Angry The rage is powerful in me today - 02-02-2014, 02:08 | posts: 8,740 | Location: Indiana

So I go to start my car this morning in my garage, a 2012 Honda Fit with under 7k miles on it, it barely starts and 2 dummy lights are on, the engine and the traction control. WTF? Worked fine yesterday. It seemed to drive fine, go to bank and when I went to start it back up, it didn't start the first couple of times but then finally *phew.

So then figured I better go directly to the dealer's service center which glad I did because it wouldn't start up again. Turns out a mouse that thought he was a mechanic got in there and chewed up my map sensor wires.
$300 for a new wire harness and labor.

Immediately went to hardware store and now have 4 boxes of rat poison in the garage, 2 old fashioned neck breakers and 2 glue traps....That bastard is mine. For that $300 I'm gonna have it stuffed and mounted. My next plan is to just burn the whole garage down until I'm sure he is dead.

To top my saturday off, I get back after 4 hours with my car fixed and my wife goes to turn on the PS3 to watch a movie and no video output. I tested hdmi with another device and it's fine. Did the hold power button for 5 seconds thing and still black screen. Apparently it's either a handshake issue or gpu issue. I was starving, no breakfast or lunch so I just got her a cheap dvd player at Target to shut her up.

Then I busted an ink pen cause I used it ...due to lack of desire to get a proper tool...to pry open a stuck kitchen drawer which splattered ink on a new long sleeve. I put some hair spray on it and threw it in the wash, luckily it came out but I can still feel the rage within me.

Just be glad he went for the MAP wire and didn't get ahold of more. Those little bastards can really **** a car up.

You know when you accidentally drop something and it rolls all the way across the room and under the gap of couch/fridge/dresser and then requires you remove everything in the entire room just to get to it.

Thats my life in a nut shell. I feel your pain.

That's one reason I like my cars pre 2000. I hate how computerized they've become.

About the bad luck for the car. I had something similar happen to me last month. I installed brand new tires for my car and then not even 2 days later i noticed a freaking metal chip in one of the tires essentially making me to replace one of the tires again. I swear i cursed for an hour because of it.

Life's too short to spend time raging about things you can't control.
As for the ink issue, live and learn.

I caught 2 mice last night in the snap traps. I set a few more just to be sure and have the rat poison set out for future intruders. I feel a lot better today despite the fact that I did get my wife's car stuck on some ice in the driveway and slid it into our trash bins trying to get it out...but meh, it's not my car.

Set them free somewhere far. Don't go killing them or using poison.

I had one of those days last week. On my way to work, got stuck in traffic for a really long time. When I finally reached the city, almost had an accident (not my fault). When I parked my car, I took my trolley out of my car and found out that the handle of the trolley was blocked. It did that sometimes so I knew a good pull released the mechanism. Sadly, this time it didn't. The plastic broke into pieces, cutting open my hand.

So there I was, bleeding in the parking lot with a broken trolley and late for work. Since the handle was broken, I had to carry that heavy trolley up a hill. I tried to be positive about it and told myself that I have a good workout now.

Fortunately, the work day itself was pretty ok. But when I left work to go home. Some idiot driver (yes it was a woman) blocked an entire intersection for 15 minutes. She tried to squeeze past a bus to quickly go straight on. Because she refused to go back, the bus that was on the left lane, could not turn, thus blocking the entire intersection.

Ah well, now I laugh about it.
