The following dialogue was heard when I took my car in yesterday for a routine inspection:

Repair dude: "OMG, those brakes are done for, how does this car even come to a stop anymore?"
Me, imagining all those serpentine roads I have to drive on to get to work: "..."

He showed them to me, too (standing UNDER your car up on the auto hoist is kind of creepy) and they really were rusty and jiggled in ways I don't think they are supposed to jiggle. O-kay.

Now there goes money I wanted to save up for next year's vacation. Sigh.

Real life sucks :-P

But hey, at least it didn't take you getting in an accident to find out how bad they are! I for one am very glad you're safe :) ::HUGS::

Tell me about it. :D

Thanks. *hugs back* I was feeling a bit iffy retroactively, imagining how I had merrily driven along with faulty brakes. But oh well, now they're fixed and I'm good to go again.

Look at it this way. If you didn't get them fixed you may not have been around to take a vacation the next time. Sucks I know but it had to be done.

I know, I was just feeling a bit whiny. :D But now they're fixed and I can start saving up again.

Echoing the others in saying at least you didn't need to get your bones fixed (or worse) due to some accident. In the end it's just money, dude...

That would have definitely sucked a lot more so yeah, I've made my peace with it. Was just in a bit of a whiny mood this morning. :D
