Driving Me Crazy
16 year old Shmuli Markowitz never misses an opportunity to remind his parents that he wants his own car. One morning as Mrs. Markowitz drove him to school, it was apparent that they would be late. Mrs. Markowitz asked Shmuli to write a note, which she would sign when they arrived.
At school, Shmuli handed his mother a pen and the note, which read: "Shmuli is late this morning due to car trouble. The trouble is, Shmuli doesn’t have his own car.”
