When she got home she opened the trunk and it was full of water. She bailed it out, got a hammer and screwdriver and banged holes in the bottom of the trunk.
She then told me about her friend in Florida whose car roof leaked. She taped an umbrella to the back of her seat so she wouldn't get wet.
These are the things poor people do to get by.
My first husband and I had a car that had a hole in the floor of the front passenger side. I could see the road speeding by as we drove along. It didn't bother us too much. At least we had a car!
