If you don’t know me by now, I’m the kind of person that if something is bothering me I write . And I continue to write till I feel better. For a I know I may be the only one with affliction. As you probably figured this is one of those times.
I chose to make things clear from the beginning. I firmly believe one should earn what they are worth. If I work hard enough to earn a dollar , for example, I don’t want to earn fifty cents. Because everyone , I mean everyone earns fifty cents. what? It doesn’t matter that the person working next to you is lazy and does nothing all day, pushing his work off on others. Everyone I mean everyone earns the same amount. NO, NO, this doesn’t fly with me . I totally disagree with this tip of thinking.
So with that said may I continue? It seems that my car has developed a leak in the power steering box and in the cooling system. I check there fluids daily , filling them if need be. Hoping they will hold till I can afford the repairs. But this is not my main point. Intro only.
Leaving work today, it didn’t take long to realize I needed the power steering fluid. With none left in the car I wasn;t too worried I could make it to the grocery across the street. Walked into the grocery only to discover they didn’t have what I needed. Now we start to worry..
Not really knowing the area around there I femembered a gas station was right down the street, afew blocks,in a staight line. Here Inam thinking I’m in luck I can do this, no turns just straight down. I’m thinking cool I might as well get antifreeze as well. Well needless to say one look at the prices and I changed my mind about getting antifreeze and if I didn’t absolutely need the other I would have turned around and walked out the door. Paying for the power steering fluid , I quized the man behind the counter. He had a hard time maintaining eye contact besides stumbling over his words. I closed in the price was outrageous. He grew quiet . I turned and left…
Ok so that’s my story. So I will close now with a little math quiz. antifreeze cost $5.99 at the auto store, $7.99 at the grocery store, and at that gas station they wanted $14.99. Power steering fluid $2.20, $2.79, and $4.45 respectfully. Go ahead you do the math…. I know it will be the last 4+ dollars I’ll spend there. Thanks for listening…nikgee
