Once Bitten Twice Shy ...

My car is out of the shop already, well, it's been out since last Thursdays or was it Wednesday? I forgot already. Well, old age does that to you. The first thing that goes is your memory, then your mind and then you're screwed ... LOL!

As I was saying my car has finally been fixed and it's working just fine (for now at least). Actually it's all really my fault for it deteriorating so badly and always breaking down. I've neglected it for way too long and I guess it was its way of teaching me a mighty expensive lesson.

Well, I've taken heed of its lesson and started to go back to my old ways of taking car of my car. I used to be very fussy with it. I'd wash it almost everyday and dust the carpets out without fail every single time I come home form anywhere. I'd take it for its regular service even before its due date and it has always served me well.

Only in the recent couple of years I started slacking off and surely but slowly it started acting up on me. I should have realized it was crying for help in its own way by the number of times I had to change its car parts almost every month. Well, after the huge chunk of money I gave my deviously smiling from ear to ear mechanic, I'm all the wiser now.

If something acts up, I'll take it and get it fixed right away, not wait until it completely stops functioning. When it's time for servicing, I'll take it right away instead of saying maybe tomorrow, maybe next week, maybe next month. And I'll wash and clean it as much as I possibly can without causing it to rust from all that washing ... LOL! It's time I won back the affection of my car :D
