Metaphoric Bullet Dodged

12,741 Days Alive

$1,200 Almost Spent

$254.38 Spent at the Veterinary Office

1 Second Opinion on Helena

Today was hellaciously stressful. It started with Spock’s veterinary appointment. He has a dual ear infection, but now he’s up to date on his shots.

I went to get the check engine light seen to and the damned mechanic tried to tell me I had to drop $1,200 for a new alternator. My current one is less than 18 months old. So, I took it for a second opinion and save myself a grand.

I’m… angry. I don’t get angry often, but I’m angry about the bullshit the car maintenance people tried to pull.

I’ve had a headache pretty much all day and have felt out of sorts since getting home. Probably because of said being angry.

But I managed to give Spock his ear drops without any bloodshed, so I’m happy.

I’m going to go crochet and veg for a bit longer.

Take your meds, folks.

    1. The second place said that my alternator can’t be dead only 16 months after replacing it the first time. And that the spark plugs were fine.
