I Hate Everyone*
I had yet another root canal today.
And yesterday? My friendly mechanic told me my car needed $2,300 in repairs. That's on top of the $2,300 I paid him LAST MONTH, when I said, as I handed over the dough, "Now before I invest this much, are you sure this car won't need any other GIANT repairs anytime soon? Because if it might, if there's even the SLIGHTEST chance, then maybe I should NOT have all this work done now."
It's just like talking to the dentist!
I think if I went into this garage for a flat tire, they'd charge me $2,300.
It's a blown gasket, whatever that means. I practically blew a gasket. So, what to do? Throw more money down the rabbit hole, cuz it's still cheaper than a car payment? I don't want more debt, I just paid off this car loan. I could buy a Vespa, my secret desire.
Although I'm pretty sure I'd be run over by a suburban Bethesda Mom in her Hummer, latte in one hand, cell phone in another, lipstick in the third.
And to top everything off, because of that stupid root canal, I missed the chance tonight to meet the Rich Hungarian Older Gentleman my girlfriend has been trying to set me up with for months!
Calling Tom and Ray.
