This happened last Wednesday night.
I sort of feel like my car has lost a little bit of its virtue. For instance, when I bought my first car (used), the dealership hadn't changed the oil and didn't bother to tell me. I drove it 2800 miles and the engine completely seized up as one huge hunk of useless metal. So we got a new engine for it. But I never felt the same way again about that car. When I bought it, I chose it. And to have the heart and soul ripped out of it and another one put in, I never felt like it was the same car that I had chosen.
So now with this car, obviously it's getting a new passenger door and a few surrounding parts are being replaced as well. And they have to repaint that side of the car. And I just feel like it won't be the same car anymore, the one that I chose. And it's so new, and I bought it so recently, it's going to be this changed thing for years. We've had this car for four months. And come to think of it, my first car I had for four months when the engine seized. Do I have a 4 month curse?
