    Leasing a new Ford Focus

     

    From Latham Ford

    One of my salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting
    to lease a brand new Focus.

    As he was reviewing her credit application with her, he noticed she
    was on social security disability.

    He said to her "You don't look like you're disabled and unable to work".

    She said "Well I'm really not.. I could work if I wanted to, but I
    make more now than I did when I was working and got hurt",
    (non-disabling injury).

    She said the gov't sends her $1500.00 a month in 1 check. And she
    gets $700.00 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), and $800.00 a
    month for rent.

    Oh yeah, and 250 minutes free on her phone.

    That is just south of $3500.00 a month.

    When she was working, she was taking home about $330.00 per week.

    Do the math and then ask yourself why the hell should she go back to
    work.
