Okay, maybe it doesn't take all that temper tantrum stuff, but danggit! My truck is having issues! AND RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!
Okay, so I'm already on a strict budget. Already having to leave people off this year. Already having to cut back on gift prices. And THEN this?!?!?! Are you kidding me?
I thought I had it all figured out, the Christmas budget and all. Had enough to get most people a little something. I was starting to smile, even though I was still in a Baa Humbug mood, but it was starting to feel good to know that I wasn't straining my budget that bad.
Then, coming home from Walmart yesterday, the Gator started sputtering. Immediately I call Hubs and let him know that something doesn't sound right.
"I'll check it tonight, call me and let me know you made it home."
I hang up and it gets worse. Every time I push the gas, it sputters. For a minute I think that I might not make it. I'm not use to having car trouble. I know the Gator is a '98 but she has only had to be put in the shop twice since we got her 4 years ago, and those were pretty minor issues.
So it sounds like spark plugs. I just had those replaced back Feb of '97. And I simply can't afford to have them done right now! Not when I haven't finished my Christmas shopping!
But, guess what? I HAVEN'T FINISHED MY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING! I NEED my truck to get around. I still have to shop for my moms gifts to the boys as she thought it would be better for ME to do HER shopping because, well, I don't have a job and have more time. HA! Sure!
And now I don't have no car! (Yeah I used and oxymoron. Shoot me!)
So yes! SCREAM SCREAM! YELL! POUT! CRY! seemed appropriate at the moment. Except I left out the part where I fell out on the floor kicking and banging my fists on the floor yellin' "WHY!!!!!!!!"
