Always something *sigh*

12 Aug

The car we have isn’t the greatest. I know nothing about cars so I can’t give you details or explain why things in the car do what they do but this is what I can say…It is loud. No point in trying to talk while in it and I don’t even know why he bothers to put on the radio. The AC does not work, I can usually deal with that but there are just some days I feel like I am dying in that car. The trunk is ruined, somehow, and it is impossible to put anything in it so when we go grocery shopping we have to pile everything in the back seat (of a 2 door car, so it is very annoying) and it stalls in rain puddles, which we usually try to avoid but sometimes we just can’t. Like a couple of weeks ago as we were going home for lunch we hit some water we could not avoid, had we been able to keep going straight home, which was right around the corner by that point, we would have been fine and the car would have stalled in our garage and dried out by the time we’d have to go back to work…But no, that would be too easy. Instead there was a lot of traffic (which was unusual) and we had to stop and we stalled right in the middle of the road. Thankfully a very nice man helped us push it off the street and out of the way and then Ken pushed it on his own towards the house while I steered…Poor Ken, he over did it.

So to make things worse; today while we were at work Kens grandpa was leaving to head out somewhere and he sideswiped our car. The passenger side is destroyed and we can’t open the door.

Well I can say this much for the car, it is still running. Which is a good thing since we have no money and public transportation is pretty much non-existent out here. But the whole not being able to open the door thing is a pain in the ass. Maybe I should just keep the window down and slide into it like they did on The Dukes of Hazard.

    The sliding sounds like a plan…at least no one will be screaming, “shotgun!” ….more like, “not it!” šŸ™‚

      LOL! Unfortunately I am the one who typically rides in the passenger seat…Maybe I will try the sliding into it tomorrow. šŸ˜‰
