You’ll never guess who tried to head out of town around 9am today and had major car problems. And is now back at her house waiting on her brother, who was half way to Beaumont and had to turn around and come back.
I checked all my fluids and got everything ready to go last night. Woke up this morning and got the car all loaded. Backed out of the garage to spot a HUGE puddle of OIL on the ground. So I get out of the car and see oil streaming out from under my car. CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP.
I took off to Firestone and had them look at it to see why it’s leaking and they find some cooling line has cracked. And it’s a special part that has to come direct from the dealership. And of course, the parts and service place at Mazda is closed. SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT.
Luckily, Duckie, who was supposed to leave yesterday, had decided to wait and head out this morning so we could kind of follow each other. Since he lives across town, we decided we’d meet up about an hour south of Dallas. It’s all interstate from there. He ended up getting on the road a lot earlier than me and was already there when I called to tell him I was leaving. So he’s got a good hour on me.
Then, I see the crap in my car and all and call him back and tell him to drive slower. lol Another hour later and he is now almost back to Dallas. Should be here in a bit so we can move all my crap to his truck and head out again.
So now I don’t know if I will be coming back with him on Monday or if my dad is gong to be able to loan me something to drive back. And then I have the whole getting-the-car-fixed crap to deal with. It’s probably going to cost more than that POS is worth.
Ok, I’m done bitching. Merry Christmas! 😛
