car trouble

they're trying to tell me i need ALL NEW exhaust and shit just because one stupid clamp fell off. i'm not stupid. i know exactly what happened. and i know that system isn't more than three years old, so they can just get fucked.

unfortunately, not only did i need new break pads, but also one rotor and the other one had to be ground down. and, as expensive as that is going to be, it's not even half of what they were going to charge me for the exhaust.

lesson learned: don't put the next brake inspection off for three years after i notice a problem.

i think i may have gotten a little carbon monoxide poisoning again last night when i was driving home. i couldn't have been tired enough to be hallucinating again. but i sure do see some funny stuff when i drive at night.

i can't wait to get a new car.
sqeez

grrr

i fucking hate when they don't call to tell you that they're done with your car, especially when they said they would.

jerks.

i really don't feel like walking back over there.

my dad quit his job. i can't quite comprehend this. he's been laid off three times in five years, but i'd never think he'd just up and quit a new job. i don't know why i think that; i do it all the damn time.

i know he's sick of working, especially at jobs he loathes. i know it's hard for him starting new jobs at his age. i'm sure he's tired of taking care of us kids all the time. but they just bought a house and a new truck in the last year. they've got two kids in college (maybe).

i guess my mom's working at the wendy's down there. she hates it.

the day i heard my dad was once again unemployed was the day my summer tuition bill came in. it was hard for me to ask my dad to pay it, but he didn't seem to mind.

god, i just really hate money. more so, i hate my dependence upon it. and my dependence on my parents' money.

at least next semester i'll start getting 80% reimbursement checks from work and i can start paying a little of my own way. even though i should be putting that money away for a car, i can't keep dragging my parents into debt while i dick around at school.
