Someone's Out To Get Me...

...I swear, this month has not been kind to me. First off (and duotrouble can testify of my misery) my new car, a 2001 Mazda 626 was leaking gas profusly. I thought someone was peeing when I filled up my tank! But no, my precious $3.89 gas was coming out, so I call my dad up and tell him what was going on.
Alright, he says, bring it over and I'll look at it.
So I go and he decides to drop the gas tank to see if there's something wrong with the fuel pump. It took us over 2 hours just to get the stupid thing out from under my car's belly. Lo and behold, someone had tampered with it and did not use the correct screws. Hence, the gasket did not seal properly and that's where the gas was sloshing out. So we fix it. Then my dad tips the gas tank on its side just to check if it sealed properly. It did, but there was gas coming out of a hole! So my dad climbs back under my car and says "I can't f**king believe this (pardon my dad's French). They had CUT an opening under the back seat of my car to get better access to my gas pump!!! OMFG!!!
We just had to laugh and take pics. So maybe Carfax will buy my car because these things didn't show up on their report. But nah, I'll keep Millie, Jr.
Then my cat, Scuzmuffin, decides to go out one night and break her leg! So there's $200 there to fix it...
Then I decide to clean my fridge out and give it a good wipe down. No, I had to tear it apart because the previous homeowners decided not to deep clean. I found gunk like no other! I had to CHISEL crap outta it. X(
But on a bright note I got a raise at work!!!
So that's what's up with me. How are you?
