I've spent the day dealing with, or waiting on, car things. I took my car to the body shop this morning, per appointment. Turns out things had not quite been settled with the insurance company. I talked to the company, and then headed home, planning to reschedule. I'd gone only a couple of blocks, when the insurance company called back and okayed everything, and that they'd talked to Enterprise about a car. Sighhhhhhhh
So I turned around and went back to the shop. Eventually the guy from Enterprise came to pick me up. BUT, it turned out they didn't have a car ready, so they were just going to take me back home - to be picked up later. That was abut 9:30 this morning. I called about 3:30, and was told it shouldn't be too much longer. Yeah, right! At least I didn't have anything major planned for today. They finally came about 4:30. At least I didn't have to take the delivery guy back - another car came with him to do that.
So now I have a car - 2015 Camry - very nice. The delivery guy made a point of telling me to return it "empty". OK, so I don't put gas in it when I take it back. When I took it to my parking space, I realized that it was already on "empty". Well, crap! I'm out so early in the morning, I didn't want to deal with it then. So after supper, I went to Walmart to gas it up.
So much for car days!
