Anything I might have said about getting off easy with our car, I take back. We are now going on 4+ weeks of problems and we're up around $1400 in repair bills. Why the heck does it always happen that the car breaks down and has problems all at once? And why is it that you ALWAYS feel like you are being jerked around? Shouldn't there be a resource that tells you what you OUGHT to be paying for different parts/repairs? The FAIR cost? I mean, what do I know? They may be totally ripping us off and I would just go along with it because I need the stupid car, wracking up more bills we can't afford and biting the bullet.
I need a job. And fast. I hope this baby comes out healthy and patient and willing to let his mom even GET a job. I swear, just when you think things are going well, you scrimp and save and go for the good deals, and then you get a big stupid bill on a big stupid car which will probably break down again in another big stupid week. Grrrrrrrr.
I usually try to let these sorts of things roll off my back. But I HATE HATE HATE working so hard to save money just to throw it all at your stupid vehicle.
