Nothing But Trouble

on July 8, 2016


Ahhh, Lil Bear, how you ail me

Your water pump

Then your thermostat

No, wait, maybe it’s your radiator

AND your thermostat *sigh*

Now your lug nuts break!?

Just think, it all began with some transmission rattles and a man I thought was honest!


That rip-off mechanic is lucky I believe in karma

    I can feel you girl!!! I literally hate car problems… there would be a new car in my immediate future…

      He was my new car 😦
      Mick is being really great about helping me, though. And it’s good “bonding” time. That mechanic is just a douche, though. Funny thing: Mick mentioned he’s been talking to someone about the possibility of buying that asshole’s shop from him. I like to fantasize about it.

      Anyway, once these repairs are done, the car will be fine for a very long time. I see many long-distance skate parties in his future!

  2. I feel your pain. Hey, we just found out that the shit ton of money (that’s a metric shit ton, or about 1.768 imperial shit tons) we spent on that weird repair was totally wasted, because the problem still exists. Oh, what’s that? Maybe there’s a logic problem? Maybe idiot mechanics should listen when the engineer says it sounds like a false reading? Tcha.

    How much more will it all cost? No way to tell.

      Yeah, it sucks trying to find someone honest who will actually fix the problem instead of just working around it because they don’t want to take the time and figure it out. Mick is very good about figuring it out. In fact, he wants to open a shop where women can take their vehicle and feel like they’re actually getting it fixed!! He’s got investors lined up and is looking for a space.

      Sorry about your car 😦

Talk to me :-)
