All better, car-wise

I got the car back this morning, after getting a ride from my nephew. The service rep apologized for not calling, although he didn't really apologize for the lack of courtesy van coverage late yesterday -- too much traffic, he said. (Huh?) But I had a really hard time working up a righteous anger, because the final bill came to $140 less than the estimate. Ultimately, no harm, no foul, I guess. (Which I just realized must be a basketball analogy; does it translate if you don't know the sport?) Now my car runs more smoothly and quietly, and more importantly, it's not sitting someplace where I can't get to it. And I'm sitting in an air-conditioned office on a 95-degree, ozone action day. So, no more complaining from me.

Well, you know, about this. All other complaints about the world as it is still apply.

Good to hear. I always love it when the car repair bill comes under what the estimate was.

Thanks. It's one of those little joys in life, paying less than one expects.
