This is not how I envisioned my day. It started out with getting up super early to drive to Troy to get Andrews car out of the shop. He certainly didn’t have the amount of money it took to have it fixed, and because he had been driving H’s truck, we had to switch vehicles with him anyway.
After we shelled out the moolah, H took the car for a spin to check the outcome. Everything seemed to be in working order, so like bandits in the night, we made the great car switch with Andrew. Seems like we’ve recently pulled this job before.
Not to be late, off to work he sped, ten minutes away. Then a few minutes later, the call came. “My car is making a terrible racket. It sounds as though something fell off underneath and is dragging on the ground.”
He got out and pushed whatever it was back up and continued on his way. We were still in Troy so we ate lunch, then drove to Zion Chapel and switched vehicles with Andrew – again.
Now we are back at the mechanic shop so they can put the clips back on the wheel well. Sigh…
We are sitting cautiously, in this waiting room, on a couch, that has seen better days. It looks like the ones you spot on people’s front porches, when they have no clue of how unsanitary that is – or how tacky.
What a day this has been! And where does all this traffic come from in Troy, AL?
