Congrats to Darius Williams, who took 2nd place in the Dump the Pump Contest for his creative “Dear John” letter. He won six month’s worth of Capital Metro passes, two tickets to an Austin Chronicle “Paper Cuts” concert, a commuter gift bag, and a free Car2Go membership with 60 free minutes.
I feel it’s time for a heart to car moment. There are a few things I must get off my chest. Over the years we’ve been through a lot together: spontaneous cross-country road-trips, campouts on the beach, tailgates – it’s really been great! But lately things have started falling apart.
Honestly, it’s not you, it’s me. You’re worth so much more than I’m capable of giving. Between your costly repairs, car insurance, not to
mention rising gas prices, I’m just not able to provide all that you need – that you deserve.
But there’s more. I’ve found someone else. I want you to hear this from me and not some hatchback down the street. Her name is CapMetro.
She’s been filling in the void since you’ve been parked – getting me across town and back, introducing me to new people, not to mention
helping me manage my finances.
Don’t take this the wrong way. I truly love you and it’s been a great ride. I just know you’re better off with someone able to provide the right kind of love and affection. I’m certain with time your new owner will have you up and running in tip-top shape in no time.
Don’t think of this as the end of the road, but as a new beginning on paths uncharted. You’ll always hold a special place in my heart.
