Having a car is actually kind of a pain in the ass. All it takes is one little thing to go wrong and then you're bollocksed financially.

Incomplete list of expenses from my vehicle to date: having the gas line repaired (twice), having the brakes done, getting towed out of the ditch, replacing the fuse for the fan what cools the engine, bolting the gas tank up when the mounting brackets fell off (my boyfriend and brother did this one for free), replacing the lowbeams that burned out... totalling over 1100 dollars which is more than I paid for the car.

That's not including new oil and filter, windshield washer fluid, coolant, or the pair of vice grips which replaced the handle for the window when I broke it off. Or insurance, the fee to get the registration transferred (which was nominal), or gas for the damn thing.

Now I have to get the tires changed and rotated, the alignment fixed (car always wants to go right) and new wiper blades.

Don't buy a car unless you absolutely have to.

Him: "Very good idea."
Her: "Next thing: hands."
