My car's been dead for almost 3 weeks now (if not a month).
The mechanic was supposed to fix my car, it was supposed to be ready early this week. I gave him $600 in cash two weeks ago (he came highly recommended by a friend) and I was supposed to pay the remainder once the car was ready.
I called on Tuesday to see the status, and he said he still hadn't ordered the engine, but he would and the car would be ready Friday, and I'd need to bring the rest of the money on Friday.
Now it's Friday, and I've called him, and he _still_ hasn't ordered the engine because he can't order it until I pay him the remainder of the balance.
WHISKY TANGO FOXTROT.
This was my first car (this is what happens when you live in NYC for too long and then go elsewhere), and I guess I just didn't really get auto mechanics. I should have known. And I should have called every day instead of letting things go and calling at the end when I was told it would be ready.
I'm going crazy, I've been weeks without a car, I haven't shopped for food in ages and am completely out of everything at home... grrr.
Sorry for all the ranty/bitchy JEs lately, it's just been a frustrating month for me.
Thanks for pretending to listen ;)
