Mindiesel It is no measure of good health to be well-adjusted to a sick society.
My immediate need for a car has grown. It’s really starting to worry me.
Reasons I need a car within the next two weeks:
I’m going into work this Sunday to meet with my manager. I assume I’m getting my shirt, talking about hours, filling out more paperwork, etc. She told me last night that I would be starting in roughly two weeks.
I’ll need a car to get to work, obviously. It’s a 20-30 minute drive. I do not, by any means, want to be driven to work. I don’t want to be a burden. I want to drive myself to work. Plus, my grandparents have already told me that they’re not driving me, anyway. So that leaves my Aunt, who has school every day, and my Uncle, who works every day.
While I’ve been living here, Gladys has come to visit me every other weekend. On Friday, her mom drives her halfway, and then my Aunt and I drive halfway to pick her up. It’s about an hour of driving, round trip. We then drop her off on Sunday.
But this afternoon my Uncle told me that he no longer wants my Aunt to do that. He doesn’t like she drives so much in the first place, and that if I want my girlfriend to come for the weekend, then someone has to bring her the entire way and it can’t be my Aunt or my Grandmother.
I am absolutely crushed. Mainly because I know that no one is going to drive her all the way here. It’s an hour and a half drive to get here. Driving three hours round trip would be too much to ask from anyone.
Therefore, I need a car so that I can commute to Houston on the weekends. I can drive there Friday morning, spend the weekend in Houston, and drive back here Sunday evening.
I just need a car. Soon. Because basically, if I don’t have a car, then I can’t work, and I can’t see my girlfriend. Shit.
