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?
