Choosing A Car

519535_silver_boxterI am unwillingly in the market for a new car. I say that because the one I am driving now is falling apart on me. Last month I put a nice chunk of my paycheck into getting it fixed and back on the road and now it is acting up again. The engine is making a noise that can only be described as a wild banshee screaming so I know it isn’t going to be good. I’m taking it tomorrow to have my guy look at it but unless it is something simple it is getting scrapped. I can take the bus to work and rely on my parents or brother Andrew to get me around until I find something else. I am not too picky so I am sure it won’t take me long to find one. I just need something that gets good gas mileage and doesn’t have a lot of miles and I’m set.

I’ll also get cheap car insurance on whatever I get like I always do. I only drive to work and back and it is a straight shot down the highway for me. I also want to get something reliable as I don’t want to go through this mess again. I wish I could go back in time and get another Dodge Dart which was the first vehicle that I owned. That thing was a tank and never gave me any issues. I kept up on the maintenance on it and drove it for like 5 years with no issues besides the usual belts and brakes and stuff like that. I actually looked for one when I was shopping last time and they are hard to come by especially in good shape.

Besides that I am also going through some issues at work lately. I don’t know what has gotten into my boss but he has been acting weird lately. I thought I was just imagining it but Margaret said she noticed it, too. It is like he is out to prove something but what and to whom I have no idea. I tried to talk to him about it but he didn’t want any part of that conversation. My best guess is he is having issues in his marriage or at home in some way and is taking it out on us guys at work. There are 10 of us that work under him and everyone there feels the same way as I do. I have been there the longest and am the most senior guy so everyone looks to me for an answer that I don’t have.
