Update On The Car


It's with a grievous heart I announce that my beloved car, which has received more lub then me, is now resting in peace. It will never drive me to a hotel for a hot night of passion or to the beach for a rendezvous or just a cheap thrill in the back seat.


With a blown head gasket and a cracked head and high mileage it'll cost me more to repair it then just to replace it. My intent was to buy a newer car at the first of the year so this just speeds things up.

*dries tears*

Now for the interesting bit of news...

I tell my ex about what had happen. He says, "Oh no big surprised."

Predicting a slam I had to ask, "Whys that?"

"They told me 8 or 9 months ago when we had that work done on the car that the radiator needed to be flushed out and that there wasn't any coolant in the car."

Now before any of you start to say "Alia, you should have checked the coolant, sweetie, it's your own fault." I want you to know I have... I have had friends do it too... And just last month I had my car serviced (well the oil and the transmission anyways, but they did check my fluids). So this doesn't make sense to me what my ex is telling me.

I ask, "What do you mean there wasn't any coolant in it?"

"Well there was but there was gung in it and it needed to get cleaned out."

"So you mean to tell me that you knew my car needed to be flushed out last year and you didn't have it done nor did you tell me?"

"Well yeah I knew but I forgot because we were going through all those issues."

Now you know why he's remaining the ex!

Okay... the man has three vehicles, while I have one. He had intimate knowledge of my car that I didn't and 'forgot' to share it with me. Somehow I feel another stab of that knife. I did get one of his three vehicles from him the other day, a crappy commuter truck that's on it's last leg (actually gets better gas mileage then the car did). But as I said before, it's not the end of the world for me. My car buying has just been stepped up a bit. In the next few weeks I will own a newer nicer car and all will be good again.


I can't help but feel every time something happens in my life it sums it up that I've made the right choice to move away from the ex and make the 'ex' a final part of my life. What little he has done to help me over the last 7 months doesn't measure up to all the things he has done to hinder my life. I have lost so much. But haven't we all when it comes to dealing with separating from someone who we love but doesn't love you back. I can honestly say that I am not fond of this man. In fact, I'm very angry with him.

Just last week he said to me, "It seems like you don't like me anymore."

"I don't." I told him blankly. I have wasted enough emotions on him. I will remain angry with him for sometime to come but that's the only emotion he'll get from me. It's the anger that is keeping my head on right and helping me to stay focused.

What is my focus?

My motto in life, of course.

"Life is meant to be enjoyed."

My ex fought the divorce in any way she could. The more nasty she got, the more I was sure I'd done the right thing by leaving.

Finish getting him out of your life. You know you're happier the less you have to do with him.

When you said the "car stopped working" you really did mean that the "car stopped working" didn't you?! Sorry to learn the bad news! Good luck in buying the replacement!

Sounds like a jack ass... sorry about your car. At least you won't have that kind of idiot around.
