Okay, so the kids are out of school for the next two days. My mother decides this would be the perfect time for a little visit...nevermind she was just here last week. Well wouldn't you know it our van decides to squeal like a stuck pig while in first and second gear. So, I take it to the dealer, where (I'm assuming out of fear) the thing doesn't make a peep.
After an hour of waiting in the lobby, they graciously give me a rental. A friggin' Neon...did I mention I have two kids? I don't complain, but tool on home, in the tiny little sports car. After I chew out my husband, for making me go in the first place, we get a phone call...the transmission's going out. They need the van for "a few days." Now, I like to keep on the sunny side of life, so think this is the perfect out for having to visit my mom. I mention to the the service guy that I was planning to make a trip, but couldn't possibly do so with the loaner car.
He says, 'sure you can!'
So there you have it. It will be me, two whining kids in a car the size of a Hot Wheels for a three hour tour. Urgh...I hate school holidays.
Until next time...
