Yeah we know, the economy is bad. Things are rough. Buhari and Emefiele are tag-teaming to show us pepper. Liquid cash no too dey again and you’re just managing your ride. But it gets to a point where you just have to let go of your car. It has seen many seasons and been through thick and thin and it is time to retire it. At this point, it has just refused to continue life with you again. Here are 7 signs to let you know it’s time to say goodbye to your jalopy.
1. The engine is louder than your radio
At this point, you need to let go and let God.
2. The AC is blowing hot summer vibes
And there seems to be no way to repair
3. It breaks down weekly
You have to applaud the consistency.
4. People hear gunshot when you drive by
Your backfire can give heart attack
5. Puffing out more smoke than a shisha lounge
When you pass, people are not sure if its smoke or harmattan is back.
6. You have to beg it to start
“Please start I beg you in the name of God”
7. Your muscles are growing from all the pushing
At least you’re saving on gym subscription.
