The Crazy Suburban Mom: Gonna toss a lunch monkey

Gonna toss a lunch monkey

We have three cars; a Chrysler Town and Country named Pandora, a 2002 Subaru with 150,000 miles that needs $4500 in repairs and currently  sits at the dealership because that amount of work on a car with *air quote* decent air conditioning *air quote* is so not happening,  and an Altima that just this week had the front bumper hitched back on.

Pandora was out and about car shopping this evening when she, I don't know, took umbrage to a Prius.  

Maybe they traded car insults....  Maybe the Prius made her ass look fat, who knows what cars talk about when your trying to get a sale person to take eight thousand off the top. 

On the way there I heard some high pitched whining and high revs; the next thing I know  Pandora yaks all over the Toyota Dealership. 

 And no.  I'm not kidding.

Triple A's coming to drag her sorry radiator to the dealership.   

How can I own three cars and need three cars?

Damn. I had a friend who used to say "I want a horse to drive. And when he dies, I'm gonna eat him." Yeah, I'm with him. You can't eat Pandora.

Time to junk them all and get bikes for everyone? This is the one reason I'm glad I can't drive.

Ugh I feel your pain, sister. Ed's old beater truck has about 135,000 miles on it and he drives back and forth to work with a couple gallons of water in the cab because his radiator has a giant leak and we can't afford the bill.

Mainly because my 165,000 mile "nice" truck just got 4 tires and all new brakes and rotors (which began to crap out FAST on the drive home from Florida)

Fortunately, the kids flew home with the grandparents, so Ed and I played a game of "lets see how many miles we can safely drive without having to touch the brakes" to minimize the wear on them.

Cars- bah!

You have the worst luck with cars!
