I think I hurt my hand. Having a horrible day. Not only is it Thanksgiving, but every 6 years my birthday also falls on Thanksgiving.
But I have to work today. If you haven't heard, the pacific northwest got some pretty nasty snow and ice the last few days. The road leaving my home is very steep and shaded, so although everywhere else it's clear, my neighborhood still isn't. It's all compact ice. So my Jeep Wagoneer has been my life line out of here.
Last night on the way home from work I started smelling gas. The retard previous owner decided to route the rubber fuel return line next to the exhaust manifold. So over time, it's been melting and now has a huge hole in it. Strike one. Also, my alternator is going out and I'm hearing noises coming from the timing cover (its not the water pump, I just replaced that). Strike two.
So I figured the roads would be okay to take my Ford Crown Vic to work. Wrong, I slid backwards into a 3 foot ditch. Strike three.
When I walked back home I punched the tailgate of my waggy. Now my hand hurts.
On top of all this, my boss doesn't believe me since it's Thanksgiving and also my birthday. So now works angry.
I can not afford to take this day off, let alone pay for the damages to fix my Crown Vic or fix the Wagoneer. I feel screwed. This is the worst Thanksgiving and Birthday ever.
