I hate cars

Seriously - we are on the verge of replacing our third transmission in as many years...

The pathfinder for some reason does not want to let me drive it in reverse. What does this mean? It means that when I want to go home at the end of the day, my co-workers get to look out their windows at me as I push the pathfinder out of it's parking spot, then hop inside and drive away.

In the morning, the same occurrence will be witnessed by any of my neighbors that are fortunate enough to be wandering around the parking lot at 7:00 AM.

If you happened to be fueling at or passing the Texaco on 10600 South, and 1300 West, in South Jordan tonight, you witnessed me doing the same thing after the pathfinder slid into a snow bank after I drove onto the ice as I came out of the car wash. Eli (my back seat passenger) was EXTREMELY amused and shouted commands and words of encouragement.

I would take the pathfinder in to be repaired tomorrow, but our other car (recent ebay purchase) is already at the shop to have all the brake pads, rotors, and calipers replaced - being that they are comprised almost primarily of rust.

Did I mention that I hate cars?

Personal helicopter, jet packs, suborbital transport (long distance travel), teleportation, worm hole or tesseract...
