First it was the ADSL modem, then it was the stove. And to complete the trio of pricey and/or downright frustrating mishaps was my car. Actually when it comes to my car… this is the unexpected repair bill too (this year).
I was running some errands, and my car was making a horrible noise that steadily got worse. So I drove it to Midas while praying that it wouldn’t break down on the way. Where I was greeted by Brian trying to crack a joke about me coming to see him again. And the eventual bad news that I was going to yet have another repair bill.
My car is getting old. I’ve had it for five years and probably would have thought about replacing it by now if I didn’t have a
financial noose around my neck mortgage. It’s not entirely off the agenda but I will have to save some money and pay extra off my principal now to get it.
- Maybe I should just tithe 10% of my salary direct to his bank account to cover repairs.
- Or I should try harder to win either a new car which of course is the lazy way of getting one.
Either way, I think I have to add Brian to my christmas card list.
