Bad weekends

Things that have gone wrong this weekend:

1. The car broke down. At 11:30pm at night. In the middle of a dark forest with no lights. And it was snowing. Aargh.

2. It took 2 hours to get a towtruck to come. Meanwhile, it was snowing. At 1:30am. Aargh.

3. Towtruck towed the car back to the nearest garage. Which is an hour's drive away from home. And it was snowing. At 2:30am. Aargh.

4. Slept in the doctor's mess at the hospital (towtruck driver kind enough to give a lift to the hospital). Had 4 hours sleep, in cramped armchair. Aargh.

5. Talked to mechanic. Engine will probably have to be replaced. Something about holes in the oil sump and no oil in the engine and driving a car with no oil. Aargh.

6. Took the train home. The train broke down too. Replacement bus service took two hours. Aargh.

7. Took the bus home from the train station. The bus also broke down. Walked 80 minutes to get home. Blisters on feet. Aargh.

8. Had to rent a car in order to get to work on Monday. All the nearby car rental shops closed over the weekend. Aargh.

7. Found a rental car place in the next town. £150 a week. Aargh.

8. Parked rental car in my resident's parking lot. Realised that left resident's permit discs in car at garage. Aargh. Left a note.

9. Rental car clamped. £150 to release. Aargh.

10. Still had to go for work this evening. Aargh. AARGH.

It's like one of those train-wreck situations they set up in movies. I can't believe all that happened to you! :( Hope you have a good weekend or break soon to recover, from the sniffles as well.
