I'm too busy, Out-of-Touch Campus Motors promised all the masses "good cars" because "that is the reason" for giving $12,500 to upper income people to buy their shiny new rides.

Getting investors together for the hottest future business ever.... "hey middle class, we got these 5 year old hand-me-downs from the bubble. Sorry you had to wait 5 years and wore out lots of shoes. So now, just sign here. yeah it's a higher rate, shorter term because of car age - but in the bubble we just think you can afford double the car payment you can afford. Oh, and the tires will be more expensive and you have no protection and any repairs are out of your pocket".

I keep telling investors this will be the hottest business in the world - for some reason, no takers.

"Go Baristas!" means their "$15 an hour!" wasn't enough to buy one. So they "go" on their feet or take the bus.
