melonie: The ignition switch in my car broke today. The shop want $100 to tow my car just under 1 mile. It's sitting at the shelter until I can find someone to haul it! The steering is locked so we can't just pull it. #damncars Apr 19, 2014 15:28:07 GMT -5
maryellen: oh no melonie that sucks. do you know anyone that can put the switch in for you to save some money? Apr 19, 2014 17:24:29 GMT -5
melonie: The stupid ignition worked when we went back for it. I plan on putting it in myself. A little known fact: I can work on cars thanks to my step dad, and being very mechanically inclined... and stubborn. Apr 19, 2014 20:47:14 GMT -5
emilys: "I used to do clicker training but some people were mean to me and I found out that some people don't practice what they preach. So I've gone back to yank/jerk." Seems to be a growing meme.... Apr 21, 2014 17:43:11 GMT -5
