Well, I guess after that mine is pretty weak...
So my sister is off to college in Baltimore. My parents decide that my car, which is newer and much better maintained (because I put the work in to it), can make it up there and back easier than her CRV. So, she gets my car (which, admittedly, my parents helped pay for) while I now get to drive her CRV. I drove it for the first time today, and immediately hated it. It's a 4 cylinder, so acceleration on it is a joke. It's boxy and sits high. I do light that it's not much smaller than my old car (Pontiac Aztek. Yes, it's ugly. But I love the damn thing!), but while the Aztek could corner almost as well as a car, the CRV is nowhere near as nimble.
Plus, she never maintained the thing. So I have to do some work on it. And it smells weird. Like, she left her soccer gear (and some friends gear) under the seat after practice during the spring, when it was hot. Ew.
Going to talk to my parents tomorrow about selling it (all the cars are in there name so the insurance/loans would be better). The only positive is that it's All Wheel Drive. So if the weather gets dicey this winter, I at least have that. Also, the stereo in it SUUUUCKS. And you know I gotta rock.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
We put our glass to the sky and lift up. And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya. So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us. And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya...
