heat heat go away....

Thursday, July 29, 2010

i know we cant do anything about the weather.
i know it is a waste of time to complain about it, but my goodness!
i was supposed to go to pt early this morning, but i just couldnt get going, so i put it off until 3pm....it wasnt so bad out. hot but not so humid, overcast all day.
then i thought ok, once i get out of pt i think i will go to rite aid and food city, which are about 30 minutes away...no way, once i got outside and got in my car, the sun popped out and it got so hot, i came thru town and it was 96 on the bank.

so i stopped at the local market then came home and turned on the ac.
see, u might ask, what is the problem, well, i have no a/c in my car.
about 3 summers ago, i noticed my car just wasnt getting cool, so i took it to the garage and had the ac charged up. got cool, ran good about a month then stopped.
so i let it go, the following summer, i had a brand new air conditioner compresser put in it, had it charged up, same thing, stayed cool about a month then went back to the same old thing.
now, i spent about 400 plus to get it fixed
so i am just reluctant to take it back and throw more money at it.
i just cant feel like i can find anyone i trust.
so i called the local dealership, they wanted 100 bucks to run the dye in and find the leak......i can buy the dye and light for under 30 myself, and they told me 100 bucks an hour to work on it.
ok, so.....i keep my money, and i try to stay off the road when it is extremely hot.
i get soooo angry at honey, cuz i think, he should take a look at it for me, he should at least try to find the problem.
then i come to find out, his truck is the same way...
he says he doesnt have the time, ok, i get it, he works long long hours.
and he has a hard job which makes his body sore and achy.
but still, i just feel frustration inside that i cant get him to step up and find a solution.
i dont know how it is for everyone else, but where i live, there just arent that many reliable licensed mechanics who do air conditioning repair. and the ones who do, well, if they see a woman coming they think they can talk her into buying or paying for whatever they can come up with.
so, my gray roots are showing and my hair is so frizzy i look like those women on that commercial, the befores.....
and i am praying for snow.
