    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 :wtf: 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.

    i feel ya bro- sorry about everything, most especially the girl problems, I often feel that I am very under appreciated, especially when it comes to the little things that they NEVER notice- if you need to talk, although i know we don't know each other, i'm always around- hit me up on IM

    yo, tell your girl to take the SAT's again. You can combine your best math and verbal scores to get your highest score.

    im not so worried about that anymore. im getting her entire tax return anyway for the money she owes me on the 240sx. like 500 bucks.

    unfortunately this happened 2 or so months ago while it was parked at her school:

    i was trying to find a c/f hood, but noone makes one for the coupe. im trying to get a group buy on my forum, but noone seems interested. the group buy for the 1.5L turbo manifolds went through though! just a months wait now..... :D

    You're being too suspicious. Reading into things too much.

    At the semi formal, the tag thing was horrendously stupid. I mean she didn't see it ?!

    The SAT thing is also something to be concerned about. She's going down the "Sue" road, and things will never get better in the brains department. But just because she pretty much failed the SAT, Doesn't mean she isn't smart. Intelligence is different from being smart - And she'll pick up intelligence as time goes on. (She's only a youngin, remember)

    Myself, I failed almost every damned class in high school. I have never once recieved anything higher than an F in a computer course. my class rankings were very low - 283 out of 312 people, with 8 of those dead. Yet my GPA was 3.2 from my well performed assignments and my testing. (I scored 1380 on my SAT)

    So Grades don't, and never will, make the person. College doesn't, and never will, make the person. And when I was your age, I read that same diatribe and disagreed with it - Just as I'm sure you will :)

    But what's important here is that you and Sabrina aren't seeing eye-to-eye. Every thing she pulls sets off your "Shit detector" and everything you do seems to piss her off. I have been down two roads in this situation, so lemme let you in on the results:

    1) The road I took was staying with and learning patience / understanding. Everyday I managed to get pissed off about something my girlfriend did. She too brought vehicles home with dents, Disappeared in the night and took efforts to keep her time unaccountable (It turned out in the end, that she WAS cheating) and didn't make things jive with the car. (I'll get to the car in a bit) I stayed with her until it was egg on my face. What you're listening to, in your head, is your instinct. And your instincts are usually right (More right than your conscious thoughts usually). It seems doomed, but I got 11 years out of it that way.

    2) Back out of the relationship before anything else happens. What you're doing here isn't evil, and doesn't villify her either. What you're doing is, quite honestly, not wasting anyone's time. Relationshit has rather poignant things to say on this topic. Why are you closing off your life to new girls and new people, keeping her life closed to new people and more compatible men, all for the sake of "Trying to make it work?" This method makes great sense to me, but it's difficult. I've become pretty fluent on matters of compatibility recently, and I can say that you DO have it, as Sue and I had it, but I can also point out with accuracy where it will lead.

    As far as the car, Sue did this to me all the time. Whenever she drove a car it got significantly less gas mileage. It's simply a driving style. People like you, me, and most of here in the car forums have a zen-like relationship with our cars. We read it with our feet and hands and respond back to it in a way that it finds pleasing. It is, really, zen. Micro-fluctuating throttle responses and precisely timed gear changes is what divides us from the other "point a to point b" motorists. If I were to borrow your car for a time, you would also find that it got different gas mileage.

    Surprisingly, Jeff K gets better mileage in my own CRX than I do. Imagine my surprise.

    i find the gas mileage thing interesting because im always in the high revs and she hardly ever is. maybe its that she drives the car in town? who knows, but due to common knowledge she should be using less gas than i.

    maybe i have it in my head that ive got expectations that are too high.

    when i graduated, i had a GPA of 3.6, and i scored a 1427 on the SAT that i never studied for. as of now, im a few online classes short of my degree in CS. come the end of summer, im getting the fuck out of incom unless i get a nice fat raise and some respect.

    my parents tell me i do too much for her. i cant help it, im a nice guy and thanks to airjockie im 10 times more mechanical than i ever was. its just too bad because of my niceness and always letting her borrow the car to go to and from work/school i havent had the chance to come visit you two and K.

    well next weekend, v day or not, im coming down. if she wants to come, she can, but i doubt she will. doesnt matter to me, ill be taking the mirage, and im purposely not fixing her car so shes stuck at home.
