Going on vacation has been hell. We have had a series of WTF’S happen to us.
My husband who is currently trying to become a police officer with all his might, had to take his fitness test on the day we were expected to leave for our awesome vacation with friends. However, he didn’t read the entire instructional email that stated the following day was reserved for the written test. (No sense in going to the fitness test if he can’t go the following day for the 2nd portion. There are no make-ups) So, now we have to wait for the opportunity to open back up. That was number one. Lets count down shall we?
2.) We start driving our car around town, to handle our last minute details, before taking off to California to put our toes in the sand. What happens? Our car is shaking… quite a bit. We spend so much time bouncing ideas off of one another for what it could possibly be. Well, nothing we can do about it until we get back, so lets rent a rental car, shall we? (Come along on my journey)
3.) Now we are on to getting our rental car we already reserved 2 days prior, for an exaggerated fee of about $200.00. Awesome! We get to the budget car rental place, and oops… they won’t accept our debit card without us jumping through hoops. No time for those shenanigans… so we head to Enterprise..come along on the trip…
4.) Pull up to enterprise. They are out of cars… We have to go to another enterprise.
5.) We finally get to enterprise and decide… we need a little joy in our lives, lets get a truck!!! Don’t forget… we need to call Budget car rental place to get our deposit back… come along on the next part
6.) We called Budget car rental place… they can’t get our funds back on our account for at least 3-7 business days… Time to go on vacation.
7.) Screw our problems back home…we are on vacation this is no time for stress….
8.) Vacation is over… time to go back home.
9.) We are home… and… looks like someone hit the back of our car and left. Well, Eric needs to get to work so when he gets off we will figure out the car situation.
10.) Eric comes back upstairs… Can’t go to work. Car tire is skeletinized. (Not a word.. Don’t care)
11.) I’m completely at a loss for words. I have no idea what to say.
12.)At one point, Geicos’ system was down, so we couldn’t get a tow truck [to get to the tire place] until they got their system back up and running.
I feel like a T-Rex Right now!!!!!!!!
