The Secret Of A Good Deal (limerick)

Updated on June 27, 2013

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

      Used car salesmen have a knack for that.

      I think we have all been there. There is a great deal of truth in this.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      Makes me think about Harry Wormwood from the movie "Matilda." This was great! Voted it up!

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