No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
I am done.
I feel like I am being nickel and dimed into oblivion lately. I go in for one thing and end up finding out I need seventeen more.
OK, that's an exaggeration. But seriously, I'm just tired of always needing something else. I want to go to the dentist for a cleaning and leave with clean teeth, not another appointment for a cavity, a special toothbrush and special mouthwash. I want to go get my car washed and not find out that I need to fix my windshield for a crack so tiny I can't make it out.
Yes, that happened. I took my car to get washed, and as we sat, waiting for our turn, a very helpful representative scanned all my glass and pulled out a dry erase marker and started circling "potential trouble areas". He cautioned me that even though I couldn't see any of these spots, at any moment they could spread or shatter. So I should have the glass representative touch up all my glass, because you never know. And, really, for peace of mind, it really was a good deal.
I realize as I drive around with two kids I should be cautious, and I am, but these are areas that I couldn't even see AS HE WAS CIRCLING THEM. For all I knew he was just picking random areas and hoping for a paranoid mom. I mean, I hope he wasn't, but seriously, enough with this.
I got the car washed, and assuming that maybe there were a few dings here and there, started researching what I can do about it. Turns out, if you find a ding or tiny mark soon enough, you can treat it yourself without getting gouged.
I do know my limits, and when it's time, I will definitely turn things over to the professionals. But knowing that I can handle the small stuff makes everything easier to swallow!
