Default Rant.

So I went to the track tonight. (cecil) It took me about 2 hours to get there in traffic and it was $12 to run. Right after I pulled in, I could hear my drivers side wheel bearing crunching agianst the passing cars. Now when the wheel bearing goes bad, it likes to shake the wheel nuts loose. I tried to tighten the bolts so I could try and drive 70 miles home and with almost no effort a nut snapped off. So I'm lucky enough to have AAA and a 100 mile towing plan so I called them and they towed me home. Now I have $1 on my pocket, gas is probably going to be $4+ a gallon tomorrow, I need to buy a $150 wheel bearing, and I don't get a pay check till tuesday.
Good news: I found out about the bearing before I was going 100 mph down a race track and my wheel falls off. Something else that might have gone wrong running down the track didn't. And I still have a 1/4 tank of gas.
Nothing left to do now besides wait it out, study for classes, and get drunk immediately.
