I just got the most ridiculous car ever. A gas-guzzling truck
. Automatic. Huge.
Even though I love it to death
, I'm surprised at myself. I mean, we all love the environment, right? And yet, in one fell swoop I seem to have purchased that which many fear the most... A ridiculous V6 TRUCK, which apparently barfs about 12,000 lbs of CO2 in a year.
Luckily, I have the opportunity to purchase a sticker for my huge truck that says I contribute $80 to something called TerraPass
. This apparently means I have eliminated my carbon footprint.
Isn't that nice?
Oh, and plus, I can win the next my-car-sounds-more-like-wild-horses-on-the-open-plains-than-yours competition against our weirdo neighbours who get a bit shouty and pedal-to-the-metal-y around 1am.
why I bought it. To become part of my community.
