Re: [DML] Displaying Our Cars

I got tired of the questions about "Did I find any coke in the car?" or "Where is the coke?" I came up with an answer that usually shuts them up, " I didn't get the snow tire option!"
My friend, who is a cop is tired of "What happens if you go 88 mph?" He responds, "You get a ticket!"
Feel free to use them if you like.
