For those who don't know: my car died two weeks ago while we were driving over Chinook pass, two miles from the top so we couldn't coast it down and had two walk a few miles to get cell reception. Luckily one of my coworkers was able to pick us up because mom and dad were on the coast and wouldn't be home for a few more hours x.x
(also i live in the middle of nowhere so there is that)
Anyways it took two weeks and three different mechanics to fix it which....was kind of excessive in my opinion but they couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. (turns out it was the most common problem with subarus all along: A timing belt)
But the mechanics all assumed that the others looked at that first since it was the most obvious thing that they should look at first and it was such a mess.
Unfortunately I had to rent a car for a few days because I had some prior obligations/mom and dad are really adverse to leaving me home alone with no car which again I live an hour away from the nearest town so I feel the apprehension as well and omg those things are so expensive I don't know how people do it often x.x it was like $40 a day and I had it for five days until we found an alternative so yeah don't let your cars break cause that was about an $800 bill that I was so not prepared to pay (the joys of a seasonal job, at least I had one good check after being unemployed for two months but I am really ready for a different job one that is year round and not seasonal and pays twice a month because it is beyond difficult to build up a savings account when you only get paid x amount every 28 days and then have to live on it for two months because places don't like hiring you for only two months...
But after we picked up the car we saw a movie and then a spark plug connector came loose? so the car ran like shit and I pretty much swore enough for five men ( i was beyond livid) luckily papa saved the day - granted he was at the top of the mountain on lightning watch and it took a bit for him to get to town so me and mom got teiyaki and hung out in an empty starbucks parking lot and watched Doctor Who on Netflix because the town dies down and everything is closed by 9......
but yeah I have until September 21st until the season ends and then I am looking at being unemplyed again for two months but for now I have my stupid car back and since this is the third time in two weeks I have been stranded somewhere I should be fine now. (I kind of went to the beach with Bakehebi and we got her car stuck in the sand IN MY DEFENCE I REALLY THOUGHT SAND BEHAVED MORE LIKE SNOW BUT APPARENTLY WHEN YOU DIG IN SAND ALL YOU GET IS MORE SAND AND NOT A SOLID SURFACE...................also never buy a front wheel drive those things suck and so do hondas THAT IS RIGHT HONDAS SUCK SAM I SAID IT.)
