My mom's visiting now, and I'm letting her use my car while I'm at work. Anyhoo, she came to pick me up today, and as she crested the hill, I saw this beautiful car with headlights and fog lights blazing, cutting through the thick fog. It was the most beautiful sight I have ever seen. I felt so priveledged to have such a car.
Later mom asked me why I bought a new car when my other car was doing fine; said it was a waste of money. I then spent 15 minutes trying to explain the concept of utility in economic terms to her. Some people just don't understand.
