When it Rains it Pours...

Just have to vent for a minute because I'm extremely pissed off.
So my car took a big old sh*t on me a couple weeks ago when the intake gasket blew and allowed coolant to leak all over the place causing it to overheat. Luckily I caught it and got it fix before any more damage was done. Then the very day I get it back. I am leaving to head home and the damn thing dies on me. Turns out the crank shaft sensor went out. Not a big deal, but still a few more days without a car and about another $60. Well this morning my wife woke me up to tell me her car wouldn't start, and once it finally did, it would sputter and blow clouds of white smoke out the exhaust. Probably a blown head gasket leaking coolant into the engine. So after I get my car back I'll be dropping who knows how much to get her car, which happens to be our family car, fixed... Then after finding out about all of that this morning, the **** tornado sirens start going off in my town... Time to head for the closet! No tornado at my house luckily, but crazy weather all over around here and now I'm at work. WHAT A **** DAY!

    Damn dude, you must have pissed off the big man upstairs for all that. At least the storm has sorta blown over, now get out there and smoke a cigar!

    I will tomorrow once I'm off work and take the mother-in-law to the airport. Probably catch a short nap and fire up a smoke during the afternoon football game. I think it's probably your fault about the weather! It followed you back from Lubbock! haha

    OUCH, sorry to hear that! Sometimes it just goes like this, hang in there, it WILL get better, although, experience tells me it may get worse first. Sorry, but, deep breaths, faith, it WILL get better.

    At least I've got a few good cigars and a bottle of scotch waiting on me at home. I'm thinking I'll try the new La Aurora 107... That should numb the pain a little.

    Thanks everyone for the wishes, and it continues... Got my car out of the shop and it ran great for about a day, then started running rough, check engine light came on, and died just before getting back to the mechanic... Fun fun!

    what kind of car? Sounds like a real headache.
  • PuroFreakPuroFreak Posts: 4,132
    It's an 01 Chevy Blazer. Just found out it spun a rod bearing. The worst part is that the engine is only about 2 years old. I believe it is still under warranty so this shouldn't be a problem, but it still pisses me off and I'm still without my damn car...

    Just wanted to request some thoughts and prayers for my wife and family. We just found out her grandmother is about to pass away. Her kidneys are shutting down and she only has a few days to live. She lives in Florida and we are of course in Texas, and with both cars broken down it is not a good time around here. My wife's mother if flying here tomorrow and they are going to rent a car and take off driving Wednesday morning for Florida. Needless to say I'm pretty worried about my wife, her mother, and our 2 year old driving that far on their own, but I can't get off work so don't really have a choice right now... Just asking for prayers and thoughts for them to make a safe trip. Thanks everyone.

    Well my wife and son are now home and safe! They arrived around noon today and I am very happy! My lil one is asleep in his own bed now and my wife's mom and her boyfriend are here. I have to take them to the airport around 3:00am so I have a few hours to kill... The days of peace and quiet around the house were nice, but I'm glad it's over!

    Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers!
