Bring On The (Rant) Rain!

Since I don't have any income coming in at this time I guess I shouldn't say much about the much that goes on around here but this last much was just too much and since I'm not going to say much... I'll just type it. :-)

Our family car is on its last leg and has been for some time (2 long years) so I patiently wait (with the patience of Job) till we have the means to purchase another, right? The means finally comes and I'm getting my hopes all up that we might at least get an automobile with working AC and perhaps something that was made within this century.

Wrong on both counts.


My roommate goes out and buys (that's right, pays actual money for) a run down (what exactly, I'm not sure) 1992 mound of metal, with no AC (which is the least of its worries) which didn't look too bad from inside the house when I first saw it (you know what they say about first impressions)... so... I walk out, take one close look and stand there in utter shock and disappointment but I hold it in and bravely go open the door to this new evil and, as I do, all previous hope starts squeezing my insides as if trying to escape this mangled moment of madness.


I was not consulted for an opinion prior to purchase, so, why does he ask me now? Why now... when I'm standing here in speechless horror... does he look over at me with this insidious grin on his face and say, "Well... what do you think?"

What do I think?

Should I hit him with it now... or wait till it subsides to a simmering boil?

I would have knocked the crap out of him or better yet, body slammed him through the windshield. That's my story and I'm sticking to it..giggling;)

Pack his stuff and put it in the car? I'd be seriously pissed if someone used any of my money to buy something like that w/o asking.

That sounds so depressing I just wanted to hug you. I hope it gets better. :)

Just remember there are a lot of people who don't even have a car so you are very lucky. I'm sorry, I was just trying to make you feel better but I don't think it worked :)

Roam, Thanks!

Joe, I had the chance but let it slide. Darn it!

Alabama, Oh my! But don't think I didn't think about it. lol.

Rainy Soul, It wasn't exactly MY money he used but yes, the moment was depressing. I try to laugh about it. May as well, eh?

Right you are Kerree. I'm going to try and keep that in mind next time I step anywhere close to that mound of metal. lol.
