Jeepy, It’s Been Nice Knowing You…

bye bye jeep

Dear Jeff’s Jeep,

I wish I could say I’m sorry to see you go, that I’ll miss the bi-weekly $800 repair bills, or the way things got stolen out of you all the time, or the fact that you are so damn noisy I can’t even talk to Jeff when riding in you, but I’m sorry, I can’t.

I know you made Jeff very happy – at least for a short while until we realized that for the amount of money we’ve had to pay to keep you running could have bought us a new mercedes, or maybe two.

I will say that you did at least one good thing for me.. maybe next time when I warn Jeff that he’s making a big mistake like I did before he bought you he’ll actually LISTEN – but probably not.
But really, its not your fault. You just can’t compete with our new Nissan Altima and its great gas mileage, side airbags and well, the fact that its not a death trap for babies!

So I leave you with this picture of yourself, the way we will always remember you, being worked on as usual:

Remember that? That was the time your starter broke in South Beach two days before our wedding when we were supposed to be picking up our friends from the airport. .. good times, good times.

So, while Jeff may still feel a little sad to see you go. I say GOOD RIDANCE! Don’t let the door hit you in the bumper on the way out…

  1. I can’t tell you how funny it was to read about your husband’s jeep! You are quite a writer! Good luck with your Nissan. I’m sure you will be very happy with it. It sounds like you’re ready for something more reliable and I hope you found it.

  2. ha ha. See you later, Jeep.

  3. Dear Jeep, Ari is just jealous because we had a wonderful relationship she could never understand and a bond that could never be broken. Yes you had the occasional malfunction but I know that was part of your charm. I’ll never forget the time we spent together and the friendship we formed. I am sure we will meet agian someday. Maybe in grease monkey heaven. Until then farewell my friend, may your pistons always fire on all 4 cylinders.
    Your friend, Jeff

  4. Jeff’s response is great!

  5. But it has more personality than fifty Mercedes!
    Mine is just starting to get a little tetchy – right indicator won’t turn off automatically, passenger seat sticks in its runner, hole in the radiator – and the gas bills are horrible, but somehow I can’t part with Babe the Beach car.

  6. Hysterical!!! ;-)

    Merry Christmas!

  7. Can’t believe it! I will always remember the call… we’re on the side of the road… but we’ll get to the Palms. Priceless. Enjoy the new wheels!

  8. Ha Ha Dawn, there were WAY too many of those kind of calls where Jeepy was concerned!

  9. HA!!!! Hilarious
