So. Anthony goes to college. I take it it’s not the University of California. I also take it that he’s not an English major.
Do you get it now why this business is driving me crazy?
People keep telling me that the customers are getting smarter and smarter. I think that peeked about 1997. Since then, the education system in this country has deteriorated to the point that the customers are now becoming dumber again. Good news for Car Men everywhere. I think.
I will be 60 soon. Retirement is not too far down the road.
Talk to you later,
