Remember that self-indulgent whine from the other day? You know, the “wah-I don’t feel like I belong” navel gazing, pretentious emo tripe?
Well, the universe reminded me why you should never give in to the urge to mope so unabashedly. Nothing good can come of it.
There I was, Wednesday morning, trolling along, minding my own business, and on my way to the shop with my car for regular maintenance type crap. Halfway up a hill, momentum suddenly stopped. My foot was still on the gas. The engine was still spinning. The car was slowing down.
The transmission on my car blew out around the corner from the shop I was taking it to for an oil change and a tire rotation. Beautiful.
Do you have any idea how much a new transmission costs? Well, decidedly less than a whole new car, so I’m going to have to figure out a way to pay for it. And the extra fun is that I have to wait for it to get here. I shouldn’t get my car back for another week.

i’m sorry, that sucks balls. on a related note, i was going to take my car in to get what sounds like a loose belt fixed, when my brakes started grinding. there goes $300+ out the door. 😦
Yes, cars are the most evil things that know exactly when it is most inconvenient, and then they suck all your money out.
