Miss Information can't cope right now.

So, here are some of the things Miss Information cannot deal with.
1. Change.
2. Making Decisions
3. Spending Money

This past Saturday, she went car buying. She will never get over this. Never. See the last time she bought a car, the salesman was a brachiosaurus. Her car was just that old. In fact, she had planned to do this in 2009 but never got around to it. Sadly, recently the car has been showing signs of age. Stuff falling off the car while one is driving cannot be a good thing. Also, there's been a weird gasoline-y smell lately--hardly noticeable with the windows closed, so not a big problem, but still... Well and there's those noises...

Anyway, Miss Information survived car shopping with a new car and began saying her last goodbyes to her present car. Which has been a good car...that she never liked all that much...but still, a good car...with flaws. But she's a sentimental gal, Miss Information is. She picks up her new car today and it's been hard. Backing out of the driveway for the last time, driving down the street for the last time. It was the end. Final, kaput, over.

She was about half way to work when she realized that she left her important car paperwork at home. So, that requires a slight detour. During rush hour. At the time of day, Miss Information's neighbourhood is hermetically sealed from car traffic and requires much detouring and out-of-the-waying to a part of the city that permits left turns. Then a 30 second stop at home followed by a tedious trip to the other side of the city. Still during rush hour. That surely won't be annoying, right?

At least the return trip will be in a car that doesn't make noise or smell funny.

I assume congratulations are in order for successfully dealing with the dealer. I hope you enjoy this one more than the last....

I hope you two are getting acquainted. Enjoy the new car smell--it only lasts a few months.
