Testing the Law of 3's
So far I'm up to 2.
The first was the untimely death of the Keurig coffee machine. This morning I had to make a cup of tea before work. Blahhh, tea is for after supper, not the kick in the pants you need in the morning. Plus there was the unplanned expense of a replacement machine.
But I am happy to report that as I write this post I am sipping a hot coffee from the NEW Keurig machine.
Then last night I jumped in the car to grab something at the convenience store. When I parked back in the yard I couldn't get the car door open. I pushed the power locks on and off and then pushed and pushed.
A brief second of panic. I'm locked INSIDE the car. Seriously?? Yes, locked IN the car. For a minute I thought about Lauren who recently posted about a funny newspaper headline about a hooker. And I imagined the front page of the local Daily News - - "Hooker Locked Inside Car". Lol
As I mulled over my situation I said a tiny little prayer that it was only the drivers side door. (It was) Had it been all 4 doors, that would have been a very entertaining call to OnStar. Sheesh!
So my only option was to crawl over into the passenger side - over the console and the shifter. Can you picture it? Oh yeah, I was graceful as a gazelle as a tried to straddle my way over. I was enacting a few Cirque du Soleil moves......(Ouch)
Sure, you're laughing - but try to do that in high heel boots. This morning I went to work early so there would be no witnesses in the parking lot as I performed my graceful moves yet again.
I called the Dealership and they had an appointment late this morning. And yes, I had to do it again - in front of the service crew. And yes, they giggled. Just grateful I wasn't wearing a skirt!! They did (mockingly) offer to pull me out through the window. I declined.
The door was under warranty but I still ended up leaving another $350. The Visa Card was smoking today.
Lets hope this is the end of the unplanned expenses for awhile. The Law of 3's - Pffft!
