By now, we've all heard about the wildly popular Government program, Cash for Clunkers. This program awards cash to car owners that are trading in a gas guzzler for a more "earth friendly" alternative. That's great, huh?

Well, what about folks like me that can't participate, for whatever reason? Can't I trade in something else? I'm sure I have things that I could trade in for something more modern and "earth friendly'?

For instance, what about all the VHS tapes that my husband has? Can I trade them in for a new pair of eco friendly Jimmy Choos?? What about the 120 pound Rottweiler? Can I trade it in for a cute little Teacup? What about the bottle of Coke sitting on my night table? It went flat. Can I trade it in for a new one in a biodegradable bottle? What about the size 8 jeans that I packed up and moved here? Can I trade them in for some trendy, "green," size 12s?

Why is the government overlooking me? Why are they ignoring my needs? Why can't I participate? I HAVE clunkers!

Your comments--priceless!!

  1. Okay, this post made me laugh and think of all the things I'd like to trade in...


  2. I was disappointed in this as well. In May I bought a new car and my old car was from 1995 and I still didn't qualify for this....

    hi; found your blog through Martha's (Menagerie). I think it is a good program if people are prepared to get a new car; we have 2 vehicles that would qualify for the program, but then when we buy the next vehicle up to qualify, that means probably car payments and that I don't want for sure

    I would like to trade in about 30 pounds; think they would take that??

    betty
