Gremlins

Damn you!

Well it looks like I may not get to buy anything with my bonus cash now. The fucking car has decided it's going to bleed me dry.

First thing to start to go is (what I think it is) a wheel bearing, so that fucker is squeeking occasionally and last night seemed to get louder. Then the exhaust is rusted to the point where the outer layer rusted open on the bottom, but now I can hear it starting to make noise so that has to be replaced too.

Then I've got to get a service done, which no doubt they'll find more problems and that will cost me a load too.

But on the brightside none of this shit happened when I was dirt poor, so I do have the funds required to cover some of what needs doing.
