My Car [Jan. 4th, 2002|04:13 pm]
Peter Sheil
My car broke down this morning on the way in to work. It has a broken cam-belt and probably won't be driveable for a couple of weeks. I have a hire car, eventually. Good thing it's a company car.

After that I just couldn't resist the test :) and it got it right!

My car is 0 - 15% dependable.

My car is a complete piece of shit, but at least it was cheap. I obviously can't be a self-respecting individual if I am showing my face around town in this thing. I will try selling it for $5 or so, and if I succeed, I will buy a tricycle because it will probably get me around faster anyway.

Thanks Melissa

as it is a company car it doesn't cost me anything, except on my income tax :( It is just a pain losing half a day 'cos of it.

(hugs) right back, but still gently :)
take care yourself and get yourself back to good health

At least you have a car! Even though it is a piece of crap, and it's worth LESS than a tricycle! *sigh* i will have one soon...

Actually my car is quite nice - it is a 4 door hatchback [do you call them that over there?], white and usually goes quite well. As it is a company car I now have a replacement hire car but it is a small tin box of a car and the seat hurts my back.

In the UK we can't start learning to drive 'till we are 17 and only pass the test and drive alone when we are 18. So I guess you are luckier over in the US to start so young - but then the standard of driving is different between the two countries is quite different - I'll leave you to guess which one I think is higher :)
