Definition of 'Bad Timing'

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!

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...

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

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.
