The 10$ Car

As I was walking down the street, I was thinking how my life was crumbling apart and how I had not been successful at anything before. For the most of my existence on this planet I had lived a really mediocre life, below-average grades at school, never had that many friends, spent a lot of my days sitting my room rotting away thinking about how things could have been better while still not doing anything to fix it. I do not know if that would be considered being lazy or having lost all hope but I don’t care anyway. And in an unbelievable turn of events, it got even worse! My grades at school were at an all-time low and fewer and less people were starting to talk with me. I didn’t know what to do anymore.

While thinking about these I finally got to my home. It was time for another eventless evening. At this point every day felt the same; go to school, don’t really talk with anyone, come back to home, don’t do anything productive, repeat. I’m tired of this cycle but I don’t know what I can do to break it nor do I really want to. Actually, I want to but I as I already said I’m too lazy to do anything about it. But today, something went different, I was on my computer like I always am and saw that everything I had on it was deleted.  The first thing I thought was that my mom had done it because she wanted me to finally do something with my life and not spend all of it on that “god damned machine”.

After going to her and asking about it, I realized I was 100% right with my well-educated highly intellectual guess. I knew I could just re-download stuff on my computer but I was pretty sure mom was going to stab me to death or something if I did. As expected, she was angry. All she told me was “Do something for god’s sake get a part time job or something I’m tired of you sitting around all day every day not doing a single useful thing.”. After that all I wanted to do was make her proud for once. I started looking for easy part time jobs I could take to at least make some money and be somewhat useful.

After researching for a bit I saw that the closest job opportunity was still pretty far away so I needed a vehicle to get there. Me, being the not so smart man I am, decided to look for cheap cars on sale and found one for 10 dollars. It literally was for 10 dollars and nothing more. Without thinking I bought it. After taking care of all the procedure of the car I just bought, I went to the meeting point to get my car. When I arrived, I couldn’t believe my eyes! But you probably could, there was no car, just a note saying “If you fell for that I don’t even know what to say to you.”. And that’s when I was convinced I couldn’t do anything useful for once and gave up.
