One time, I took a friend along to go looking for a new car. After looking at one of the cars, he told me that it would be buying a lemon. I looked at him oddly and said, "I don't know where you buy your lemons, but if they're charging you several thousand dollars for a lemon, you need to start doing your grocery shopping somewhere else." Despite his odd comment, I ended up buying the car, and it broke down and died a couple miles away from the dealership. I suspect that my "friend" had put lemon juice in the gas tank.
