Annoying Tidbit, Funny Tidbit

ANNOYING
Took car (2004 model) in for 30K service yesterday. That alone set me back $500. Got a late-afternoon call letting me know that I also needed new front and rear brakes. Another $500. I'm getting my quarterly bonus on Friday. I've always dreamed of spending my bonus getting work done on my car! All my prayers have been answered.

FUNNY
When I put Riley in the car this morning, he reached for a couple of linking letters that were on the floor of the backseat. I reached down to get them for him and said, "Oh, you want those letters? There are two letters for you. What letters are they? Let's see . . . we have V, and, well, would you look at that, the other letter is D! We have VD! Fantastic!" I was more amused than Riley, that's for sure.

The other day I found my one-year-old walking around with my empty birth control package she found in some garbage can. I should have taken a photo and sold it as advertising.
Love the VD story...

Love the V-D story too, Izzy loves playing with tampons, takes them out of the package and pretends they are some kind of cigar, freakish yes, hilarious YES!

Hate cars as well, dreading my inspection coming up, they always find something wrong, a little screw that is loose and needs to be replace to the fine tune of $500 bucks, why is it always in $500 increments??!!??

Those babies are just too cute, love the pics!

Hate car maintenance. The dealer's going to try to hit me up for a couple of hundred worth of crap at my next oil change, when all I really need is an oil change and tire rotation. *sigh*

As far as letters go, I love it when folks at work talk about short term disability. So hilarious when they say that someone's out on STD. Hee hee.

My husband changes our brakes when they need it but it only costs around 60.00 for the parts. Someone is getting rich off of the 30 minutes it should take to change all the brakes. Also when we buy the first set of brake shoes we always get life time warranty and then any time after that we have to change them we get to trade in the old ones for free new ones.

I wish you were closer, I would make my hubby do your brakes for you. That is really expensive! I hate paying for car maintenance as if we don't pay enough for them to begin with!

I was doing a lab experiment the other day and labeled one group in particular VD (Very Dirty). I laughed for at least a good 2 minutes after I realized what I had done.
