yesterday i realised my car's brakes were dodgy so today i didnt want to drive it. lucky for me my friend who went to scotland left her car here. "i'll drive that" i thought.
i got a few blocks and the kill switch killed it. didnt know there was a kill switch. found kill switch. drove on. e-tag is in my car. pay toll in cash. toll booth wont let me through. find another dollar. i am now paying $5 to go to work.
finish work. cant start car. think it's the immobilizer. cant figure out how to fix it. jump out. lock car. unlock. start over. repeat. and repeat. and repeat. car miraculously starts.
go to shops for a quick errand. car wont start. try the whole jump out scenario. still wont start. call brother for technical advice. i've already tried all his ideas. call home. ask to use second immobilizer thingy down phone. it locks and unlocks car but car still wont start. liam runs about 3km to bring second set of keys. still wont work. call hubby who is not happy. wait for hubby. mr fixit cant start it either.
call road service. "this is not my car, can you come anyway?"
"the car is covered, a mechanic will be with you within the hour"
