New Problems

This is my year for problems, whether it's death in the family, a broken leg, Pip, a dead computer or a car that won't start, they just seem to keep coming my way. Last night before my son went to work he found the car wouldn't start. On occasion we've needed to use a wrench to keep the bolts tightened to keep the car running. This on a brand new battery, just replaced a year ago. When he left work last night he needed to have it jumped, not just have the bolts tightened. This morning I went to the place where I had the battery replaced and told them what the problem was. I have an appointment on Sunday afternoon. Right now there isn't a charge for the work, but he also said that is no guarantee. The battery is under a two year warranty, so there won't be any charge in that case. I did make sure they knew I don't expect to pay anything for the problem they created, though I didn't put it in quite those words. So we'll see what happens on Sunday and hopefully the car will keep running until then. I have a full week and can't afford not to have a car. I don't even want to think what's next and how it will affect my pocketbook. I hope things are going much better for you. Thanks for reading.

It is good you know how to deal with this problem, and hopefully the repair shop can rectify whatever it is that is causing that problem.

I hope so too because I really need my car to work properly. Now is not the time for it to go nuts on me, but then no time is convenient.

I have faith in me, it's the other guy I don't have faith in.

Twice is a lot. I'm glad it was under warranty.

Sorry you are having so many problems. It has been an OK year for me, only a month to go, knock wood.

Me too because anything over zero for a cost is too much.

I hope there are no other problems that come your way anytime soon. Financial stress is the worst with these problems.

Twenty-nine days until 2016 so I hope there won't be anymore trouble this year.

This too shall pass. Don't let it get you down. Your Faith is obvious and extraordinary. You will get through this and forget all about it.

I know I'll get through it. It's just very inconvenient right now, not that it isn't any other time. Thanks for the encouragement. I doubt I'll forget about it.

Our day is costing us $5,000.00 for the new furnace being installed as I type this. There is always something!

I'm sure they will, and hopefully 100% on their dime.

I hope the problem with the car will be a small one and not a big one.

It's the battery. I don't know what they did when they installed it a year ago, but it's been a pain since and now it just seems to have escalated. I'm expecting a no cost fix because it was their doing.
