Another sleepless night, finally forced myself to go to bed at 4:00 a.m. The phone woke me up at 9:43 a.m. it was the mechanic saying mom's car was ready and I could go pick it up. I told him "did you not say it would take at least 10 days to get the part?" he gave me some story that I am not even going to relate because I am sure it is a lie plus it makes me angry just to think about it.
Told him if he could bring mom's van and then come start dad's car. That is when he informed me that he came by yesterday and started it but we were not home. I asked him why did you not leave me a message ? Told him that when we got back I noticed the car had not been moved, therefore I figured he had not come by. I would of assumed he would of at least have taken it out for a test drive. Claims he was here 45 minutes and got it running so saw no need for it.
Went to see if the car would start and yep you guessed it....car would not start. Called him and told him so. Said he would bring the van and then take the car to his shop. Remember he claimed it was the carburater? Now it is the gas pump plus probably a defective battery !! Tomorrow who the heck knows. I have promised myself that this is the last time I am going to use this mechanic. If you are ever in Del Rio and have car problems do not take your car to a mechanic on Frontera Road...find someone else.
On a positive note Mom saw how upset I was and to cheer me up she sprung for a pizza. Thank you Mom :-)
