The Sonata squeaks, squeals, and whines...

as described by hubby.


Hubby:  We have a problem with the Sonata

Me:  Really?

Hubby:  Yeah.  I was driving down the road at a slow speed and it squeaked.

Me:  Squeaked?  I never heard of a car squeaking (except when the door joints needed WD40 or it was infested with illegal lab mice) 

Hubby:  Well, maybe it more of a squeal.

Me:  A squeal?

Hubby:  Actually, it was more like a whine.

Me:  Hmmmmmmmmmm

Hubby: It only happened at slow speeds.  On the freeway was no problem.

Me: How about when you applied the brakes?

Hubby:  Oh yeah - it whined, squealed, and squeaked big time then.

Me: Hmmmmmmmmmmm

Me:  Did the car stop?

Hubby:  Well, yeah.  Otherwise I wouldn't be here.  I'd be splattered all over the freeway.  As you can see, I'm sitting right here telling you about the squeak.

Me:  Maybe we should call the shop and get the car in.

Hubby:  But, but, but, I need the car Friday night (this is Wed.)

Me:  I understand that, but if we wait it won't get fixed.

Hubby: Hmmmmmmm, hadn't thought about that.

Me: Uh huh

Me:  It sounds like the brake squealers have been activated.

Hubby:  Huh?

Me:  BRAKE SQUEALERS -  have you never heard of brake squealers?

Hubby:  No

Me:  Oh, dear God.  This role reversal thing is a real burden.
