Brandy, how often do you buy a new battery? Every year? Every two years?

Maybe I'm a complete idiot, but I don't buy a battery unless it goes bad. And I sure as heck don't buy one to fix a bad starter or alternator. I guess I could keep proactively replacing all those parts in case they fail, but I might as well buy a new car, and I see those on the hook all the time, too.

In any case, I took the OP to mean that he made up the story about a weak battery.

As for tattoos, I don't have any, but I never saw this as something a criminal does. One of my coworkers has some tattoos, another guy I used to work with had a Chu Lai tattoo. I don't automatically assume anyone with a tattoo must be a criminal.

As for the OP, if I can't strike up a conversation with a stranger with my car next to me and a pistol in my pocket without being paranoid, the world's probably not worth saving any more.

Well, it looks like the original topic got lost in the shuffle and things are getting just way too personal.

I've also noted that a few newbies here seem to have a history of making things too personal. Those few definitely need to re-read the rules, because trust me, you're on thin ice. Personal attacks will not be tolerated on TFL .

This one's closed.
