Damn my car!

So, I make one picture post yesterday That my car is getting old, and my car decides to break on me!

So, last night I was on my back to where I am house sitting. I was about to turn from Harper Dr on to Burlison Dr, when the power steering gave out! So, I made it the rest of the way there (about 1/2 mile). So, I called my dad, and tried to find a flashlight. So, I started under the hood, and saw that it looked like a belt had popped off. So, I tell my dad that, and he says he will come up at 7:30 that next morning.

So, 7:30 comes, and my dad shows up. So, he looks under the hood, and notices that we have bigger problems. The spindle thing, that the belt connects to for the power steering is not in line with the rest of them like it should be. So, he tells me that we are going to have to have my car towed down to Daves (my mechanic). So, I pull it out of the garage, and onto the street. So, then I grab a bunch of my personal effects from the car, and then head to my apartment.

So, I do a few things really quick at my apartment, and then we take off for the base, so my dad can go to work. So, we get on base after fighting rush hour traffic, and drop him off. So, then I fight my way back to my apartment through rush traffic again. I shower and dress for work and the day, and then head off to work. I finally get into the office a little before 10am.

So, I just made one comment that my car was getting old. That was not meant to be a cut down to my car, but more of a accomplishment that it has made it this far, and is was still running. So, now on one positive side of this, I have my dad’s car, which is a nice change! So, this is just a great way to top off this past two weeks! LOL.


EDIT (10/27/2005 - 11:51:36): The car has been towed away. So, now its up to Dave and his team to rebuild the beast! LOL. So, now it's called the waiting game!

Don't be pissed off - Life is too short for that
Look at the bright side. Did you have to pay for the repairs????? Noooooo!!!
Did you get to drive the Probe???? Yeeessssss!!!
Now consider this. The Probe is only 3 years younger than the Volvo. But then again, it is a quarter of million miles on it less than the Volvo. One of these days, you will have the whole shooting match to take care of in terms of maintenance, repairs, and insurance. What's to be pissed off about other than the inconvenience it caused you. At least you have something to drive. Be thankful for what you have. You could be on the bus, that would be a bummer.

Re: Don't be pissed off - Life is too short for that
I was not pissed off really, just more mad that it broke. It had been working so well, and had not been in the shop for the longest time, and then bam!

I know I get off lucky when it comes to not having to pay to get the thing fixed, and all of that. And yes, I did get to drive the Probe, this I know.

The thing about the Probe is that it has been cared for much better then my car has (once we got it). Also, it does have a quarter of million miles (wow) less then my car. LOL.

But, hey it's life, and I was not really pissed, but just more mad at the car.
