I have definitely used my breaks at work to mess around with stupid crap on my XJ before.

when people are constantly feeling around above the license plate to open your tailgate because that chromed out button a foot lower isn't obvious enough

when you total or lose your first one, and you can't go more than one car without going back.
...Or you do like i did and got side swiped by a drunk driver, and use it for a "work" jeep...I did buy another after that happened though. I have a total of 4 XJs now. Can't get rid of any of them because they all have a "purpose".

When you settle for the factory am/fm cassette player because aftermarket cd players look funny in your dash

At first I was always hopping out to check the tires to see if I had (or was getting) a flat!! Now, I've just come to accept it that the steering wheel will never always be perfectly horizontal.

got into a low impact(about 10mph) accidednt and since then, it has been flashing at me almost constantly. Had the codes read at the Zone, checked everthing that they pertain to, all checks out, and still no reason why they are there.

on topic: when your boss asks you why you parked on the hill at work and you tell him because its a Jeep and there were no other places to park. and he replys with "oh, ok, well your the only one that can," and walks away.
