Much Appreciation

Good Morning People,

I want to thank you for your encouraging posts yesterday. Both make very good points. My mother use to say, when you feel bad, get a good, good cry, then take a deep breath. Then put a cold towel on your face and keep moving. Crying can be a very good thing.

Awh, yes! The car has been an extremely exhausting task. Mechanics are constantly trying to rip people off, especially women. When I was married, we went through the whole rip off process with a transmission. It was replaced but fell apart again. When we went back to the same mechanic, he had closed up his shop and disappeared...that was after he had given us the run around & all kinds of excuses. Turns out, when we took him to court, there was a long, long line of people after him. We won by default, but we were told, more than likely, we'd never see our money. That was back in 1995. Apparently, he would close one shop and open another under a different name and had been doing it for many years. Definitely a good point about being exhausted from getting the car repaired.

I agree, crying can certainly be a good thing. It's a great way of letting go of all bottled up emotion.

I have heard countless stories of phoney mechanics and car cheats. I always go by recommendation now. It's the only way xx

Yikes! That super sucks. Hope you get your car together soon and with someone who isn't gonna end up screwing you around. You're absolutely right, mechanics do think all women know nothing about cars, I've had that experience in which I've had to set them straight in some areas, like CHANGING OIL!! Lol.

I'm all for the crying too. There is nothing more refreshing than a good cry.
