There are lots of perfect guys on this list.  Just ask 'em!

I can understand being upset about the car.  My car has been with me
through a lot of men.  Back when I first got my car, I got a lot of 
weird reactions from guys about the car.  They fell into two categories.  
One was the assumption that I must be an idiot to buy an old British car, 
therefore I needed to be protected by not being allowed to make any 
decisions for myself.  I once told a story like this to the list.  The 
other was the assumption that my car was always going to be broken down 
and need work that I couldn't afford and I'd need rides everywhere I 
needed to go, so I'd be a blood sucking leach that would drain a guy dry.
Even though I told every guy I met that I was a professional MG mechanic,
they still couldn't believe that I could keep my car running.  I still
don't know if that was an insult to MG's or me.

My car and I are now much older (and it's a classic and I'm not) and the 
world (at least Southern California) has mellowed out.  Now guys think 
it's really cool that I have old cars and can work on them because they 
want me to work on their cars too!  That's why I live with someone with a 
'91 Toyota truck.

How could you avoid me?  I post every 30 seconds or so.

> What jobs have you not had?

Well, the first one that comes to mind is the oldest one.  Actually, 
the list of jobs I haven't had stretches to the moon and back.  I've
just acquired a few skills over the years (lots of years).  I recently 
saw brain surgery performed and it looked pretty easy, but no one will 
let me try it.
