Got the call that I needed- my vehicle is FIXED! Took almost 3 months, and I'll admit I was about to write this sh*t off...the only unfortunate part is that I didnt have all the money to get it back today- but because it took them this long to fix, they arent going to charge me any "storage fees" and will give me the time I need to pay off the rest of the balance(which is next Friday).
I'm just happy that this mess will be over. Been at the "mercy" of public transit for the past 2.5 months; been taking 2 HOURS to get to work in the morning & get home in the evening(the trip in my vehicle is only 30-40 min). Also had to spend out extra money for a taxi coz I dont live as close to a bus stop(when I do walk to the bus stop it takes 30 MINUTES). I get home after that long trip and I'm worn out af; then have to get in bed before midnight coz I need to get enough sleep so that I can do it all over again.
I'm good on Monday...by Wednesday, the whole transit ordeal is taking a toll on me; by Friday I'm tired af and crash out by or before midnight. I spend the weekend trying to recoup, and then we're back to Monday before I know it.
It also works out coz my boss is gonna be out half of November, which means I gotta be in the office early; that gives me some extra OT hrs...now that I will have my vehicle back I can get every bit of OT I need so that I can have a decent holiday season.
