"The dog who caught the car."

"The dog who caught the car."

Do you know what this means? I was listening to a quiz show on PBS and they were asking for the meaning of new terms.

This statement means: A person who reaches their goal but don't know what to do with it.

A great image for those who have what they need to retire early but don't know what to do! (Like me.)

Here is a suggestion: when a post asks if I have enough to retire and they do - the response should be: "You caught the car."


Sometimes death is not as tragic as not knowing how to live. This man knew how to live--and how to make others glad they were living. - Jack Benny at Nat King Cole's funeral
