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.
