In honor of National Lemonade Day (who makes this shit up?), I have finally decided to contact a lemon law attorney for my car. It’s sad really because I just want my car to be fixed…or for them to give me a brand spanking new one that won’t shred my tires like confetti as I drive. Is this too much to ask?
If they think that telling me that they haven’t found a problem and that it is ok would fly with me…they clearly don’t know how much I enjoy playing the consumer advocate for myself…and frankly whoever else would ask. I hate when people are taken advantage of… Or treated like idiots. In this case, I feel like they are treating me like a dumb woman that doesn’t know anything about cars, much less that it ISN’T just a coincidence that the same passenger rear tire keep imploding! Now come on!
As much as I do enjoy advocating for myself, I have also taken the liberty of contacting the local news consumer advocate for help. I’m thinking between the lawyer and the consumer advocate and my incessant bitching, this just may get resolved.
However, I picked up my car from the 2nd dealership that has attempted to repair it and dropped it off to the 3rd and hopefully final dealership. Ironically, within five minutes of picking up my car to drop it off at the next dealership, the air pressure light came on. Seriously?! Yup! There definetly is a freaking problem! I have a good feeling about this new place. Am I an eternal optimist or what?!
In the meantime, as a wait for THE CALL, I am trying not to get too stressed out. Stress is an absolute enemy to all but especially those with autoimmune diseases. This stupid situation could set off a flare up that could land me back in the hospital if I not careful. So. I am trying to stay as calm as I can and even enjoyed a cold Golden Monkey last night…that helps to keep things in perspective and also…put me to bed by 9:30. I am by no means a drinker. Can’t hang with the big dogs anymore!
But, I think for today, I will skip the beer and pour myself a tall glass of ice cold lemonade and say Cheers to VW and Happy National “Lemon”aide Day! Salute!
Woohoo! My life is a blog!
