YKYAE-

You wonder what this 'air conditioner' thing is everyone's talking about.

You finally have a car with AC, and keep forgetting to turn it on-in 99F + temperatures.

You shave your head for greater hot weather efficiency-you can always add a hat in cool weather for quicker startups...

You wish that someone made a quick-release tinted auto window film, so you could block the light in summer and welcome it in for winter.

You wish Thermal-guard reversible thermal windows came in auto-aftermarket variety-it's not fair houses get all the toys!

Your first thought at the new 'I AM RAM' commercials is to grit your teeth.

Your second reaction is to laugh, knowing that your modded, eco-driven vehicle will continue gracefully on while 'I AM RAM' pulls into station after station after station, screaming 'PAY THE ATTENDANT' to its hapless driver.

...you don't mind looking like Britney Spears to get that extra MPG... (I remember the time when I secretly wished I could look like Britney Spears. Now, I hope I never even resemble her...)

YKYAEM if you're thrilled to see it's 28°F (-2°C) out because you know you'll get better gas mileage when it's that warm.
