Dante is making a funny noise.

At first it was amusing like an added scratch to my excessively loud sound system. Now its just annoying. Pops read me the riot act this morning, about taking it in for repairs.

I dread taking my car in for repairs.

Not only for the fact that it usually costs me hundreds of my hard earned dollars, but also for the fact that I always leave with the feeling that I am getting ripped off big time.
Its like they see a little girl, and say ‘Wohoo, let’s see what we can sell her today.’ And for the most part their manipulation is warranted. I know nothing about cars. Except that I like to drive shinny two door ones in pretty colors.

Another reason I need a boyfriend. Or more Gumption.


Ps: That's me in front of Dante, poser that I am.

Adrian said...

Don't worry I always feel ripped off too and I think I have some clue about cars.

Leon said...

Worse if you've got an expensive car. You named your car? Well, if you're gonna, Dante is a pretty cool name.

bitsandgiggles said...

Good luck. I always feel like I'm getting ripped off too. But then, so do all of the guys I know. Must be the industry.

Marika said...

Young lady, you are way too dressed up to be going for a drive down to the shops. Lovely dress, and lovely car.

I know what you mean. The first time I had my car serviced after moving interstate, I rang the place to book it in and when they asked me what kind of car, I replied "a white one". That service cost me $450 in things I'd never heard of. I'm all for feminism, but when it comes to automobiles, have a bloke with you at all times!

Bush Babee said...

Forgive me for this but I think you're hot! The dress is bangin' and you're striking a serious pose. I'm surprised no one else has said it.

Oh yeah, get your car fixed!

Holla

since your father is the one making the big to-do, make him take the car in for the servicing. You pay, but make him take it.

Kingston Girl said...

I'm with gc - make your dad go with you. I have no clue about cars either other than i like small and cute ones that go vroom vroom!

My car gave wifey some trouble while I was away the last time. When she got the list from the mechanic I actually had to call him from New Jersey and sort him out. Bill reduced by half. Needless to say he is no longer my mechanic. Hope Dante gets sorted out soon.

SimplEnigma said...

CP, you're beautiful. Go you! :)

I know how you feel. Everytime I see a mouse or have to hang shelves, I think I should get me a boyfriend too.

You should have your dad take it in.

Christina_the_wench said...

Look at you working it! I agree. Just nice dress and the car looks fine too.

I just dropped $550 on a new water pump and timing belt. Still need a new engine as one of the cylinders is not firing. Yeah. I am looking for some KY right now. Good luck!

Gooders Girl said...

Girl then learn about cars!!!

Then wear something short and tight. They will be more likely to rip you off less.

Offering you a good deal will allow them to buy into the fantasy you might go on a date with them!

The OE said...

You're lucky you don't have an Aston Martin. It's in the shop so often I need two. Maybe it isn't as much the car as it is the quick getaways from enemy forces.

SimplEnigma said...

LMAO @ Gooders Girl...

Hey it worked for Christie Brinkley in Uptown Girl...well, actually it worked for Billy Joel.

Trouble said...

Car? What car?

gela said...

hehe, gooders is something else. Then post a bigger pikcha nuh? chuups. Is where yu off to dressed like a real hottie? :)

Hate going to mechanic too. Always imagine them saying, oh thank God, this month's rent will be paid from her bill alone.
