I hate having car problems. Driving back into town from my Dr’s appointment, the water pump on my trusty rusty F150 decided to go Tango Uniform. Spewed coolant everywhere and a shredded serpentine belt may or may not have cut some hoses to boot. Got a tow to the shop, no one was home to give me a ride so I got to hoof it back home. I’m not used to doing a three mile walk, and the hills in my little town didn’t help matters much. Thank gawd I stopped smoking, tho! I would NOT have made that walk very well if I was still sucking down cancer sticks.
Which leads me to another hate: I hate when I run out of the house without an extra battery. I figured I’d only be gone for an hour, so why stuff more crap into my pocket, right? NOPE. Battery died while I was waiting for the tow truck. _grumble, grumble, grumble,_Which leads to my third hate of the day…
Vape shops and their ridiculous mark up on items. After my truck was towed to the shop, I decided since I was on the hoof for the rest of my journey, I’d splurge and get an extra battery. There’s a vape shop right down the street from the mechanic, and it was on the way, so…serendipity, right? I went in to the shop and asked for their least expensive battery. Samsung 25R for $13.
She then told me that they were having a special, two for $22. No case, tho. That’s another $4.
