Car Repairs (again)

Written By: Gary on November 23, 2005 No Comment

So my car has been making some funny noises up front lately. Guess where I am? I’m waiting at Belle Tire to see what’s wrong with it. It’s something up front and with the tires or alignment or steering or something

We’ll see how it goes. It’s a little busy here, probably some people who want to get their car fixed before they travel for the holiday. I’ve spent $700-ish each of the last two times I had service so I’m hoping it’s not too bad. It’s only a 2000 so it’s not that old, it’s at 56,000 miles and I take pretty good care of it (oil, tires, brakes, etc.).

FYI – Michael Moore is on the television in the waiting room (it’s like a hospital, we’re all just waiting to hear how bad the news is). IT’s some C-Span broadcast from Mott Community College in Flint, Michigan from last Sunday. He’s such a dork. I’m not talking about his views (I wasn’t listening that much) just that he’s a goof (very gracious though).

So as I’m writing the previous sentence he’s started talking with the sign interpreter on the stage making her do “tricks” showing different signs and such. Not really appropriate, it’s not why she’s there. At least it’s not in my experiences with deaf culture. Maybe it’s different since she’s doing the television show but I’m thinking it’s not.

So my ears just picked up a bit. He’s talking about the auto companies and how foreign cars last so much longer and how/why the american car companies are closing things down (lots of closing and layoffs in the Detroit/Flint area lately, with more soon). My car is not foreign although I’ve had to do very little service on foreign cars I’ve owned.
