So here I am, driving to work in silence (relatively) when I happen to look down and notice my temperature gauge is pegged PAST the H for HOT. Swearing commences... there's no evil steam coming out of my car (that I can see in the traffic) so I crank the environmental controls over to Hot, crank the fan, and pray like a motherfucker... at this point, I'm 1 exit away from work.
Despite the settings, the air that is caressing the engine of the car before arriving in the cockpit never gets that warm. I make it to within 100 yards of my office parking lot and the Check Engine light comes on. So I quick pull in, grab a spot and poke my head under the hood.
There's steam, but not coming from anywhere that *I* understand. I can only tell that it's coming from NEAR the new alternator that I had put in two fucking weeks ago. I swear, if those motherfuckers fucked something up while they were putting in the alternator I'm going to be exploding some greasemonkeys.
So I go inside the office. Do I have my AAA card on me? No. I call anyway, and the nice lady hooks me up, and the tow truck arrives a short 20 minutes later. The tow truck driver is very nice and takes away my car to their approved service station near by. Now I wait to hear what ELSE is wrong.
I think I'm cursed.
Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
Fuck fuck fuck fucker.
