I have a very old car. My car is old enough to be in middle school; accordingly, it's started acting like a moody pre-teen.

I KNOW there's a leak in the coolant system. And also the oil pan. And the wiper fluid reservoir. This requires frequent fill-ups and top-offs of the various fluids in my car. Even though it's becoming a bit of a pain, I haven't had a car payment for years and my insurance and taxes are ridiculously cheap.

As I'm chugging out to work this morning, I realize... Something is off. My heater is ditching in and out and my engine thermostat is creeping higher...

AW FUCK THERE GOES A WATER HOSE EXPLODING AND SPLASHING WATER ALL OVER MY WINDSHIELD

I'm a total moron and forgot to put more coolant in this week. facepalm I had to miss work today (luckily I can miss with pay) and wait on my daddy to come fix it. And give me a lecture about making sure my fluids are topped off.

I seriously am envying the Amish their horse and buggies right now.
