I don't usually post personal things, but in this case, I have enough psychic pain that I want to vent.
After last Sunday's car-killing problem, I took the car in to get fixed. It turns out, I was right about the problem and about the estimated repair costs. But wait: the car needed routine maintenance as well. All told, it got:
- a new water pump;
- an oil change;
- new brake fluid;
- a new microfilter for the air conditioner;
- new wiper blades;
- a minor recall service; and
- a partridge in a pear tree.
Total damage: $1,996.74.
I seriously wonder why I have a car at all. Oh, right, because tomorrow I'm going to see family in Outer Suburbistan.
