Lately my car had been acting weird. Kind of sputtering a little when I accelerated. Of course I had $18 to my name all last week so I couldn’t take it in till I got paid. Payday was yesterday and I figured I would take my car in this weekend or Monday or Tuesday to have it looked at. So… I’m on my way back from getting my nails done and the car starts sputtering and jumping and the engine light comes on. Lovely. I made it home. Of course I can’t drive it at this point since it’s doing that.
I’ve had this used 2005 car for about 5 months and I did purchase a warranty through the Credit Union. The problem? They are not open on the weekends and you have to call them first before any work is done. Grrrrrr. Oh well. The dealership was booked today anyway so I booked a 7:30 am appointment for Monday morning. They can shuttle me to work too so that’s nice. Man…. I’m seriously hoping that whatever is wrong with it, is covered on the warranty. I also hope it makes the drive to the dealership.
It’s times like this I really wish I had a man to help me with this kinds of stuff. Not that I expect him to fix the car, but just to… well…. you know.. help me with this crap.
So I’m sure I’ll be strapped for cash again here soon and trapped here in the house all weekend. I HATE this economy. **Oh and anyone judging me for saying I don’t have money and getting my nails done can bite me. My nails and inexpensive makeup are the little pleasures I have in life that don’t cost too much. I don’t own a cell and I don’t drink Starbucks so there!
