Difference Between Right and Left

Raoul’s Two Cents: April 5, 2024

Mechanical Failure

I was worried about my friend “Barry” who needed to get a new car battery. I was also watching some infuriating videos about the politicians in different parts of the country. I fell asleep. Then I woke up from a silly dream that was influenced by my friend and the videos; so I thought I’d share it with you. Honest! This situation really was in my dream. Hope you like it.

* * START of DREAM * * *

Barry’s car breaks down in the middle of the road and he calls out for help. Adang Sheet, the mechanic from Triple-Bypass A is the first to show up.

Barry: Thanks for coming! I’m glad I subscribed to your Free Car Assistance Program. But before you work your magic, I want you to know that I have a very tight budget. So knowing this, can you still get my car to start running?

Adang: Sure can pardner, they don’t call me “Adang Shifty Sheet” for nothin’.

Hearing that nickname, Barry gets very anxious about the idiot before him but he lets Adang figure out what’s wrong.

A few minutes later …

Adang: Well, looks like you have a dead battery, mister. I have a BRAND NEW one in my truck. I can sell it to you for $500.

Barry: $500?!? Batteries in Walmart only cost $300 at the most!

Adang: Sure they do. But they don’t sparkle as good as mine. I painted ‘em muhself.

Barry: I don’t really care for sparkles. I just want my car to run.

Adang: Tell you what, since you look like an honest feller, I can sell it to you for $350. It’ll save you a trip to Walmart.

Barry: Gee thanks for the offer but I can’t afford anything over $100 now. Do you have any other solution?

Realizing he’s dealing with a smart man, Adang says: Lesse now, I can sell you an OLD battery at the back. I’ll sell it for $100. It doesn’t charge anymore but I can exchange it and at least get your car running fer ya!

Barry: So you could get my car running if we use an old battery?

Adang: Sure can.

Barry: So why can’t you use MY old battery instead of YOUR old battery to get my car running?

Adang looks at Barry with disgust and, without another word, he jumps the car and Adang successfully starts Barry’s car.

Barry: Thanks for getting my car running again. Sorry you didn’t make any money this time.

Adang: Before you go, can I ask a little donation for the LMA, which is a non-profit organization I just started?

Barry: LMA? What does that stand for?

Adang: Lousy Mechanics of America — someone’s gotta stand up for people like me.

Barry laughs uncontrollably while Adamn wonders what’s so funny.

Barry: You aren’t very good at this, are you?

Adang: I guess not. That’s why I’m the president of the LMA.

Barry (laughing even more): Well, you’re a good mechanic but a lousy salesman … but you’re kinda honest, and you’ve got ambition … I’ve got connections in the government. How’d you like a change of career? How’d you like to run for the Senate?!?

Adang: Dang! Hot digity dawg! Let’s go pardner!

And that’s how Adang wound up in the Senate floor.

* * END of DREAM * * *

When you think of many politicians, do you wonder if they got their start as a member of the LMA? I certainly do … but that’s just me.

TGIF people!

    It sure is a bummer when your car doesn’t start for sure. It happened to me about a month ago AAA came out and the guy used the wire brush and scraped off some corrosion and I was off and running.

    Dream should have ended with the punchline, “Bam! Adang ended up in my the senate floor!’ What a nightmare that was.

    Using a car battery and mechanics as your subject is interesting. You know I am always looking forward to your TGIF email.

    TGIF!
    I keep telling you that left handed people think with the RIGHT side of their brain. That’s why I’m wrong a lot about normal stuff. But the stuff that really matters I’m right because I’m left handed and think with my right side of the grain.

    Crazy dreams but makes sense.

    Now you are back to regular programming…
    Talking about “stupidity” there is one quote I read many moons ago…it defined stupidity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results..much like when the husband argues with the wife…same result… talo pa rin! [You still lose!]

    And in the states, you have these special days-which na mana na rin ng Phils (which the Philippines inherited] …. Grandparents day, women’s day, (same ba ng mother’s day yun?) [is that the same as mon day over there?]
    etc etc..e yung husband’s day? ……it is always on April 1 [and Husband’s Day is always in April Fool’s day!]
