oh wow. its been so bad. today topped it off. well sabrina has been driving my car for just over a month now, because she cant take care of hers and i dont need to go anywhere besides to work during the week. so while her car sits in my driveway but with a combination of me and my dads favorite shop (they do the work on his charged s-10) it will hopefully be ready tomorrow. anyways.... wednesday night, shes an hour late to pick me up from work. i had recently had a fight with my boss about workload. basically, in my department (im an engineer) we run glass lathes that taper glass billets and we twist small glass billets 180 degrees(inverters) for the military. the other person with me, has done a shitload of different computations for temperatures and stretch lengths, as have i changed the process for inverting. he has raised the yield on the 5 different product lines to nearly 95 percent quality over the crap we used to produce daily, and ive been stuck with the same quality but ive decreased the twist time from an hour per run to just under 30 minutes. my boss got the raise and praise for writing the paperwork AFTER we did all the rough work, the other guy and i got shit. he basically told me without a degree we dont have any say. i was pissed and i havent twisted anything after that for the rest of the week, and im going back to the old process next week. fuck him. that night picks me up at 11, cuz she couldnt get out of her driveway. we had an arguement about it, since she parked back there the night before, and it took her awhile to get out due to ice. clue yourself in! its most likely still going to be ice! to top it off, ive got a silver scrape on my bumper cuz she ran into the neighbors car. no biggie, my car is getting painted next month. thursday night, she wants to skip school to go to wachusett mountain with her sister to watch the waaf luge competition. shes been crying lately because she got an 800 on her SATs and no college but the worst community college in the area wouldnt accept her. i told her a private school would, but shes hell bent on she cant afford it and etc. so i had it out with her because she likes to skip classes every now and then and stay home because of bad days at work on previous nights. its her own fault really. she is a smart girl. well it didnt matter school was cancelled and she went anyway. friday i agreed to go to her semi - after days of nagging i agreed, she was totally happy. ive been sick, so ive had no energy. i made a bet with my best friend (he was going as well) that we would be there for 5-10 minutes and she would run off. well tonight we went to the semi. we get to one of her friends' houses to get dressed and take pictures and shit. that didnt happen. idiot sabrina didnt bother to make sure the "ink device" that stores put on expensive shit so when you steal it either the alarms go off or they leak some interesting substance... well it was still on there, so we had to go back to her house and get a different dress. all that aside, we get to the semi. i feel like total shit. we sit for 10 minutes, and she takes off for 15. im like i look like a complete fool, my buddy is at the table with his girl, and her friend with her guy, and im all by myself. she comes back, and asks me to go out and dance. im like, uh no i feel all dizzy and i dont want to do anything. we had a fight about it right there. she was mad cuz i didnt want to go and i did to make her happy, and she said if i didnt want to go i should have stayed home. i told her fine ill just leave then, and i did. she knew i was sick, and going out of my way to make her happy but i guess it just wasnt enough. i feel like an ass, but whatever. she has no ride home, but i bet jay and meagan will bring her here... shes not getting my car tonight. im working on it tomorrow. she can walk home for all i fucking care. selfish bitch. i was driving home, and i notice my clutch slipping like hell. sabrina doesnt drive the car hard, but she has a heavy clutch foot. i guess its taking its toll. btw, the clutch is 147k strong. what really got me though, is she told me that she got ~240 miles on her last tank. thats not right, even with my hard driving i get over 300 easy. there is also some sort of chatter under the hood that i have yet to diagnose. when she gets here all hell is going to break loose. not only did she neglect her car, but now shes neglecting mine. the people on this board who know me know that im meticulous about my car, since i drive it hard everyday and drive it far. this makes me question its recent reliability.... well thats pretty much it for now, but if i missed something im going to add it. cliff notes: read the fucking story or dont.
