Life Advice with Uncle Scotty

I really like a comment on Shouty's latest clickbait video:
Scotty, please do a fifteen minute livestream once a week called "Life Advice with Uncle Scotty." Maybe like Dr. Phil and Dave Ramsey rolled into one, with significantly more hair.

The poster gave some examples?

"Uncle Scotty, my girlfriend wants me to buy her a Fiat."
"Buy a Corolla."
"For her? She will--"
"No, dump her. She is crap. You will be happier with a Corolla instead of her."
Uncle Scotty, what should I study in college?"
"The key to getting through university is buying a Corolla so you do not need to worry about your car breaking down..."
"Uncle Scotty, should I buy a Chihuahua or a Pug?"
"Well, if you are not going to buy a real dog, at least buy a real car. Get yourself a good used Corolla and have a good mechanic like me check it out. That way you and your dumb dog won't get stranded somewhere."
What are some life questions you would like to see Shouty answer, possibly with solutions involving buying a Corolla?

How many Lowes would a Rob Lowe rob if a Rob Lowe did rob Lowes?

If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?
