The shop called today about my car. $550 for a new cam sensor and oil change. Ouch.
Living in Southern California, you simply have to have a car. The nearest market is about 3 miles away with stretches that don’t have sidewalk. Getting home with a week or two worth of groceries would be very nearly impossible. Well, I guess you could steal a shopping cart… but they have even started attaching alarms to those. So, I’ll bite the bullet and pay the bill.
