When you buy a $300,000 car, do you take out an auto loan … or a mortgage? (Actually, I’m guessing you pay for it with a bag of unmarked bills.)

So here’s that Lamborghini I was telling you about. It was parked outside the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia, widely considered the nicest hotel in the city. Wonder Woman and I stayed in a luxurious and spacious suite there on our wedding night way back in 1998. Back then, as a young lad in my 20s, I dared to dream that I might one day be able to afford such a car. Thirteen years later, I can’t afford to spend a night at the hotel it was parked in front of.

Might be time to reevaluate my game plan.

    I can maybe afford a picture of the hotel and car. Does that count?

    I can honestly say, now, that I never knew how much it would cost to raise children. I miss the days when all we had to buy the kids were diapers and formula. We complained about the expense then BUT WE DIDN’T KNOW what was to come. Maybe I should get a job washing expensive cars?

    I hate to even tell you this, but I think that’s my father’s friend’s car. He visits the Rittenhouse for lunch often. Did you happen to see the plate and was it RSM ESQ? Cause that’s his car. And I hate to break it to you, but he did, indeed, pay cash for it.
    We hate him too.

    I paid cash for mine. But then I woke up.

    I know, I have big plans for when we make it “big.” We’ve been working on it for the past 12 years, and then these 3 things appeared out of nowhere –and by that I mean my loins– and all of our money seems to dwindle and go to the food bill. But dream big, or go home, right?

    I don’t think I can even afford to look at that car!

    How about a little perspective.
    What, exactly, do you do with a car?
    Ding..Ding..Ding..Ding! That’s right dum-dum, you simply drive from point “A” to point “B”.
    Any Asshole that spends that kind of money on a car, should have all his wealth “redistributed”
    Do you have any idea how many abandoned animals could have their LIVES sparred with the difference of basic transportation and USELESS consumerism. Would you really drive that? Is that what you want your kids to aspire too?

    There are other, easier ways to own that car. Unfortunately for you they involve having a great rack and almost no morals.

    We like to refer to that as a “penis on wheels”.

    You should come to L.A. I see Bentley’s, Ferrari’s, and Lambo’s just driving to the grocery store 2 min away from my house. It’s not uncommon to see at least 10 exotic cars on a Friday night, especially around the Sunset strip. It’s also not unusual to find yourself parked next to a Bentley or Maserati etc.

    I work at an insurance agency and we ran a quote the other day for a Ferrari. Surprisingly, it came back just barely over what I pay for my ’02 Honda, haha
