But if you try sometime, you just might find that NO ONE IN FREAKING NEW YORK CITY HAS A CAR I CAN BORROW! Bah! I have an opportunity to get away for the weekend, but am too broke to rent a car. Why don't I have any friends with extra cars hanging around?
Am I hoping that someone will see this post and email me and say "Hey eefers, you can use my car. Just be nice to it. I trust you."? Yes. Do I think that will really happen? No. But it's worth a try, anyway. Right?
