After waiting forever for my uncle to get together with his mechanic friend and get my car repaired, my mom and I decided to take matters into our own hands. Our insurance company was called, the roadside service sent along a tow truck which towed my car to our usual repair garage, and my car was fixed and back in my possession five hours later.

And that, folks, is how you get shit down. Okay, sure, it probably cost me a lot more than my uncle's friend would've but after two weeks of having to be carted around like I'm five fucking years old again, I don't really care. I'm just glad to have my car on the road again.

It's still got some issues with it — it needs a front end alignment (which supposedly the body shop did when they repaired it after the gator accident), the instrument panel is totally broken, and other miscellaneous things — so I think I'm going to possibly look into trading it in and seeing if I can get a new car. *crosses fingers*
