more automobile woes…

Today I had to take a day off of work because my car wouldn’t start this morning. A little irritating simply because it turned out to be just the battery again – the guy from the shop told me that it was pretty much because Wal-Mart sells crappy batteries…I guess you get what you pay for, eh? That was $140 down the tubes and now I’m stuck trying to get Wal-Mart to give me my money back for a defective battery – I took it in today and they wanted to give me “current value” for the thing, which would’ve subtracted five months worth of usage from what I paid, but damn it, today I had to waste an entire vacation day and a nice chunk of change to boot, so they’re going to have to do better than that. The CSM on duty gave me a number to call back on Thursday to speak with their Tire / Lube manager … but I’m just going to call corporate instead – just because your bosses are all in a meeting doesn’t mean that you can just brush away customer concerns that you’re too afraid to authorize yourself…

…plus, Mom tells me that shit flies something fierce when the manager gets a complaint call from Bentonville! 😉

But other than all of that nonsense, today was a good day…certainly one worth taking off for, I would say. I got a bunch of stuff done for upcoming comic-related projects, played clean-up around the house a little bit, and even had a chance to watch an entire movie! It wasn’t all that good, but hey – the time itself was nice!

So now I’m going to bed before midnight for the second day in a row … if I can keep it up through the weekend, I’ll be impressed! (It’s not that I don’t like staying up late, but you wouldn’t believe how much I got done this morning…before noon even!) I’ve decided that my Christmas gift to myself this year might end up being a MythTV box so that I can finally start utilizing my home theater system for MP3s and movies and whatnot – we’ll see how that works out…
