How to work without a car..

images (43)Quick, you wake up Monday morning and you have a flat tire (and by flat I mean…no air at all).You have two hours before work where you will be transporting precious cargo(aka kids). Do you get a rental (although in America you have to be 25 to rent a car..which I am not)? Do you call in sick? Do you take your roommate/parents car even though it might be an imposition to them?

…idk. All I know is I am currently in this predicament.

I drive to all of my jobs, one being about 20 miles away. But yesterday my car decided to break. I have a cracked rim which is causing the pressure in my tire to continuously go down, (I have learned a lot about cars the past two days..) which makes it pretty impossible to work. So it got me thinking..I’ve never been in this situation before. No car, no work, NO MONEY! For a poorer-than-dirt college student, no money is NO GOOD. My solution, and I don’t know if it is good, but I woke up at 4 am to take my dad to work. Then I took his truck to my work. The kids loved not being cramped in my slightly more economical car, but I spent more in gas going to work than I usually do in my car in a week…

Have you ever had car troubles on the job? How did you handle the situation? Did I do the right thing by imposing on my family to get to work? Should I have taken the day off?

 

Tell me what you think. 🙂
