If It Warn't for Bad Luck ...

I'd have no luck at all.

On the way to work yesterday, my transmission stopped shifting. Not a good thing.

By the time I got it to the shop, the darned thing was rolling backwards downhill while in drive. New transmission required.

So now I've got to drive around in a little rollerskate of a subcompact until I can get my ass-kickin' SUV back. No power windows, no power door locks, no power mirrors, no power, period. Gotta mash on the gas pedal to make the damned thing move at all. I actually heard, "You want me to WHAT??" when I first hit the gas on the highway coming from the engine compartment.

Next time someone asks me why I "need an SUV," I'm telling them about this. Oh yeah. How about a little kudos in the RWReport Card in the left sidebar to make me feel better. HAHAHA!
