    I just gotta vent...

    I just have to vent about my day real fast and about how much the karmic balance is out of balance with me and cars.

    2 days ago I noticed that my car was running a little hot, so I called my mechanic and arranged to have him look at my car today.

    I woke up today and went outside to take my car in, only to find that my car has a flat tire. So I take it in to a local service station and have it fixed. Total price: $30

    From there I took it to my mechanic. It started to overheat on the way there, but fortunatly it made it. He said he's call me once he's had a chance to look at it.

    I come home and my fience asks me to take a few things down to her parents house, and to use her car for it. I drive down to her parents house, park in front of their house, walk up to the front door and hear a loud 'CRUNCH'!!!. I turned around and found that their neighbor across the street had gotten into her SUV and backed out of her driveway without looking behind her to see that there was a car parked and totaled the side of my fience's 2005 Volkswagen Jetta. Price for repair: Unknown at this time.

    Liz's parents give me a ride back home. I walk in and I get a call from my mechanic. The water pump is out and the thermostat needs replacing. There is also a wire that is attached to the car's fan which is causing it to run constantly. He then calls me a few hours later and lets me know that the car is fixed. Total cost for repairs: $350.

    I then drive over to a friends house for a bit, and on the way home my car falls apart. First all the gauges bottom out, then the lights go out, then the car stops all together. I called AAA but they can't get to it for a few hours, so I call Liz and she comes down with her sister and between the 3 of us we get it off the freeway and into a semi safe place. Liz's sister will be taking me back to the car tomorrow so I can get it towed to my place, then I'll be taking off work on Monday so I can have it towed back to my mechanic.

    I hate cars!!!

    Phew!! Thanks for listening.

    Re: I just gotta vent...

    On the upside, you're due to win the lotto as far as karma is concerned. It truly sucks that all of that stuff happened at the same time.

    I agree. Cars suck. There was a time when I could pop open the hood of my Mercury Capri or Toyota Celica and change a water pump inside of 15 minutes. Now....if you're not a computer, you're probably not going to fix much of anything. On my wife's car, you can't even change the oil filter without dropping the entire front end. Last year I shelled out $3000 on some stupid ball joints, two hood cannisters, and some kind of stupid emissions smog filter thing for my Ford Exploder. I spent less than that on my Mercury Capri when I bought it.

    Maybe that's why the head gasket blew on the 5 freeway a short time later.

    Hmmmm....

    Sorry buddy, that sucks. On the bright side, you're safe, your fiance is safe, and the cars can all be fixed. Remember, stuff=not important, people=important.

    Hope you have a better day today.

    Right on.

    You can fix the cars.....but I/we understand the need to vent. With my current medical issues and lower income issues because of it, and my 1993 Volvo needs major work - I have definitely felt the need to vent - and then some.

    Hang in there dude. It'll get better.

    Ours broke down today also, thank goodness no crashes yet. But karma had it in for us also. Last month we were only charged $89.00 on our credit card for a $890.00 invoice. Pay back is a b***h!

    Hehe, I agree. Friggin' stupid tap dancing penguins.

    Back on topic, I'm sorry Oogie. I understand your need to vent though. Hopefully you won't have any more car trouble for a long, long time.
