I am seriously stressed out today. All afternoon and evening I’ve been trying desperately to stay calm, and avoid a panic attack or better yet, a temper tantrum!
Sunday night on the way home from church my car pooped out on me. Monday morning I took it in to the shop to have it fixed. They weren’t able to even look at it until this morning (Tuesday) when I was informed that my poor car is in need of $1,200 worth of repairs. My clutch is totally shot which costs about $800 to replace and then there is approximately $400 in other “minor” miscellaneous engine repairs. And to make matters worse, they won’t even be able to get the parts in until Thursday and so I may not have the car back until Friday!
Fortunately for me, my parents have quite generously offered me the use of their car for the time being, so that I will be able to get back and forth to work.
***Don’t worry, I’ve done my research. I’m not getting completely screwed over! I actually know the owner of the auto repair shop, he’s one of my clients.***
