Bad Car Karma
Bah, only four months after my last bout of car problems, I was struck again. Coming home from my folks after an awsome chicken dinner, just hitting the bypass the car stalled. Luckily right at a light, so after a couple of minutes of asking it really nicely to turn over, I pushed it off the road. After a bit more hoping, cursing, and pumping the gas, with no better results, I called in BCAA, thankful again that I pay my money each year Just In Case™. Tow truck dude arrived quickly and told me “it’s your timing belt.”
Words to strike fear into the hearts of most people who have been told at one point or another “timing belts are really expensive.” So dude was nice enough to drop us off at the bottom of the hill and took the car onto the Honda place. So I’m carless until I can get it fixed, which hopefully will be tomorrow, and hopefully I won’t have to sell a kidney to afford it.
More proof that I should never be allowed anywhere near any sort of hardware of any kind.
