The words ‘Fecking’ and ‘Saga’ spring to mind

It would bloody frost you… …

A while back (I can't find the post now, but I'm sure I mentioned it) I told you about the problems I was having with my car.

It was in the shop a couple of times, and they thought they had it sorted, but about a month ago it started acting up again. I could still drive it, but I knew it was going to have to be looked at. The problem was, I had to have the car to get myself to college. So the plan was to get it in during the mid-term break this week while I didn't have classes.

Fate intervened and on Monday of last week the car broke down for good and I was stranded at college :irked: I managed to get myself and the car home, but I still missed two days due to lack of transport.

My car has been with the mechanic ever since waiting on a new alternator, which apparently has been very hard to source. The parts finally did come in this morning and I was all set to go and collect the car tomorrow.


I just got a call from the garage. They were sent the wrong parts. 😥

They will hopefully have the right ones in in the morning and will fit them as soon as they do. But if I'm still car-less on Monday I don't know what I'm going to do.

Wish me luck :spock:

  1. Maybe you can carpool? There isn't public transportation in your neck of Ireland? We don't have public transportation in my town, also. Could catch a taxi or reserve some transportation from the government township a month in advance, like, for going to a doctor. Can you ride a bike or get a motorbike?Does your college have transport? I noticed that the college near my house had a little bus there when my daughter went to school there this past summer. She didn't know much about it as I was her transport.Maybe a friend will let you bunk with them as your car gets fixed? My best wishes for your problem getting solved!!!

  2. OOOh no. …that's very frustrating! :(can you telecommute? Or maybe fly on LWU!!!:DGood luck with the car!

  3. Thanks for the support and suggestions everyone :up:I looked into buses, but there's nothing that would get me to the college in time :down: Some of the routes are just madness, it would take me hours.Taxis are also a problem, unless you know a driver they don't like to come out to the middle of nowhere. And since I've always had a car, I don't really know a taximan. Plus I dread to think of the cost, it's about a 20 mile trip.Walking forty miles five days a week would require divine intercession San. But all is not lost :hat: seems Mam knows of someone who goes to another school in the same town. If the car is not ready I might be able to get a lift with them.
