I am heading home for Spring Break from Phoenix to Orange County. I get about 2 hours away and all of a sudden my car breaks down. I call AAA and they only cover up to 5 miles...well it took 30 miles to get to Buckeye which is $5 a mile after 5. So I'm already payin over $100. I get to the shop that he takes me to and this town is a podunk town in the middle of nowhere and looks pretty sleazy. Anyway, he says he will fix it, but it could take a week because he's booked up.
I am now freaking out because I know nobody well enough within 5 hours away to come pick me up. I tell the guy I will pay whatever it costs to drive me to the nearest big town and he said he knows another mechanic in the town he will try before he does that...He takes me there, but it can't be fixed unti tomorrow because he needs the part, but its gonna be 750 bucks and I already paid 100 for the tow, 100 for the hotel and 100 for the diagnosis and I am a poor college student!!!
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...
