friend who will drive you to the creepiest corner of the town so you can retrieve your car from the tow yard and walks in with you to make sure you make it out alive (and also discusses the possibilities and probabilities of what it would look like if you sold your car because it’s from 1999 and most likely not worth the aforementioned costs and aggravation and heartache): PRICELESS.
