America used to be an industrial nation- a place where blue collar workers could make a decent living even without a formal education. These days, our economic engine is driven more by ATM fees and text message overcharging than value-add manufacturing, and it’s a much harsher world for those lacking the tools to compete that an education provides. That’s why this poorly written screed from a 69-year old individual, seeking to trade his Pontiac Grand Prix for a place to live, seems so sorrowful. That being said, it’s also one of the strangest ads I’ve ever seen as the Grand Prix in question has also been lightly modified by the owner for ‘better fuel economy,’ and sports what looks like a handicapped license plate. Check out the entire ad after the jump.
Thanks to Derek Horner for the tip.
