Rant #1,215: Nothing Accomplished
It was nice being off of work for the Memorial Day holiday.
It allowed me a little time to breath, something I really haven't had the opportunity to do since my car accident a few weeks ago.
It was great having a barbecue yesterday, and really kicking off what I hope to be a nice summer for myself and my family.
However, my main goal was not reached this weekend.
I still do not have a car.
Due to one thing or another, I don't have a vehicle yet.
My family and I went to the car dealership early Saturday afternoon, and we literally went back and forth with them for more than four hours.
We were then told that the paperwork would not be completed that day, since it was leading into the holiday, and that we would have to come back on Tuesday.
This further fouled me up, as we then had to use my wife's car to get to a wedding we were invited to on Sunday evening.
I don't mind driving my wife's car, but it is a Jeep, and honestly, it is a gas guzzler, and since the wedding was quite far away, it guzzled and guzzled some more.
On top of that, I have to rely on others today to get me to work and to the dealership after work, something that I don't like to do.
And on top of that, I had to cancel an important dentist appointment that I had scheduled for tonight.
So right now, I am not a happy camper by any stretch of the imagination.
But what can you do? I did everything possible to have a car in my possession this weekend, but it simply did not get done.
I didn't sleep well last night, thinking of all of this nonsense, so I am pooped along with everything else.
Let's see what happens today.
Hopefully, everything will be in place, and I will get that car that I so desperately need.
But nothing is guaranteed.
Until they tell me that I have a car, and I drive away from the dealer, I can't be sure that this transaction will be completed today, or any day.
Keep your fingers crossed. Mine will be, and won't be uncrossed until I have that car and drive away with it into the sunset.
And no, that car that is pictured above is not the car I am going for. That was one of the limousines from the wedding we went to.
I hope the occupants had a nice drive. All of this nonsense is driving me to drink, it really is.
