Well I tried, and I tried real hard. I currently drive what is traditionally thought of where I come from as a non-American auto. No, I won’t say which brand so don’t ask as I’m not proud. I went to a local “American” auto dealer today to attempt to relieve myself of this cursed car.
No go man. First strike – my credit is blown. Final strike – negative equity. Seems I need to make oversized payments on this piece of shit for another year or so to offset the difference between what I owe and a realistic dollars and cents before being able to kill this car. Even a Lease Option couldn’t help me roll that bad equity over.
I so despise the idea of “credit” and one’s credit score. Dammit, that fricking number does not and will never define me as a human being or my character as such. But like millions of us stuck here on the planet, we have no choice but to follow the dictates of said “powers that be”. Powers that I have seen for so long as dictatorial, all controlling and solely dedicated to controlling the masses, regardless of which continent we reside upon. End of rant.
