When a $20 Dollar Oil Change Costs $128 Dollars
I was getting ready to spend an afternoon with the gal pal since I haven't seen her in a while. So I stopped after work the day before to get the oil changed in my car since it had been a while. The sign said "Special $19.99" so I figured hey why not? So I pull in and order the oil change. I pop the hood, and tell the guy I just want a basic oil change. I sat in my car and the guy goes underneath the car and then comes back and tells me "Your transmission pan is leaking... and there is a lot and I do mean A LOT of dirty crap in your oil." So my 20 dollar oil change ended up costing me 128 smackers. But it made my gal pal happy because her little man got his car fixed up and got to spend six hours with her. How did we spend the six hours? That's a no-brainer... on her couch with me laying down with my head on her lap and her running her fingers through my hair as I fall asleep while watching the Ohio State - Michigan football game. I know, I know... you're saying "Mik, you are such a romantic!!" Well, think about it. Where else can I write about fixing my car, spending time with my one and only, AND reference sports while still showing that I love my best girl? Of course she was just happy to have me there in her arms, snoring like a freight train... I don't think she knew that the TV was even on... let alone who was playing in the game. But her man was there with her and that is all that matters. I love that girl I tell ya... I'm going to have to marry her some day. She's a keeper!
