I reported a few bad news last week. I did find out a solution to a few of them. Tomorrow I am going to publish a mammoth post on how this blog affected my at-work performance. I request you to come for that article tomorrow.
Our older car, 2002 Hyundai Elantra, finally gave in. The cheap car with cheap parts has its limitation. With KBB value of $2,800, I am not at all fond of shelling out $2,500 towards fixing my engine, radiator, AC belts, and a new battery.
I am eyeing for a Toyota or Honda used-car as the replacement. I spoke to a few friends and colleagues. I may get one by March second week. Until that happens, SMB has to wake up early and drop me to the office and every evening she has to pick me up from work.
Naturally, I am not as complaining about the car problem as she is doing. Yes, it’s a monetary loss of a $1,500 (after factoring in resell price of $1,000) but, I had that money saved anticipating a breakdown. I vowed not to own another Hyundai ever.
