My car keeps stalling at stoplights.
Like, at first, it would do it like once a week or whatever, and I would just start it back up, no big deal.
But then, it started happening like once a day. And I was like, ‘Hmm, this is kind of annoying, but whateves.’
Now though, it’s pretty much every time I go under 5 mph. Which, you know, is kind of every 45 seconds or so out here in the suburbs.
To be honest, though, even that didn’t really bother me until I had to drive one of my youth students to church, and then starting the car back up at every intersection got kind of embarrassing.
I know, I know. I should take it to a mechanic.
But dudes, I just did that and it cost me like a bazillion dollars, and I’m still paying it off $300 a month at a time, and I won’t finish until March, so I’m trying to hold off on getting anything else fixed until I get that paid off.
And we all know that I automatically assume that if I take my car to a mechanic he/she will find a way to charge me $4,000 to fix whatever the heck is wrong with it. So instead, I’m just going to pretend that this keeps happening because it’s cold outside, and that it — like many of my problems — will go away when summer comes back.
Either that, or by then I’ll have saved up enough for a new car.
