2nd Opinion

Always get a 2nd opinion. Always.

As I mentioned before the car is needing some repairs and Ben took it to a garage on Wednesday. They called him and said it would be between $900 and $1200 to fix!!

He took it to a second place yesterday and they said it would cost quite a bit to fix. $450!

It is booked in for Monday to get the work done and Ben will collect it Tuesday morning. It is staying at the garage until the work is done as it isn't really advisable to drive it until it is repaired. So no car this weekend. We just need to find the $450. Who needs food anyway?!

  1. WOW! That's a pretty big difference. So glad you got a second opinion, 'cause as expensive as $450 is, $1200 would be even harder to spend out of the blue like that! Of course there's people who spend that on a handbag without thinking twice about it. Ah, to be one of those. My dream bag, a Balenciaga satchel, retails for $1600 and above. I guess I'd have to sell it to fix the car in this case ;-)


14 year olds & Green Cards

Did you know that you need to get a new green card when you turn 14? Do you know the reason why? No really, I'd like to know why. ...
