The Secret Of A Good Deal (limerick)

I got my car at a used lot

From salesman whose deals were red hot

In all of his flurries

One secret he buries

Another man’s worries I bought

Ain't they the very definition of the word ' shady '? I guess those shades are the modern day equivalent of a highwayman's mask.

Sometimes there are reasons why the used car was sold to the dealer in the first place. I would hate to be the one buying someone else's worries! But then again, one man's trash is another one's treasure!

How true! How true! Many years ago I bought a used car and it broke down half a mile from the car lot. I was fuming. I called the salesman to come a get this lemon and demanded my money back.

Yep, that's the downside of buying a used car. People don't usually trade in their vehicles because they want a different color. They trade them in for one that works.

Used car salesmen have a knack for that.
