Haunted Yaris

A couple of months ago, we noticed that our car was mysteriously turning on by itself. We went through the usual steps — counseling, begging... We even called a priest to perform an exorcism. No luck. Finally we took it in to the dealership, and it turns out the "turny-on-y gizmo" (pictured) we got with the car had somehow been programmed to start the car every three hours. It turns off automatically after five minutes, but still — all that gas wasted, all that carbon monoxide pouring into our house... Annoying, and scary! It got me to thinking, why on Earth would that even be an option? Who would ever want their car to start every three hours? Well, happily, the problem has been solved. Now if we could just figure out why that damn blender starts up every morning at 4:58 all will be well...
