Here was the plan. Since I was going to be in DM, drop the car at the shop to get a couple things fixed. I wouldn’t need the car anyway, and it would be done when I got back. Sounds good, right? Logical?
When I went to the shop I used the last time, there were a couple papers outside. It was the day after Christmas, I figured they were taking a short holiday. Nothing went off on my radar. I wrote a note, put in the key, and dropped it in the “overnight” box. The following Monday, I called Taed to check on it. He’d heard nothing and when he dropped by — more papers.
Here it is Saturday, a full 8-9 days since it was dropped off, and nothing. I’m going to have to use Taed’s key to pick it up ’cause I need it now. I guess we should have done that Wednesday, or Thursday, or Friday… UGH.
SIGH. It was such a good idea. I guess I just should have checked that they would be working. Hell, knowing my luck they’re out of business and I’m never going to get my key back.
As Bugs says, “What a maroon!”
