When you see a ZJ stuck on the side of a road in a snowstorm, turn around and pull it out, then offer to buy it from that person because if they knew how to drive one, they wouldn't get stuck in 4 inches of snow

LOL, same here but over the past year, and you're a whole lot more organized than I am.
