Breaking down in your car is the ultimate test of human patience. You’re driving along, minding your own business, and suddenly your engine starts making a noise that could wake the dead. You pull over to the side of the road, and before you know it, you’re stuck in a lay-by with no hope of escape.

But fear not, dear reader! I’m here to provide you with some helpful tips on what to do when your car breaks down. And by “helpful tips,” I mean “a bunch of sarcastic jokes that may or may not actually be useful.”

Step 1: Panic.

The first thing you should do when your car breaks down is panic. Start hyperventilating, screaming at the top of your lungs, and generally making a scene. This will let everyone around you know that you’re in distress and need help.

Step 2: Call a friend.

Once you’ve calmed down a bit, it’s time to call a friend. Ideally, this friend will be a mechanic who can fix your car on the spot. But if you don’t have any mechanic friends, any friend will do. Call them up and tell them your sob story about how your car broke down and you’re stranded on the side of the road. Bonus points if you can make them feel guilty enough to come and rescue you.

Step 3: Make a TikTok.

While you’re waiting for your friend to arrive, why not make a TikTok about your car breaking down? Get creative! You could film yourself pretending to hitchhike, or lip-syncing to “I Will Always Love You” while looking wistfully at your car. The possibilities are endless.

Step 4: Start a car club.

If you’re stuck on the side of the road for an extended period of time, why not start a car club? Invite other stranded motorists to join you, and before you know it, you’ll have a whole community of people swapping car stories and bonding over your shared misfortune.

Step 5: Accept your fate.

Eventually, your friend will arrive and fix your car. But until then, you’re stuck on the side of the road. So why not just accept your fate? Get comfortable, settle in, and start thinking about how you’re going to tell this story at parties for years to come.

In conclusion, breaking down in your car is a nightmare. But with a little bit of humor and a lot of sarcasm, you can make the best of a bad situation. Just remember to panic, call a friend, make a TikTok, start a car club, and accept your fate. Or, you know, actually try to fix your car. But where’s the fun in that?
