All I remember is thinking I wanna be like them. The auto insurance bastards actually wanted to charge me $125,000 JMD for one year of comprehensive insurance. Reason being that my license in only 11 months old and I have failed the mandatory drug test they administered to me over the phone. Lesson learned? get your drivers license as soon as possible. I never understood before, I never knew what love was for. The also asked how much the car cost. I told them $500,000 JMD. Another company said that they don't even give insurance to anybody with a drivers license less that 2 yrs old.
A female friend of mine (with herpes) said that they also take the cost of the car and the fact that I am 25, unmarried, computer programmer, with a blog, no kids, lots of free time, no steady girlfriend, account on wheels, no house, into account.
Coupled with the fact that 2 serious accidents occurred in Kingston and Ocho Rios recently. The wheelsjamaica people are on a "drive slow" but no body listens. Tamika promised to sell me her 98 civic hatch, bitch car, with sun roof when she gets back - pray for me. For $450,000 with 130,000 miles on the clock, Its green - not a hype color but I guess I could get some stickers and make it look all "fast and the furious". I hope nobody steals it before I get to buy it or nodody steals it during or after I buy it. Debie at General Automotive Insurance says she can get me better deal ($88,000) . Never judge a company by its old website. She could tell from my voice that I'm high. Your bueatiful.
How by the time ATI comes around I'll have a car and be able to make plans for the next one i.e. if I don't crash and die. Surrender my soul. Its a Bitter Sweet Symphony thats life, try make ends meet, your a slave to the money then you die. I have a girlfriend that gets all pissed when I refer to life a series of obvious misfortunes and says that what ever you say "is very powerful". I reply by saying that the Lord works in mysterious ways and you can't go around thinking that your not going to die suddenly. All things come to those who wait. Have a little faith. I am not cynical, I'm objective. I might have pushed her too far - I am sorry.
Currently the Jamaican Dollar JMD is almost $67.00 to $1 USD. :(
