I have a couple contracts to draft and get out today. Have energy and am on point after a great exercise class and good sleep and healthy eating SO
HERE is the history of the CASE under review with "Resolution" Dept at KIA HQ:
Filed this in MAY:
"My car is currently at the dealer and the Service Manager JUSTIN advised I reach out directly here to request that my car history be considered as to whether it is eligible for engine replacement based on
* Updated info below- this was not on the intial tix. DID Call previously to communciate this to HQ:
I got a super funny email that said nothing a couple of weeks ago.
I have cleaned my car. Got all out ( but for one CD I am convinced I must have left in the car! HA HA Its like a ritual. When my car dies I bury it with good music.
I still miss the missing CD I am sure was in the Volvo when it was picked up to go to auction. Maybe someone bought that car and put in a new transmission and enjoyed listening to Dave Matthews once the car was fixed.
I forget what CD I identified as missing when putting all the CDs away I pulled from my car a couple Saturdays ago.
"In the end only kindness matters."
So if I don't get that CD Spirit back, well so be it.
If the car is indeed dead and its next move is sale to auction, and in this case I think likely then crushed for scrap metal. (I swear the CAT converter already stripped for the valuable metal- whether or not it needed replacement. HA HA My actual mechanic was not convinced my CAT even needed replacement and warned me of such. He really thought when that was told to me they were full of !*@& It was the time those were being stripped off cars right and left when not needed to be replaced cause of some valuable precious metal that there were supply chain issues, and expensive to produce or some such problem affecting its availability and cost. Perhaps COVID related at the time. Perhaps Embargo related. Perhaps environmental hazard of its production related. Perhaps some world instability , regional weather event etc. Climate change related...
OK Back to work.
Hopefully before an hour or so they take me off hold and my drafts are done as my kid who was rude to me before and said "Don't talk to me all day"
as they said they were busy
Hmmm... maybe the kid has a secret job. That would be kickin good! HA HA LOL
They are a mystery in my home.
BUT are planning a move to go to college and very proud of the kid for their moving forward in life. Packing has been happening in my home for the past couple months actually.
like Dental picks, shampoo, body wash... just some toiltetries that are not VALUABLE
I don't have space to store crap like that. HELL NO
TRUTH IS I do not expect that particular child of mine to ever need to live here again. This is a smart, capable young adult I am very proud of who I believe will follow through with success on their dreams and plan of living in Asia as a teacher for years to come.
I would honestly be surprised if they come back here.
GOAL: SAVE MONEY FOR TRIP TO ASIA! I want to visit my KID and my BROTHER and his husband there! I think being gay was the reason for him being an Ex pat! 20 or more years ago it was easier to live authentically elsewhere! I Get that.. One of my greatest joys in life however was that when he was to be married and not mention it to our parents I , as my mom would say, gave him "What for"
What a great phrase
Cause I asked "Why? What for"
What is the rational?
They might be wrong so please re-think
And you know what?
That proved true.
Heck if my mother was still alive it would be a blast to see her growth. She was hilarious as she took a painting class, one of those paint and sip things I think and she was offended at the assumption of the colors for the tone of the child she was painting that the teacher made. The teacher continued to not get it and kept trying to CORRECT as my mom was trying to paint the carmel colored skin of her grandchildren.
She became this advocate for acceptance and suddently aware of prejudices based on skin color. She faced her own and then started vocally facing others and speaking up about it when had opportunity.
I could just see her posting rainbows and Love all memes... HA HA
I mean there is nothing funnier sometimes than the coverted zealots.
Be it religious, or other shift in awareness and perception. Their passion is both admirable and I find somehow slightly amusingly sophmoric. I sound trite I know...
I suppose I am just TIRED of folks caught up so in the narratives they are told, and the zealots so convinced they are right.
Was not going to go there with todays writing-
Wash Post seems to cover new of Trumps criminal behavior
It is just so disappointing. I wish ONE PAPER would cover ANYTHING without bias I mean ANYTHING without such filer of preconceived judgments. The polarity of papers pespective and the obvious fact neither seems to be great at non biased journalism-
I mean Hitlar could not have come to power if people were not collectively passive and willing to submit to group think when group think was led by evil
So I have to pay attention
BUT I have to balance that ethical sense of remaining engaged with my own ability to take care of my home, my family first.
Be a good steward of all you interact with and do good in this world.
SO today I am taking car of my car and the work I have before me.
back to work
My local DEALER , upon last speaking with him told me that the OTHER KIA Dealer i brought the car to for a 2nd opinion
ACTUALLY DID Run the bearing clearance test
I think he said they ran it BCT and it PASSED at that point.
That makes no sense.
I think I had forgotten that it was said to have passed. HA HA I just mistakenly told Velma that they ran it and documented it failed? Said not sure why that was important cause Parsons in Winchester VA never TOLD me they ran the test and did not call it out. What THEY told me was I should not drive the car and THEY made me sign a waiver which I WISH I HAD NOT THROWN OUT
I mean I knew it was legal bullshit and not enforcable
BUT the dealer there made me sign some lol that I would not sue if the engine blew up! HA HA
they were like
I was like
But signed the worthless waiver...
I THOUGHT YOU CAN NOT sign away rights when it comes to strict liabilty for manufacture defects so I have heard. (but what do I really know. I may be wrong.Laws may have changed. I might recall this incorrectly from law school. There are "Exceptions" To every law and if you don't know them you are screwed. )
I have to look this all up and really understand if there is any argument that is solid or give it up. It might not take that long to chase down the law on strict liabilty
I did not have time nor energy.
My injury feels healed enough.
I get pain after a day of walking alot BUT Think it will be no more or less after a day going to an exercise class or taking a bike ride or swimming frankly
so I have given the muscles ALL rest for 10 weeks.
Good thing home Going to run an errand for the onery child wh asked me to drop a medical sample off at a lab. The lab closes at 4pm.
That was why the last communication was cryptic.
They said MAYBE They can help? what the heck. Will try and call THEM tomorrow
But now off to run the errand and then get work done.
I just felt like get this freaking done as I keep putting it off and putting WORK FIRST.
