This morning my car was due in the garage for an MOT and service.

Last night the timing belt broke literally a mile from home.

If I had have walked last night instead of being lazy, the car would have made it to the garage instead and I wouldn't have to fork out 500-600 over and above the damage of the MOT!:tizzy:

Just to put this even further into context:

The reason I took the car yesterday was to get to a comedy night in time for the free buffet they put on as part of the entrance fee...:rolleyes:

Apparently fate has conspired to punish my cheapness by making me pay for my free meal after all...:cry:

A broken timing belt could ruin the entire engine. You're luckier than you think.

I might be having a life crisis. It's too early to tell.
