    OK so i got an interesting text today, my stepmom sayin "hey, when are you gonna come get this car out of my driveway."

    sounds simple, but it means a lot of youre in my situation.

    OK so i was making arrangements to have my car fixed locally. yes it would have cost way way more, but it would have been much easier, and i would have had a week of down time...im at almost 2 months now. why? because my dad said "oh no, thats a terrible idea. bring it over here, ill fix it"

    well in 2 months he has done nothing. school has started, level III nursing school, its insane, so far im there everyday 9-4, and 7-7 on weekends, any day i have off, has been consumed by a 16 hour shift at the hospital because my dad believes in being self reliant. thats ok with me, i believe in that too, but if you expect me to support myself, dont bitch that i work all the time. secondly, his excuse for not working on the car is that hes been working a lot...well so have i, and its a 70 mile drive each way to work on my car...its in his driveway.

    so now im getting shit from them for it not being fixed, when hes the one who offered to fix it. So day after tomorrow im going to go undo all my work so far, put it back in rolling condition, and take it somewhere else. friend of the family with a shop, where hopefully i can get it knocked out...he has a lift, equipment and knowledge. hopefully he wont charge me out the ass.

    This is why I live by my new motto when someone ALWAYS has an excuse:

    I tell them:

    INSERT BULLSH!T EXCUSE HERE __________________.

    Oh how many folks I have offended with that saying.

    *sniff* yeah i thought so too

    it really scuffed the right rear one up bad so the entire set wasn't salvagable, endend up selling them on the car for 800 bucks, which i HUGELY regret btw, shoulda kept it for parts and saved at least a thousand later

    ok so i went home, put it all back together...actually only took about an hour...with shit being bent, the K-member doesnt line up on the passenger side...but it is on the drivers, and the suspension is hooked up on both, so i think itll be ok to roll on the trailer, and back off.

    Well my dad showed up, and at first was kinda pissed, but then before i could get to why i was taking it somewhere else, he admitted he felt it was too much for us to do without a lift and more equipment. So, yeah, got it back together, going to the other guy this weekend....depending on if he fixes it, or makes me do it...i should get the car back this month!!!!

    Well fuck me sideways.

    Like i said 2 weeks ago, I went and put my car back together. my mom said that once I got it back together, she'd call Baker, our body shop guy. and he'd work with me to fix the car.

    I deal with dad, she deals with baker right?

    ok so my dad offers to take it to Baker, tryin to help out, convenient cuz its at his house. Well he just took it over there. And Baker had no idea what he was talking about, he didnt even know I had wrecked my car, much less had anyone said anything about bringing it over. So now I gotta call my mom and see wtf shes doing.

    DAMN IT!!!!

    she said she thought i was gonna come in and help move it, which i was, but my dad never called me. she was gonna call baker while we were on our way, which is pretty dumb.

    well now baker doesnt want to fix it....he has a body shop, wtf. him and my grandad are real good friends, and my grandad doesn't think i should fix it, so hes telling baker to not fix it, but its my car, and my money.

    But baker is taking it too seriously, he wants to take it to a frame shop to make sure its straight and all that shit. I know thats a good thing, but shit, its a 95 V6, wrecked, 115k. itll have un matching wheels, busted dash, and cracked windshield. if its a little out of alignment, i think itll be ok. i just need it to run for 9 more months
