Car Update

Well, it ain't the battery -- never_fear came over to give me a jump, we popped the trunk, and there's a brand-spankin'-new battery in there. When I gunned it during the jump, the interior lights came on, the headlights flared, and it completely failed to turn over.

So now I'm sitting at home waiting for another tow truck to arrive. A tow truck which, when I called the mechanics, they asked if I was covered by AAA. I said "'re not charging me for this, are you?" The mechanic's reply: "Well, no, not if it's my fault. But if it's something new, of course we have to charge you for it."

What could possibly be 'new' that needs repairing? I haven't driven the car since I got it back from them the first time.

Gaaaah. This really fucking sucks. I do not have money for MORE auto repair, and I am not looking forward to screaming at these guys that they better not charge me for some shit they should have done in the first place.
