En Fuego

When I started blogging again, I didn’t want it to all be me harping and being negative, but don’t we always have the best of intentions?

The Daughter’s car burned down. I suppose I could say the whole thing went up in flames, but that would be a lie. It was just everything from the front seats forward. And then the backseat area just had melted fabric falling off the seats and the headliner. No big deal, right?

Well, she didn’t have the insurance necessary to cover the cost. And the car is financed. In her father’s name. Of course. So, now we wait for the all the various parties to conduct their investigations and determine the cause of the fire.

I suppose it is too much to cross my fingers and toes and hope that the manufacturer finds a defect and assumes financial responsibility and offers restitution. But, that’s what I am hoping for. I honestly need this to happen.

Until then, I have once again resumed my taxi services. And, I’m not too happy about it.

But, here are the good parts~ she and her friend, a passenger at the time of the unfortunate event, were both able to get out of the car safely. She has gap coverage, so that will likely pay something on the debt. She was able to pull off at a rest stop when her car began to malfunction. Fire crews arrived to the scene within a few quick moments because she was able to identify exactly where she was as soon as the 9-1-1 operator answered her call. All travelers on the highway at the time of the fire were able to safely get where they needed to be. We haven’t killed her yet.

It’s the little things. Right?
