Well, my 10-year old car is starting to make decisions that could alter our relationship.
First, she decided to die in the middle of my 10-year anniversary evening. As you can see in the comments to this post, my MOTHER actually wrote a comment telling me to dump the car. The car's brakes went out. When Jenn went to get the oil changed and tires aligned, they made her sign a waiver because the oil wouldn't register on the stick and the tires were too worn to align. While at the oil changing joint, someone HIT the car. Now, the stupid vent fan won't operate again in the low setting (I've had this problem before – $19 fixes it).
Total expenses since September 2006 have been around $1,200 (around $120/month).
I was wondering, if your 66-year-old mother tells you "ON THE INTERNET" "THROUGH YOUR BLOG" to get rid of the car, should you?
