My Car is a Lemon

More accurately, my car has it out for me. Every single time that exams come around, it finds yet another way to break down.

Midterms it was the engine. Finals, the tire blew out and I had to get an entirely new set. The eval 3 weeks ago? Engine light kept coming on, so I took it into Grease Monkey.

Now, this set of midterms, it's found an awesome new way of dying. It overheats. The fan sounds like a dying giraffe. I need to take it in to the shop. Otherwise, I might destroy my engine. This I know. And yet, I'm going keep driving it. Quite literally, it would have been impossible to flip out at a worse time.

Oh, and a big shout out to my biochem prof for making that absolutely awful exam this morning. Also, way to give us a false sense of security by making the "mock exam" about 200% easier. Jerk.

  1. If there’s one thing I learned in engineering school, it’s this: When you buy a car, ask the dealer which day of the week it was made on. (Threaten to leave if won’t give you the info, they can totally find it out). If it’s made on Monday, don’t buy it. If it’s made on Thursday, primo!

  2. At least you know why you did the extra studying…

    Great site. Just found it and I’m reading from the back up. Really interesting stuff!
