Are we (my husband and I) the only ones who experience this? The amount of money you think of as a nice little bonus, is the EXACT amount your car will cost to be repaired. This has happened so often to me, it can't be a fluke.
When I just moved to LA my Grandma sent me off with a birthday check for $80.00. I drove myself down the 101 from San Francisco to LA, only to have my car break down as soon as I reached the Valley. My car's repair cost? $80.00!!
Who is up there keeping track of these transactions?
This morning as I cleaned out my swimming pool, my husband came outside to join me. Our conversation went something like this:
Him: (Just heard the weather report on the TV) Cloudy today, but sunny this weekend.
Me: That's nice. I don't mind these cloudy days when they mix it up a little. When it's cloudy all the time...
Him: They? When they mix it up? Who are they?
Me: (Nearly falling into the pool laughing as I realized what I said) Uhhh... I guess the co-worker of the guy who decides our auto repair bills will be the amount we were counting on saving... and the guy who works next to the karma police. That's who!
That's about as intellectual as we get around my house... especially in the morning.
