Scheisse! My truck broke! Well the clutch actually. But it’s going to cost me a thousand dollars. A thousand dollars that I was going to use to go down to DMV and, finally, register my car in DC (it’s a long story.)
Luckily (if anything in this situation is lucky) it decided to die as I was leaving work and there is a transmission place just down the road. So I left the truck there and through the grace of S██████ and J███████ I made it to the metro to go home last night and from the metro to work this morning.
Now I am waiting for the mechanic to call me and give me the final price. (Ouch, my wallet is hurting!)
