Car Insurance...health insurance...both things that are necessary even if, at times, they seem ridiculous. Many times, I have scoffed at my car insurance. No lie. I have wondered what, exactly, this service provides.
My car is an antique. I love Veronica. She is solid, a tank, my savior. Men stop me, repeatedly, in admiration of my volvo. Regardless of the condition...they recognize the rarity of the model. It is a wonderful car.
So, today, I drive to the west valley after spending the beginning of the day with friends in the northeast valley. We toast life, drink bubbles and bid adieu. I head west and when I arrive with a a few bottles of wine to accommodate everyone, I break my key in the door. WTF?
Seriously...Crap! F^&K!!! I am f#*ked. What is the best option? My one friend suggests a lock smith. I know that I will be taken advantage of as it is xmas and so I hope to avoid that option. My other friend mentions that I can stay with her and her boyfriend. I think of what is in my car--glasses, ipod, contact solution and I am sad. I have everything that I would need to stay at her house but no way to access any of those items. F^&K!!!!
I mull it over and realize that I must be an adult. Staying at my friends' house is not an option. Yes, a temporary solution but not a result. I would be stranded, somewhere, relying on public transport or an acquaintance to get me from point a to b.
I call my road side assistance and am told that the guy will agree to making a key for $800.
Wow, really? You think that is agreeable? I was taken aback and horrified that someone would suggest it. Perhaps you weren't interested in work today.
I get it...it's a holiday, christmas (for F*^Ksake) However, it's not like I planned to have a key malfunction. Thankfully, they found another kind person willing to make me a key. Awesome end to a shitty day. Cleanse will be 2014, trip to Denver (january), freedom. I believe in my decisions and support the upcoming choices. Cheers!
