#ThrowbackThursday – Stranded European Style

This post originally appeared 2/8/07.  I had purchased a new car and it was a lemon.  I asked my husband to pick me up and he told me only if we could take some pictures.  Can you believe that?   Each Thursday I post of material on my site that came out before I seriously used this blog in 2012.

STRANDED EUROPEAN STYLE

So while I might not be a high maintenance wife, my car sure can be.  Of course it is usually worth it.  I love the looks I get.  The only problem with some European cars is that getting the right people to service them is the issue.  I have to take my car back to the dealer.  I’m not always sure though that it is a good thing when they know your name.  Well the worse part of all is that one you turn in one car for fixing, it isn’t like they have another $100,000 car sitting on the lot for you to borrow.  So it was up to me to find my own way home.  Lesson #2, don’t leave your cell phone in your car when getting it fixed.  I had no way to call home.

Ugh and I turned in my car at rush hour.  I was surely not going to take the bus!  I needed a pay phone.  CARE TO LEND A STRANDED GAL A LIFT?
