Yeah, that's loud. And embarrassing.
So I dropped the van off at the garage today and walked home, hoping against hope that it was, I don't know, a loose screw or something. Maybe a loose metal part rattling. Anything, so long as it was cheap.

"Can it be something cheaper sounding?" I interrupted him.
"Um, no, ma'am," he said.
So I made him explain it all to me again, so I could explain it to Larry. I even asked questions, responsible consumer that I am. "What do you mean the axle is leaking? I thought it was just a piece of metal," I said, not so knowledgeably.
"No, ma'am, on the end of the axle is the boot and it...." and off he went, politely explaining it all to me again, even though both he and I knew I wouldn't get it.
Hey, I wanted my money's worth, okay?
So that's the story of how I spent over a thousand dollars today. I know, impressive! And I didn't even have to go online to do it.
