One of Those Days

I woke up this morning excited that I was finally getting my car back. The excitement turned to horror when they told me how much the repairs cost.

$2489.52

I nearly cried when they told me the total. This has nearly drained my savings account. In the past year I have spent close to $3,500 on a car that is only worth $4,500.

In past year and half I have worked so had to hold every thing together after being laid off twice and now it’s almost all gone.

To add insult to injury when I went to the bank to transfer the funds for the car I was confronted with someone I had a one night stand with last year. Apparently he is the manager there. Thank God he didn't recognize me. I tried to contact him after our tryst but he didn't respond.

Great now I'm broke and a whore. I shouldn't be allowed to show my face in public.

Then at the suggestion of Faggoty Ass Faggot I watched this.

It changed my whole perspective.

Savings come and savings go, debt will eat you alive. So you are actually in better shape than you think.

And, yeah, Secret Simon was really moving. I found him through FAF as well.

I hate cars and gasoline. I love riding my bicycle and taking the public buses and metro trains. So Kill your car the next time it gives you trouble and jump on board the B&M train instead
