Well, I've been a very bad girl this week. Why I just don't believe it, you say. It's true. I've broken my sister's pretty car. ---->
See, I moved her car to a different part of the driveway on Wednesday and then went to move it back later and couldn't get the key out of the ignition!! So I called sis to come out and take a look,( 'cause obviously I don't know how to take out a key). Turns out that it was stuck but the car didn't turn off completely because you could still move it out of gear.
She calls the dealership where she bought it (of course, some other dealer has taken it over) and they say to bring it on over. And it should take about an hour or less. 2 1/2 hours later she is starting to get a little irritated and just before she gets up to find someone the service manager comes over to her and says (very solemnly)"Can you come with us?" Ummmm, she gets a bit concerned and puts away her laptop...they offer free wifi so she took advantage... and she sees.....Her poor car with the antenna ripped off and the whole hood scraped and scratched up. After they fixed the steering column and installed a new airbag they ran it through the car wash where the spring on the carwash door broke and landed, yes, you guessed it, on the car. So she has a rental car and is still waiting to hear about how long for her car.
They called the car rental place before they even came out to get her so the rental would be there when she saw the car. Oops. At least she wasn't out somewhere when the ignition column malfunctioned.
On the upside, I started my Olympic knitting and let's just say that I have already ripped it out twice. I've not knit something using a chart before and it's somewhat confusing. I don't know why because I can cross-stitch and that uses charts. But I have persevered and we shall see. I think it will be a good learning piece as well as a just pretty.

I hate car problems of any kind.
