bank gives you a 150,000 line of credit at a prime rate?

What if you want to trade in your car for a new car, but no one will sell you a nice car because they don't want your car? And then, if you offer to throw in a bike, plus free gas for a year, but only if they'll sell you their car and a year's worth of free parking downtown, they tell you where you can stuff your car, your bike, and your gas?

What a no difference 6 months can make. Seriously, this D was never going to cut it.

Either is untraceable where there are fire investigations.
