All This and Hormones, too.

I have a number of words for today...they're all

Today is the day that the collison shop was suppose to look over my car and make an estimate, so I'd know if it's gonna be reparable and I can get a rental car thru them, or if it's totaled and I need to rent a car in the meantime on my own.

I waited patiently. Stayed off-line (I'm on dial-up) except for 10 min this morning. I waited. Drank tea for my throat. Waited. Chewed my nails. Had my IBS kick up again. And waited.

Finally at about 3:30/4pm I called. They "looked it over but still had to put it up on the hoist," but they'd call me after they did. This meant that hadn't even really looked and the thing yet. ARRRGGGHHH!!!!!

So...I have no way to get to work by my start time tomorrow (6am) and will probably take a major hit on my record for calling in a day after I had a vacation day. PLUS I still have no idea what I'm gonna do for transportation to and from work.

I called a friend of mine. She's gonna come over tomorrow after she launches off the kid to school to help me with this. But....

To rent a car, while you can pay with a debit card, almost all the rental companies around here still want a "real" credit card. Which I don't have as I've been trying to keep temptation away and not get myself loged so far in debt I can't get out. The company that will rent with either a debit card or a cash deposit, doesn't have anything available for another 4 days. At this point I just sat and cried.

I have no idea what the f*ck I'm gonna do. I don't want to ask my friends to 'borrow' them and their card so I can get a rutting car, but it looks like I'll have to.

And I know I'm a lot more overwrought about this than I normally would be as the hormone fairy is here and at that time, I overreact to the weather report.

Well, I think I'm gonna play a bit to try to calm down so I can get to sleep as I'll need to get up early to call in and talk with my boss about the whole mess (she wasn't in on Friday) which will be a real treat.

Oh...I totally know the feeling you're experiencing, RMMC. Though for a slighty different reason: age. While I have a credit card and generally decent credit, and I have a clear driving record after 7+ years on the road (5 as a solo driver), I can't rent a moped since I am under the age of 25 and don't have sufficient insurance for any company to rent me a vehicle. Which has made for problems when I have needed to obtain transport for various things and been forced to borrow one of my parent's vehicles when they have needed both of them:(

So yeah...just take a deep, cleansing breath. Then scream real loud till something shatters;)

RMMC- you've had way more than your fair share recently sweety. I wish I could do more than send good vibes, best wishes, and much love...LOVE YOU

*nods and hugs* I'm sorry things are so hard. I'll put you in my prayers and thoughts as well. It WILL get better, I wish it hadn't gotten bad for you, but it WILL get better. *hugs again* those car people are fracking idiots. tell me if there's anything I can do. You'll figure out something, it'll be ok.
