1. What the hell caused $2800 of damage?
I wish I could be more helpful to cheer you up. But I am currently unable to.

2. One up: I spent almost 2 hours in line at the DMV...
just to take a <1 min eye test and a 5 min permit test. I passed both.

13. A guy's gotta make a living. Have you checked the economy?
That's why you gotta protect yourself!
Your bank account is already being debited.
Thanks for your business, Writer!

5. Well, I don't know if this will cheer you per se
And I don't know what kind of car you're driving now, but have you though about taking that $2,800 and buying another car? You could probably get a good ol' Volvo with only (yes, only :-) ) 100,000 miles on it.

7. Is that the only thing you're sad about?

Just curious because sometimes I focus on something that I think bothers me, when it really is something else.

8. Presently, the car is pretty much it!
We will bite the bullet, and pay for it, but I do not have to be happy about it LOL
