The Lemon Car

Every now and then we each run across someone that ended up with a car referred to as a "lemon". Although a lemon for a car can truly mess someones life up, there seems to be some humor in it. I think it has become a common joke that a car which turns out to be a lemon was finished on a Friday just before the whistle blew.

Maybe that's not the case, but either way you look at it I always thought a lemon car scene would have made a good story for a candid camera type of television show. Your imagination could really run with that one... As the person drives the car off the lot to test drive it many strange things could begin to happen as the salesperson attempts to convince the individual that the challenges are normal. Or how about an extreme scene where the front bumper falls off and they run over it getting it stuck under the car.

Many ideas could be implemented if it were just all a joke. Unfortunately it isn't a joke when it really happens and someone gets stuck with a lemon. That's when you really want to be sure you are dealing with a reputable dealer or honest individual when you purchase your next car.
