grammar question

kamistry asked
Last Modified: 2015-06-16
This is a writing question.  

Do people say, "Why we might"  like this:

"I can't let the mechanic go now. What would happen if something broke in the middle of the dessert.  Why I might not know what to do at all."

Is this something people say?
Using "Why I might" or "Why we might"

Maybe it is not correct grammar, but do people say this?
Since it is used in quote, I think it is safe, but I am trying to find out if
1) if why and might can be used like this
2) if it is correct grammar or not

I guess the second question is less important, because the passage is in a quotation of what someone says...
